Whiteface March 6th, 2020

Symmetric, and short. Season started (Spring 2019) and ended (?) at Whiteface.

No camping,so I left Clifton Park late and drove Rt 9

While everyone is sheltering in place, I’m out in the driveway praying for feet of Snow. It’s post Virus hell, so I’m catching up.

I was thrilled to be on top by noon

I go back to this place that is special to many other people, many have reasons to call “Lake Placid” special.

When you come, bring lots of wool and poly. Skiing in slush in 40 year old pants was fun!

Wilmington NYs own Olympic mountain ended up being my last stop for the llly before my name for it”Covid911”

One thought on “Whiteface March 6th, 2020

  1. take acid lake placid is very special for this upstate N.Y. skier. In 1980 I took my Dad to the finals of the 4 man bobsled competition at Mt. Van Hovvenburg. It was not his first time at the Olympics there in that quaint town.
    My Grandfather had taken him in 1932.
    Dad wore his official Olympic overcoat to these 1980 games which his father had bought him as a 16 year old boy.
    It is a special spot for me indeed.
