Oct 31, Paradise, MRNP

For Francine's birthday we made the drive to Paradise and started our ski season!  Day numero uno of the new ski year, with freshies!    Anticipation increased as the snow on the side of the road slowly increased.  By the time we made it to the parking lot there was over two feet of snow along the road.  Coverage was excellent.  One did have to be wary of buried rocks on certain aspects up high.  Made it up to about 7,200 feet then skied back down into the sunshine.  Best ski was off the back of Pan Point, where the wind had not effected the snow.  Perfect start to the season.  Greg you should have got out of bed!
