  1. GPS app?

    Ski Tracks does have maps
  2. GPS app?

    Out for a couple of hours this morning, 34 degrees, soft but nicely groomed snow, flat light. Not too crowded. Challenge glade was mashed potatoie, need some boarders to go down and smooth it out. Apparently Navionics is discontinuing their ski gps app, any recommendations? Ski tracks is nice but doesn't have a map. Snow Trace has a map, but not a replay function.

    5 runs at Jackson Hole maybe, 17 runs at Frost. 7 minutes up East Mountain, 90 seconds down. 8200 vertical, equivalent of 3 runs top to bottom at Whiteface. We take what we can get.

    Huge crowd at the ticket booth on the way out.

    Great morning at Frost, 24 degrees when I arrived, 44 when I left at 10:30. Hit east mountain right at 8, pretty quiet for an hour or so, with just some red and brown coats. Everything open today. Some nice frozen cord, Floyd's and Rivershot were in great shape, the groomers did a fantastic job with this week's weather, not pristine, but still very good conditions. About 9:30 it started getting busy, so I did a couple runs of Challenge glade (headwalls pretty bumped up, but the lower tree section was very manageable), and lapped Challenge and Tbolt until the crowds and ball bearings built up.

    One bad thing about Jack Frost is the need to stop at the top of the east mountain headwalls to check if it is clear. Fortunately you can check the slope out on the way up to see if it is likely that rentals are traversing the slopes.

    Had a family of fairly good skiers from the Poconos get in trouble at Loon 15-20 years ago. The dad crashed on a icy closed slope after a rain/freeze event (a lawsuit claimed that the method of closing was inadequate). The daughter and son-in-law took their skis off to get him. Father and daughter died, son-in-law had a concussion.

    So much depends when demoing on the tune. If they sharpen the side edge, and don't polish the bottom edge, they can develop a hanging burr that will tend to have the ski rail (get stuck going straight or catch an edge). Also, if you are used to a ski with a detuned tip and tail they can also be hard to initiate a turn and tend to catch edges. If they don't have the right wax, the skis can feel like slugs. My daughter would ski with us, but got into soccer, and that got to be an all year thing.

    The race team seemed to be having fun on it.
  12. Sunday 1/21

    One of those days I wished I switched over to Blue. Conditions were good, but there was a race on Challenge, so it and the glade was closed. Got to east mountain right at eight and found Already closed for the race team practice. Skied River Shot until they started the second lift about 9:30, then with both lifts feeding one slope it became downright dangerous. The only other black slope, t-bolt, was packed too. Decided to call it a day. On a brighter note, my new Bluetooth tunes controller seems to work better than my old Square Jellyfish. Had to put some gel epoxy on the buttons so it would work with my gloves.

    No coats or gloves, the table is open for use. JF did remove one bin near the cafe for gear, but they do have a free bag check in area.

    When you hit 65, it takes a little longer. Plus I had some surgery in November to fix a legacy of the old raft guiding days. Feels good to get out.
