Some of the best magic in the world is snow

My favorite time to ski might be spring. The relief from the cold, and the longer days, make spring skiing as carefree as taking a walk in the summer. If the snowpack is really good, I would say spring is best. The corn snow doesn't stick to your boards in above-freezing temperatures, a light sweater is all you need for a top layer, and your form is usually pretty well tuned from the winter. Unless you're talking about skiing directly after a big snow during the heart of winter and making first tracks through snowclad woods, spring skiing is something for which to make time.

Just for the record,--not that I made a visit to Rockwood to verify,---the skiable snowcover left the trails approx. April 6th. Plenty more time to ski in the Adirondacks.

Hoping the Foothills ADK chapter can organize a clean up of the downed limbs in the trails at Rockwood this coming summer or fall.
