Brighton Powder Day
on December 23, 2008
Well, it happened, the whole mountain is open at Brighton. That's right, from Great Western, all the way over to the slippery slopes of Mt. Millicent; Brighton is all the way open. When I pulled into the parking lot today, Millie was running, but seemingly without any passengers. The lot fellers pointed me over towards Great Western, and I ran up the hill. Probably my favorite part of the day was charging down the face, being a little to confident in my turn, and falling over backwards and sliding down the hill.
That's right. I fell.
I got down to the lift to hear that Millie had just opened. Sweeter words had never passed my ears. After taking the short route across the parking lot, I found 21" of fresh, new, virgin snow waiting for me. Christmas came early.
The ride up Milly was quick. Even after a year, I don't think that I am used to having a high-speed quad over on Milly.
With even more Snow in the forecast, this makes for a great week of skiing.
