This will sound like a broken record after yesterday's posting. Today I led a ski trip for Schenectady ADK, back to Partridge Run, which I had scouted for this trip just yesterday. It was hard for some to believe that with bare grass in the valley there could be any local skiing possible. A group of 8 believers headed up to Partridge Run, elevation 1800-2000'. and found excellent skiing. We skied the same 4.7-mile loop I skied yesterday, and today it seemed even better. The snow was a little cooler and less soggy, almost powdery in spots. And with 8 people laying down tracks, the trail just got better and better. I've now skied on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this week, after also hiking last Saturday. Gotta love retired life!
