Sure, it was a thin-cover season here in the Northeast. Powder days were elusive. And dust on crust was often glorified with descriptions like “micro-pow”, “expert-powder” and “20-30!!….millimeters”. But despite the sparse offerings of the 2011-12 winter season in the Northeast, the last two weeks of nearly flawless spring weather helped to compensate by offering some of the most delectable skiing of the season. The abundance of warm air, super-edgeable snow – if not totally mushy at times – and bright blue skies had many skiers enjoying a regular dance with gravity with powder-day smiles on their faces.
With Old Man Winter regaining control of our weather pattern this coming week, it’s easy to wonder about what lies ahead. Will the Old Man coat our mountains with snow again, and give us another cycle of powder days and spring conditions to enjoy in the mountains? Only time will tell.
Ski you out there.
