They dedicated the show to "Hoot" who tragically died earlier in the week. There was a memorial service earlier that evening...

I can't recall how many times I yo-yo'd on 9. But I held a solid 20 minute cycle time. Had lunch with Steve at Chair-8, then back to work...
Way too many skiers in Mammoth...
Last run of the day, you can see Cyndi's house opposite the school...

A few passes down Plunge and then lunch at Allreds, which seldom sucks. Bummer news was that tickets for the Dark Star Orchestra on Tuesday night had sold out, and I really wanted to go. "Who's got my extra?"
The sun came out and I continued to struggle; but it was a fun struggle. All I wanted was one sweet pass on Plunge, hard skiers right, where every turn was a perfect tele-god-goddess turn. It wasn't to be.

I met Amy of New Hampshire this morning at Restore Our World, while on a quest for coffee and carbs. This got me thinking that I need some way to capture the dining experiences here during my stay.
BluePoint (Thursday 3/23)
“I wish to transcend space and time”
221 (Friday 3/24)
Shep's suspicion that Jefferson Airplane's "Today" is in D-Dorian is probably correct.
Cosmo (Saturday 3/25) * Mark had a cool apres' ski party at the Barrio. Then we found our way over to Cosmo for another fine dinner.
Honga’s (Sunday 3/26) * The usual sushi deal. No spicy tuna, bummer.
Allreds (Monday 3/27) * $60 for drinks, and god-knows-what dinner costs; but the food is good and when you ride the gondola back into town the approach is priceless.

Then Bushwacker, Plunge, skied to TelSKi to investigate the Waterville Valley Threedom Pass SCAM. Had lunch. Then 4 to 5 to Palmyra. Then over to 6 and back to 9. Me plunge; Steve and Cyndi into joint point and Mammoth. Repeat a few times with Mark.

I drove over to Dube's pond yesterday, because the temp was up in the 50's and the March sun was strong. Still ice on the course. A little open water by the dam. It's just not time yet.
