Massanutten Trip Report 2/13

For Pres. Day weekend, I skied with Marz Jr. and SkiBud-C on Thu night, Fri (snow day, teacher work day) and Sat, Feb. 11-13. The girls had a snow make up day on Mon so had to come home on Sun. Fri was groomed powder and typical empty weekday, perhaps a few extra locals who had a snow day. Sat was a typical Mnut holiday, meaning not crowded at all until lunch time. The crowd was gone by 4:30. Lots of folks who checked in that morning were getting 4-hr lift tickets. Never a line on top for Lift 6. Even in the busy time mid-afternoon, probably didn’t have waits of more than 10 min for the bottom lifts. Slightly fewer people than usual for a holiday weekend, perhaps because of the cold and people worried about the roads from DC/Baltimore/NJ/NYC.

Got to do more black run skiing than expected because SkiBud-C started skiing off Lift 6 for the first time. She and Marz Jr. tried it out Thu night by themselves. Had a ball. Stayed on top pretty much all day on Sat. We took a long lunch break at the condo. I set up a semi-private lesson for the girls in the afternoon. That way it could be on ParaDice for sure. Meant I got up top quickly too by riding with them for the start of the lesson.
