We woke up today with the news that 7 inches (18cm) of fresh snow had fallen in the last 24 hours. In any other situation this would have been amazing, however, as we are used to so much snow, this was just normal. When we arrived at Winter Park we headed straight back to Eagle Wind, where we were skiing yesterday. We did a few runs over here this morning.
It was quite nice. The snow last night had filled most of the tracks from yesterday, and the untracked runs from yesterday were nice and deep. They opened a few extra runs today, compared to yesterday, however there were a lot of people skiing here today, meaning the runs got tracked out pretty quick. Once we couldn't find anymore untracked runs, we headed back over to Parsenn bowl, where the wind blown snow is always fresh.
We did a few runs here, where the top part of the run is really nice, however the bottom part is not so great. We then went back to Mary Jane for lunch. We sat at a table with some nice retired Americans. One of them in particular loved talking to us about Australia and the Tasmanian devil. He also talked to us about his life as an airline pilot, a ski instructor for children with cancer, and skiing throughout the ages. It was a nice way to spend our lunch break! When then went back out and decided to ski the same groomer that we skied yesterday afternoon on Mary Jane.
The fresh snow had mostly gone, so the groomers were the most fun. It was so much fun, skiing fast and in some sort of a rhythm. It was another really fun day, and with only one more day left, great to be on the mountain! We drove back to Granby, and decided to go out and sit in the outdoor hot tub. We were the only ones out there, so it was fun to sit out there on our own. We went and got subway for dinner tonight. We are not spoilt for choice here in Granby, for dinner options, so this seemed the best and most affordable option. We spent the evening mostly trying to organise our stay in New York City. We only have one full day there, along with two half days, so trying to fit everything we want into the small time frame is hard. However, I think we have come up with a plan that will allow us to see most of it, so long as we don't have anymore unexpected delays!! :)
