Headed for the slopes, my friends
I am off to the slopes of West Virginia! Will be back on Sunday.
See you all later!
I just got back. It snowed, the temp was bellow 10 fahrenheit ( - 12.2 celsius), and it was windy. Despite those murderous conditions, I had fun!
A couple of words about the slopes. First, they are called "Timberline". For those of you who have been to Farayya in Lebanon, a good comparison would be Junction! I basically snowboarded on one hill that was maybe twice as wide as Junction and 1.5 times as high.
What I found really cool though, was that people skied and snowboarded on 6 or 7 paths that were cut through the forest which covers the hill. So I had really tall and dense forest on either side of me all the time. That experience was both new and fun.
Cool Stuff! Definitely not Lake Taho nor even Farrayya... but, cool stuff!
Now, back to the grind!
