As you can see in the provided photographic evidence, it is snowing here at HQ in the Adirondacks right now. What you probably can’t discern however, is the bittersweet twinge I feel as I place my freshly waxed skis outside. I acknowledge the lovely heavily falling snow and snow rock’s urgent message and hustle inside to put on my boots.
It is time for a large dose of the Adirondack Lifestyle Wellness Theory (ALWT): the weather is going downhill fast, and not on skis. By Wednesday the temperature is expected to be 50 degrees accompanied by rain. There is not a great deal of snow on the ground right now but skiing has been good, even in the backcountry. I am sad to say the upcoming warmth may cause a pause in the backcountry ski action unless the rain is followed by a snowstorm.
I don’t have time to complain about Wednesday’s rain on Monday. As regular readers may recall, an integral component of the ALWT is “Carpe Adirondack Diem;” one must be willing to seize the Adirondack moment and ski it. Out I go!
