Day 1, Season 7

Preparations and Patrol Refresher aside, today was day 1 of my 7th season. The forecast was for sunny skies and a relatively warm day -- in the mid to low 30s. It was mostly cloudy from home all the way up the Mountain Road, until, near the Resort, there was a hole in the clouds just above Mt. Mansfield. I couldn't take a photo while I was driving, but here's the shot about 20 minutes later, followed by photo highlights of my day: Waiting to Line Check the Alpine Lift, 8:20 a.m. @ Stowe Mountain Resort
