Greek Peak, NY: 2/26/10

A foot and a half at home, and Greek Peak also reported 18 inches. When I drove down my unplowed driveway snow billowed over the hood and into the windshield. Subaru face shots in the driveway!

Snowboarding Greek Peak NY.

I was surprised to see a lift line up 15 minutes before opening. I got on the 5th chair. I thought yesterday was great, today was even better. The snow was light and powdery and DEEP.

I started out alone and skied top-to-bottom without stops, visiting all the ungroomed and untracked places. I ran into Marilyn on Chair 4, and we hit Chair 5 just as it opened. There was a lot of fresh snow on the trails and in the woods on the east side. I did 5 laps until Alsops and Arethusa were completely tracked out.

Acidchrist was busy with an injured, infamous, long-time Greek Peak skier. Marilyn left and I found Kelly, who I dragged all over for fresh snow. We skied it until it was tracked out.

Even hiked a few laps up to the closed Chair 2 to get freshies for our last 2 runs. Snowboarders had some trouble in the low angle powder with no poles to keep them going. It did keep me entertained. Should be a good weekend!

  1. It’s snowing again and it looks like Greek Peak is in the target zone. May make sense to get up early again and track it out before the crowds arrive. Then I have some friends coming over to xc ski in the afternoon.
