New York ski trip – In which I sound overly snobbish and superior and long to return to the great western frontier

Do you see something funny here?

Somebody at Delta is a genius.

See that? That is a DOUBLE BLACK DIAMOND at Kissing Bridge. It had some moguls on the side, but certainly could have passed for a green run back home.

Night skiing in the fog was pretty sweet.

Eating dinner in the car while skiing brings out the best in us. Ken insists on getting that disgusting white bread whose first ingredient would be bleached cardboard if the label didn't lie and say it was something ridiculous like wheat.

New York was sorta rural and pretty, although it's hard to get a good picture while traveling at 55 mph.

The trip certainly wouln't have been complete without a stop to tape the car back together.

This was a single black run at Holiday Valley. It might have been close to deserving a black rating, if only because it was mostly ice. I find it amusing to compare the background scenery in this shot to that of the page header, taken in Colorado last winter. Why do people like the East Coast again?

Holiday Valley, you are overpriced, over-rated, and overly full of rich New Yorkers with obnoxious accents. This food cost over $12 but it was a long way up a hill back to the food in the car.

And then it started to rain so we left.
