3/4 of the Wednesday night crew (no Ken) made our March debut yesterday. We free skied lake Goodwin with special guest Dr Stacey. Air temp mid 40’s water temp low 40’s. Water conditions varied throughout the afternoon with it being flat enough for Doug to do some long line footin to some mild chop. All in all another great day on the water skiing with friends! Went to @Rednucleus house afterwards for drinks, appetizers and dinner. Thanks Loni for the lasagna and ice cream pie. Next week another new lake adventure stay tuned

    @lpskier my skinny skis are skinnier than yours.... and definitely don’t carve. 😬

    @lpskier A free heeled! Rare these days, I’ve seen some terrific tele skiers at Alta.

    @cougfan i did today.... after a 52 day off. Run 5/6 -28s, felt like I was going to die, trying to get on the platform was to much work but it was so much fun skiing again... made my day!

    I'm with @skibrain. Even have the same skis. Gotta get out early though these days. Way too warm otherwise.

    @skibrain Ditto. @tjs1295 not sure where you are but where I am now it's 11 degrees with a forecast high of 16. But 50 by mid week. Tons of snow so the skiing is still good and will be for a while.

    @adkh2oskier 👍 I’m in Minnesota. Likely another 4-5 weeks before ice out.

    @adkh2oskier I’m in northern Wisconsin. Been skiing mostly around Eagle River. Run over to Ironwood, MI every now and then. Still plenty of snow, but not always groomed the best after the thaw/freeze cycles we’ve been having.

    Windy & cold at HT this morning. Couldn't make it past 4 ball - but better than sitting on the couch! @RichardDoane the new passenger seat is very nice, but where did you hide the seat heater button?

    @Rednucleus I asked Gordon if he wanted the $500 seat heater upgrade, and he laughed.

    Should have asked the winter ski crew to make a donation!
  • cougfancougfan Posts: 327 Crazy Baller
    @Rednucleus maybe you should visit a motorcycle dealer and invest in some of the heated gear they sell so you can make it through the winter ski season😊😂😉 I know how you hate to be cold

    The snow is starting to melt in MA, but there is still plenty for some "footing"!

    March 6th, outside of Omaha Nebraska. Air 66, Water 43ish. It was awesome getting back out!
    Lake was clear of ice, and just a little left in the ramp cove.

    @skibrain Minnesota & @tjs1295 N Wisconsin. Probably similar temps to Adirondacks in N NY. Different tool for different skiing. Yesterday on hill and had to check out the lake. And @ReallyGottaSki , looks like the top of Wildcat?

    I did ski in Utah!

    Second pic is the lake at my cottage. Still too solid for skiing but not too soft for ice sailing!
