PCMR Easter Egg HuntOh Dang! The end is near. April started out strong but our slopes were no match for an August-like sun. We had two of the best powder days of the year in the first week of the month and now it is 60 degrees. Boo hoo. And so it ends.

Lou Batori at 103

I’m not sure if I’ve ever stood next to someone 103-years-old, let alone ski with someone that age. I fixed that omission Sunday at Crystal Mountain, when I got to ski with centenarian Lou Batori, very likely the oldest living skier in the world.
