After a strong day downhill on the boards yesterday (Friday) today would be uphill focused.
After a day of accumulating snow and wind, today would be big blue and sunny
Our folly for the day would be up Cranmore – like Gibson to Easy Street etc..
Sally remarked early out of the base “I don’t know about this…”
I could not argue the reality and sudden impact going up can be. We would not be being licked by kittens today.
We came up something that was not groomed after we passed Schnieder. It was a hoot grinding up the mountain in better than 15″ of fresh snow.
We were back on the groomers at the bottom of easy street. Getting near the end.
I was feeling good as we slid across the last false flat before the top out. Sun was out. We were warm.
Up over the south slope headwall and we were done
Sally could muster a smile coming over the top
We took the bench outside of Meisters.
We enjoyed an agave based recovery beverage on the cold and windy summit.
Thats about it.
Almost 90 minutes up and 2 minutes down.
We had some mutual ski boot revelations on the way down –
