If you aren’t aware, we like mathematical equations that involve powder and schuss here at FIS. This afternoon we discovered yet another one: Sun+Powder=Treat. In particular, sunny skies and powder do not equal a trick.

The best part? Full size candy bars. No no, just kidding. The best part is that there’s more on the way Saturday night.
more on the way saturday night! Yee HA!

more on the way Saturday Night!

Until then we’re just enjoying the beautiful sights of winter in October.

      Do the extra set of poles provide additional buoyancy as well?

      Indeed good sir!

      If you can get out Sunday… You won’t have missed much. Snow’s tough. If the storm falls right though, Sunday could be epic.

    Good stuff Greg! Looks like a fun day. I was stuck here in Worcrester without my skis… I knew I should have brought them back when I was home in October for a few days, but the 70 degree weather said otherwise, haha.
