[quote][quote][quote][quote]Went for a hike up Mt Beacon this morning - felt more like April 1st than Jan 1st - Watched an old Warren Miller DVD last night but thats about as close as I got to the real thing.


Rick , is Mt Beacon Dutchess?

That Dutchess is quite the hike [/quote]

Yes it is and yeah it's a good steep hike. No partying for the wife and I last night so we got a good workout and made the summit by 10 am.

Joshua, I leaned to ski at Dutchess back in the 60's and I didn't know of anything on Mt beacon other than Dutchess and the incline railway which serviced the casino at the summit way back when. [/quote]

So Rick, basically you did a lost(Nelsap) Dutchess hike without inviting any of your fellow SJers?

[/quote]

Yeah sorry about that. It was just a spur of the moment thing with the wife.

I would love to do a SJ trip up there sometime, as there are a number of old Dutchess remains still showing even though it's been lost for over three decades.[/quote]

Rick just joking of course. Rick Bolger had clarified previous that Mt Beacon was a small ski area very near Dutchess but separate. Skirick I take it you saw our hike report from Dutchess Labor day wkend with pics posted by Mapnut, Trackbiker and njbabe. It is a great hike and with the remnants of the ski area and incline rail was fantastic.

Btw, if my wife was into hiking I woulda spent the day w her alone like you did!

Please let me know if you read this post. I haven't skied this season and in fact haven't skied in almost 4 years!!! 5 years ago almost to the day, I was hit from behind by a snowboarder. He clipped my previously injured right leg and injured it badly. I have not fully recovered from the injury and probably won't, but I suspect it won't be as painful when skiing as it has while doing other things. I have been windsurfing, bicycling and walking for activity since spending Nov. to May in Florida. However, the windsurfing and ice hockey I have played has wreaked havoc on my rotator cuffs. I now wonder how I'll do cross-country skiing. Consequently, I am looking forward to downhill skiing. After being a serious bump skier, I can't ski bumps due to old, stressed and weak knees, but I believe I will be able to enjoy downhill skiing still. It's the driving, cold and cost of travel, however, that keeps me from going North from Cape Cod. I'm hoping for a snowy February.

No skiing for me. Sort of hard to do in Hawaii but the water is warm and the surfing is good.

justloafing, I thought there was skiing on the big island on one of those volcanoes. Some years, I read somewhere, they have more than 1,000 vertical feet of skiable snow.

Bill, yes there is skiing there. However, they use private 4-wheelers to do it. As a windsurfer I considered moving to Hawaii and checked it out. I think if you are a millionaire who can afford to fly from Island to Island at your whim and have a Jeep on the big island, you would be skiing for about three weeks a year on the average and surfing the rest of the time.

Finally got my boots on a ski hill today.....1/2 day at Wachusett Mountain

Ski on ski off as usual for weekday. Conifer, 10th and Ralph's were loose granular, a bit sketchy in spots but well covered. Hitchcock(my fav trail at wa) and Challenger were true packed powder bliss, high whales to glide over and not a slipped edge to be found anywhere. Fantastic!

Our original plan had been either Catamount, Butternut or Berkshire East but that trip had to be scrubbed. A great half day of skiing.

Smith looks almost ready to groom and it appeared that Look Ma was being prepared to open tonight.

Now the bad....

$53 midweek....yep you read that right! I love Wa but that is way off the mark......the $5 back at 12:30 helps a wee bit but even $48....wow what is our sport coming too?

Equally bad it appears Honey Dew on 146 S is closing. No jelly stick on the way home. The end of an era

Finally 4 days. Dec 30,31 Jan 1 & 2 at Whiteface. First 3 days spring like slush. Mon 1/2 firmed up and not bad, but not in ski shape yet, so took it real easy.
