Happy Birthday DAVE!
We had awoken to rain overnight; I almost turned off the alarm anticipating a leisurely pack-up and drive home. Instead at 6:30am, a light snow was falling in the village. We caught a shuttle over to Sterling and realized the snow was still coming down and had clearly been falling on the higher ranges overnight - freshies! What a great birthday gift.
The lifties were still beating snow off the chairs and waiting for patrol to OK loading - yes, first lift = first tracks = happy Valentines!
The boardy boys disappeared. I love powder snow, but it doesn't always love me.........it's a workout.
After a few runs on Sterling, Caitlin and I managed a couple on Madonna before heading back to the condo to pack.
We were sad to leave the slopes, knowing it'll be at least nine months before we're back on the snow. Headed to 3 Squares Cafe in Vergennes for lunch, our favorite lunch stop........but..........gasp..........it was closed while transitioning to the new location! Thankfully a new suggestion popped up - thank you Waze and Yelp: Bake Shop & Deli in Ferrisburgh - yum!
