  • The last day of winter...

    2011-04-10 by Girl Power

    I know it's spring already but today up at WH2O it was still winter. It felt like everyone was there to say their goodbyes. Though the weather was chilled (and snowing), the vibe was warm and fuzzy. Plenty were hittin' the Blast for their last run this season. Others were checkin' their speed in the pass-holders race...

    2011-03-23 by Joe D

    Today and yesterday at Whitewater was fun because I got to hang out with my dad for Spring Break! But what was the most fun was the two different kinds of skis I got to try. Tuesday I rented some skis from the Whitewater rental shop. Mark and Jason got me some Rossignol 74 Auto Carves. They had a bit of rocker tip and tail. They were better than my other old skis that my dad's friend found in the middle of the forest last summer.

    2011-03-01 by Joe D

    Sunday at Whitewater Ski and Board Club was very, very fun because I skied The Blast for my very first time, after camp with my Dad. I was very sad because it was my last day with my coach Jeremy. I have hockey on the next two weekends so I can't be there. Jeremy taught me a lot of things and showed me a lot of new runs I never heard of. I was a little confused sometimes, but now I know the trails, so I can go there and rip it up. The snow on Sunday was very powdery and it was kind of hard to ski in. It was up to my hips. Jeremy took us on Igniter, Nugget two times, Gold Pan, Upper Concentrator Trees, Tram Line and Sluice Box Trees were it was really deep. I liked Whitewater Ski and Board Club. Jeremy was very nice to all of us in the camp. I'd like to go back next year.
