Thin but solid cover

Mohonk Jan. 20

Beautiful day today- cool but sunny, and a slight breeze. Mohonk groomed but the base was too thin for making tracks. You could sometimes feel solid ground with pole tips but not with the ski bases unless you took a digger or went off-piste. I suspect it was much the same on Upper Awosting at Minnewaska, and at High Point.

If I could pick any option I’d be heading north for a nice midweek stay-and-ski. All that snow up there and nobody on vacation! But you get what you get and you don’t get upset.
