My First Turn

My First Turn

Well it happened, my first ski turn of the season! With the weather depositing rime and a slight coating of snow, there was just enough to cover a small path. It may not have been technical, but gravity pulled me down the slope and that is what counts. Today’s turn marks the second turn of the season, as Kevin from State Park made first tracks yesterday. If this isn’t impressive for the sake of skiing, it should be a reminder that the weather on the summit is now very different from the valley below and one should remember the proper layers. I myself was bundled up for the cold (18F) and wind in my Eastern Mountain Sports gear.
