Chilly skimming, fabulous Sunday
Updated: April 16, 2015 - 3:16 pm

At long last it appears that spring has arrived, and on Sunday the warming season was in full bloom. Whether you gauge spring’s presence by corn snow, warm sunshine or the presence of literally dozens of barbecues scattered across the parking lots from A to D, there was no question whatsoever that it had all come together at last. It is springtime on Mansfield.

Postseason thrives on Big Spruce, east coast
Updated: April 02, 2015 - 3:38 pm

While regular season races have wrapped up for all age groups, a number of older racers from U14 (12-13 years old) and above moved on to important postseason races on both sides of the border. This included Canadian American Championships (or Can Ams) for U14s and U16s (15-16 years old), US Nationals for U18s (16-17 years old) and older, and Eastern Cup Finals for older age groups. For those who still wanted to stay fresh before this weekend’s Sugar Slalom on Spruce, there were a number of close-by USSA races to tune the skills.

Seems like the lion just had the lamb for lunch
Updated: April 02, 2015 - 4:08 pm

There is an old saying about March, “In like a lion and out like a lamb.” Well this year as snow filtered down on the final day of the month, it seems like the lion just had the lamb for lunch, and what a tasty snack it was. It has continued to be the “un-spring,” with still more of that fresh, cold, dry powder to prove it. The stake has hit 90 inches and Easter is just a few days away. The gondola will close down this weekend and still there is no end in sight for this very entertaining winter.

1969 World Cup drama
Updated: April 02, 2015 - 4:26 pm

Greetings from Oregon, although by the time you read this I will be in Utah. We landed in Portland, where spring is literally in full bloom! Temperatures in the 60s and trees flowering everywhere were a shock to our systems after the winter we’ve had. This winter the Northwest has been the yang to our yin in terms of weather. There, it’s been much warmer than normal and received significantly less snow than normal. We skied Mt. Bachelor in central Oregon, which did have reasonable cover, but we passed several ski areas that were closed for lack of snow. There’s nothing sadder than brown slopes in what normally is the middle of winter.
