Thanks to Greg “Daddy-O Santa Claus” Goodman, I have a brand new helmet cam with which to record my Alpine Exploits. The day held little promise, with a snow report of “Machine Groomed/Frozen Granular” (translation: pulverized ice, except where it’s just sheets of ice), but as I say, Any Skiing Is Better Than No Skiing, and off I went. I was happy to find that the snow report had lied to us. Unlike everyone else’s snow report, which lies to make conditions look better than they really are, the Mount Snow report today lied and promised shitty conditions, while the mountain actually delivered great ones.
The expectation: Ice
The reality: Packed powder and nice soft loose crud.
So here, brought to you courtesy of Daddy-O Goodman*, is a short ski vacation.

A late edit. It is astonishing how the videos make it look like I was skiing on slightly angled football fields. Thus, here is a photograph of the main face with the trail from the first video pointed out in red.
