Remember yesterday in my Whiteface post when I mused that the warm-ish and drizzly weather we were experiencing at home would translate into “comfortable conditions on the mountain”? HA! I am such a hopeless optimist.
Last week’s downhill outing was such a success that we’re heading to Whiteface today. Lift tickets are only $35 – more than half off of their regular price – so we decided to give it a go before the season ends.
It looks innocent now, vulnerable and exposed, its tough gravel skin gone after months of snow plow abuse. But throw on a dusting of snow, sub-zero temperatures, and a non-AWD vehicle and that thing becomes lethal.
