No more hiking up the mountain, Moose Mountain is open! Yeah!! They don't have lifts, but they have a bus shuttle system. Pricey resort for what you get but so conveniently close to town. Celine, Debbie and I busted out the downhill skis for the resort's opening weekend, not to mention at a discount ticket rate.Celine hadn't been on downhill skis in 5 years but smoked both Debbie and I. As you can see also, Moose Mountain is in need of about.. umm.. well 15 more inches of snow or so. :-P At least a good 8 inch snowfall would do them some good. Despite all the grassiness we still had a blast. Some areas were completely covered and powdery but the well-used ones like these below were pretty grassy.
I told you the moose pose would come back, especially being on Moose Mountain and all.
Wahooooooo! We even went on some black diamonds, my first Alaskan black diamonds other than the one at Skiland that I slid down on my butt. The ones at MM were actually less scary than east coast ones.. I can't say the same for the one that Josh took me on at Skiland last winter...
