Ski (AT) 3:53:35  13.5 mi (17:18 / mi) +1701m 12:26 / mi
About 8" of nice new snow in the morning. Lincoln was antsy and he and Jess went for an early lap, I slept in. Left with a new friend Stu who had come to the OH (and, it turns out, is OH-eligible having been on CC in some respect) and just moved east from Utahr.
We went up and took a lap down and it was pretty great. When we got down several things happened. We found Lincoln and Jess. I needed to tape over a blister (and did well, it's now painless and happy and lasted all weekend). And the Wildcat parking lot had filled up, so they were sending people to Pinkham, which was fill, so Pinkham was telling people to go to Wildcat, and there was a traffic jam on Route 16, and some gravity skiers asked me "where does the shuttle leave from" and I laughed and stuck out a thumb and said "that's the only shuttle coming."
But we had parking spaces, so madness, and up we went again. Which was great again. And then down again, a little icier. And then at the bottom we went up again, and then down again, and it was also super-fun, if a bit more scraped off. By this point it was getting windy (and somewhat blown in in places and off in others). After three laps Lincoln and Jess were ready to go home, abandoning our Saalt dinner plans.

But it was only 1:30. So I had to figure out lunch (Pinkham lunch, first time I've ever paid for it) and then skiing. I could have gone and bored myself at Great Glen with Kikkan (and 8000 other people, probably, although I should have texted Kikkan and suggested she have dinner at Saalt, but figured she had plans). Also I'd rather give cash money to Jackson than the Auto Road.
So, down to Jackson. And it was pretty late, but I got changed and after a to of classic and some weird hand tendonitis/cramping (that seems to be getting better) I did a lap-plus of the wave and it was superb. Just had a lot of fun. Very enjoyable. Skied until dusk, then tired decided that I'd rather head up to Saalt than go to Grants and try to figure out dinner. Because I have a job, and a cheap place to stay, and can pay $30 for dinner, and it was very worthwhile.
