Ski Day 7: In and out, up and down

Vert: 6,130 m    YTD cum vert: 28,860 m
Runs: 17    YTD cum runs: 83

The day started off sunny and a bit warmer than yesterday.
Middle World Cup Downhill
But clouds rolled in as the day progressed...
Cirrus and lenticulars to start
...then it pretty much socked in just after lunch with high clouds that did a real number on the viz.

So while we spent the morning playing in the powder that still remained from Sunday's night's snowfall, we spent the afternoon down low having fun at Wawa crashing trees and at Standish crashing moguls on shorter runs. My rule of thumb is that every mogul run I do takes at least 2 runs off my run count for the day, and at this early point in the season, it's more like 3 or 4. So we didn't stay long. It did however start to clear up about 3:30.
