2019 May 1, (only kind of a) Grooming Report;  

With apologies to Thomas Stearns and the entire Eliot family, only a dark grooming report writer can see April as cruel.  Sure, I get it; ski season has to end to bring life to the trout opener, water skiing, mtn biking, trail running, road cycling, sailing and the myriad of summer things you don’t want to do.  I have to look back to see if London had an especially dark April in ’22.  You know, like how the year of no summer produced Mary Shelly’s masterpiece, The Modern Prometheus. No, I am more of a “I have 50% too much glass” kind of grooming report writer to see the sad in endings regardless the season.  Anyway, ski season is ending.  So, you get to see some action pictures with a beautiful native trout.  Please note, no fish were harmed in the filming of the grooming report; all were gently released with care.

And now we are in the silly season and the Last Ski of the Season competition is in high gear.  Unless we get a Mother’s day storm, this weekend could be the swan song.  Please see Gail’s pictures from last week. The thaw put a real hurt on the base so getting to Forestville looks problematic.  However, skiers in categories of  most “k”, best costume and photo originality will win fabulous prizes (to be announced under separate cover).  Please do let us know what you find.  There are procrastinators that are still looking for an excuse to avoid using their storage wax.
