Alta Closed at 5:30 PMAlthough a Snowbird patroller seeking my input on snow conditions in Perla’s surprised me, it was a pseudorandom encounter with Marc Guido (firsttracksonline.com editor and skivt-l chief avalanche poodle) that started turning a good ski day into a memorable experience. No, it wasn’t just Marc’s politeness in waiting until after establishing that he knew me to ask what was going through my head in deciding to ski Perla’s while it was nice and firm; it was experiencing closing day at Alta with a bit of local guidance.

After spending most of Christmas Day working, I decided to take a few runs after dinner. There are a lot of downsides to living twenty yards from your office, particularly as the lone person in an IT Department, but there are also benefits. Taking three runs after dinner is one of the more important ones.

Sometimes, you just have to go skiing.

When you get hit with two feet of Vermont powder in late October, you are experiencing one of those times. I got a hint of what was to come when, on the night of 25 October 2005, my car wouldn’t go all the way up the access road. I’ve worked at Bolton for over two years now and was living in Burlington until last April, and that’s the first time I’ve ever gotten stuck coming up the hill. Admittedly, it’s the first time I’ve tried to make my summer tires work in a snowstorm, but that just adds to the excitement.

So yesterday (8 November 2005) was the Flying of the Towers. A large helicopter landed in the Sports Center parking lot early in the morning and then sat there until the clouds lifted sufficiently around noontime. The Free Press, The Times Argus, channel 3, and channel 5 all covered the event.
