Well my annual trip is over for another year so thought I would start the thread.
Discovery - 35
Non Ski Days - 4(1 day in 4/6 weekends in Montana)
Almost right up to my arrival the skiing on Limelight had at best been sketchy. A series of weather events meant they struggled to get a settled base. However, this changed in the last week or two in February and by the time I arrived to ski on March 2nd the coverage while not epic was certainly very good and remained so through our closing day on April 9th.
We had the usual mix of conditions, hardpack, freeze/thaw, powder with only 1 day that I can recall where it wasn't much fun skiing Limelight.
The trip was a real rollercoaster. I helped haul one of our patroller friends out of Limelight after he had a double break to his left leg, I came 3rd in the 40-49 men's Discovery Open ski race and have my medal to prove it
, I was invited to the end of season ski patrol party, I met and chatted over beers to ex governor Brian Schweitzer which was hugely enjoyable as well as many other highs and a few lows along the way.
I'm already planning for 2018 with a second visit in November 2018 to hunt and hopefully catch opening day at Discovery for the 2018-2019 season.
