Well lets just say I've gotten real jealous seeing all my friends pics from out West and seeing them getting some great turns. This morning I decided, Fuck it, I'm going skiing, doesn't matter how much or little now there is. I had scoped Bromley and Magic the day before but Magic had pretty much nothing, Brom was pretty covered.
Hiked up from near the Bromley Village (Condos). You can actually drive up a bit on the side of the mountain that saves you a bit of hiking. The hike up took only about an hour and a half and was pretty enjoyable except for a few places where the snow got super deep (not a bad thing on the way down).
I ran into a few snowmakers when I was up there and was a bit worried they might bust my balls about trying to ski when/where they were blowing. So I walked up, I was obviously super stoked to be up on the mountain for a bit, had a nice little talk with him and he didn't even mention that I shouldn't be up there. With the greenlight I was even more stoked (plus I was pretty much at the top so there wouldn't have been much he could do even if he had gotten pissed).
Hiked over the peak towards Corkscrew, one of trails at Bromley that gets ALL the snow blown onto it because of the direction it faces. They had blown some on Corkscrew but there was a lot of natty snow up there! It was great! The left side of the trail was covered in fresh fluffy white stuff. I was able to ski down to about mid station before it got super sketchy. Saw a couple more snow makers when I was taking off my ski boots just below mid station, I got a big thumbs up from one of them who was obviously stoked I was riding. All in all I couldn't be happier right now. Don't let those West coast powder fiends get you down. East Coast stoke is right in your backyard.
Freezing my ass off about to drop in
Actually some really nice snow up there! It continued to come down the whole time I was up there. Dippin into a real nice stash.
mmmm...surprisingly fluffy, not windblown at all
Drove down to the main lot to get a pic of the whole mountain
