Wow we skied lots of big, soft bumps this afternoon at Mad River Glen! The Single Chair and Sunnyside Double lifts carried happy skiers up the hill to swish their way down through the corn snow. The sun was intense. Some people were skiing in t-shirts.

The advanced trails that we skied featured wall-to-wall moguls. The snow has been soft and it has been skied enough to make some rather large bumps. In fact, I fell in a mogul field and the Skimeister didn't know at first because I was well hidden in a trough!

Our favorite runs this afternoon included Fall Line, Creamery, Lynx, Catamount Bowl, Quacky, Ferret and Lower Glade. Skiing bumps works up a thirst and appetite that would later be satisfied at the Prohibition Pig Tasting Room (behind the Prohibition Pig restaurant in Waterbury). Tasty.

I know I've mentioned this before: I'm spoiled rotten. Have you spoiled yourself with some spring skiing lately?
