The snow was soft at the Pollywood resort last week. Having each member of the pack in their own gear brought an unprecedented level of performance, and we cruised up the climbs and hooted down the descents. Strong man "No Skins" Unknown Local was the picture of grace in his scale-less, skin-less AT gear.
And the Knott was very happy to see us before 10:30. So, happy they handed out three aces and a service beer.
This week will be a completely different story.
Looks like we'll get a little under half an inch during ride time. But, with the temperature a steady 46F, the arctic wetsuit won't be necessary.
