Some Like It Wet

Remember how we had to ski just ot get out of the Knot Lot last week?

And we laughed at the rain, because after you've rolled around in soggy snow a few times, who cares about rain?
What a difference a week makes. The snow is gone. In its place will be puddles and wet soil, if not little streams running down the trails. Once again, the forecast promises cold, heavy rain. Of course, conditions are usually much better during ride time than what's forecasted.

But if you like conditions as sloppy as an over-sauced, blown out taco that was made with meat from the bottom of the pot, then don't miss this Tuesday.

Stick Night

Its been 305 Tuesdays since the last FTSki. Once again, B opened his equipment locker and found 4 sets of skis and boots.

Fro distinguished himself as a natural. We crushed through heavy, wet snow all the way up part of the Qualifier. 

 Cappy distinguished himself by requesting to switch from fat skis to skinny skis at the top of the climb. A short way into the descent he cursed the skinny skis and requested to switch back.

No sooner than the switched boots were laced up, he requested to switch back.

 We went straight into the Knott, and celebrated our successful adventure.

Which included awarding the best attendance for 2016 shirt.
