Yesterday, for the first time in 15 or so years, I went skiing. It was an easy day trip up from DC to Whitetail Resort, and the prices were very reasonable for a weekend all day pass with rental equipment.
The conditions were fair. There was a decent base of (man-made) snow and a perfect blue sky. As it got a little later in the afternoon, I started noticing some icy patches that made it harder for someone like me who has been out of the game for some time.
The lines for the lifts were a little long, but not horrible considering that we were told that this was the busiest day they have seen all season. I would happily go back to this mountain again. I may take a weekday off to do it and avoid some of the crowds, but even with the number of people who were there, I did not feel like it was too bad.
