Finally got out to Mass! Saturday morning was a bit chunky...probably due to Friday's rain. Loosened up and was good to go. Sunday was perfect. Nice bright sunny semi warm weekend.

Looks like pretty good Spring skiing.

How'd you crack the helmet? Land on the back of your head?

Yep. Got some time to myself from the group so tried to push my speed a bit. Let my skis get too far in front and lost control.

Ouch! I've had a couple of those this season. Still have sore ribs from a crash at Loveland 3 weeks ago. Made a turn onto a slope I hadn't checked out and found myself in a mogul field at 30 MPH :o

Damn--- did you hit something or just falling impact? They say the plastic degrades. Anyway looks like it did it's job, helmets are expendable, heads, not so much.

By the way when the top is open Mass is pretty great I think, a high speed would be cool

Just falling impact. Second weekend using that helmet. Have a 40% off crash replacement discount but of course Bern is sold out at this time in the season. Assume the discount is good long term.

Ya, the quad no. 6 lift to Para Dice/Diamond Jim does take a while to get up there. Like mentioned in the other thread, Mass does have nice compact assortment of everything...especially for kids. The orange skills area even got me in there trying jumps off the edges of the lips. The table top near the bottom was fun enough for me to get a bit of air and fun for the kids. The little moguls at the bottom of the skills area are fun. Actually moguls everywhere. (Need to practice more for those) What is missing in size; makes up in a little bit of everything.

The downhill bike trails were also distracting me on every lift ride. ;) Summer trips all ready planned!
