Today was Perfect North to meet up with PhotoDad2001 to pick up that Burton Alp 7.1. (Oh yes I did BobDea.) I actually rode the Alp for a couple of hours before going back to the Liberation.
While the board review will wait for another day I went back to the Liberation for the larger SCR and the edge hold. While all of Lower/Central Indiana got 6+ inches of snow somehow the PN grooming team turned it into ice??? PN has more steepness than PP and I was really able to let the Liberation fly... it really comes to life at speed. Not sure how I can make that happen at PP.
I drove trough miles of packed powder (must have been a strike on) to find packed powder only to be found in limited stashes at PN.
PN is 400 feet of vertical and 100 acres compared to PP's 300 feet of vertical and 60 acres. But PN is close to large metropolitan areas so it is packed with people. My son has never skied any place but Paoli Peaks and he could not believe the lines. He was aghast.
We had fun and the drive back was much better.
