A great day on Hodges today! Had a group of 6 in from Marystown who were looking for one thing….play! My new riding buddy Keith was with us as well. It was pretty cold here last night and never warmed up today. In fact it snowed pretty steadily all day. Most areas into the higher area saw about 4 inches. The result was harder than prefered conditions. Not ice by any stretch but just not soft. The good thing about it was that we could go anywhere. That is until we got to the North East side of the hill which is usually the lee side. Here there was plenty soft snow and with that….lots of stucks. Keith and I found a new line that brought us up to the base of a the cliff on a steep slope and down the other side. It was nice! I am taking the same group in tomorrow and its is going to be an awesome day with 16 degrees in the forecast! I fear the warm temps the next couple days might cut us off from the snow though. If it like the past 7 years since I have been doing tours up there, our season ended abruptly around the 20th of April with a slew of extremely warm days that cut us off. I hope not! We are heading to the Gaff on Monday.
