Next picture skiing in the Rockys.
The snow is returning to Chicago and it seems that this time generously. The forecast changed to more snow in the last 24 hours so now it's pretty exciting.
Windguru is the most optimistic
FNMOC does not predict so much
The situation right now is this:
Storm coming from the SW and arriving by this afternoon.
The temperatures will increase a little bit so, it'll probably start with rain and then switch to snow.
Last weekend we went skiing to Wisconsin. The ski resorts were quite different from what I am used to. Maximum height was 300 meters, but the bottom was at 200 meters. Besides I think it was the first time I was skiing without my own equipment.
The first day we went to Alpine Valley. The snow was spring quality and it was super crowded. The skis I rented were very old, they didn't have carving and they were extremely light, so I felt like a juggler in the snow. :-)
The second day we went to Devil's Head. It was much nicer, and we were almost alone! The skis were much better but the snow this time was quite icy. Anyway, second day was by far much better than the first one.
Pictures from the first day:
Nishanth and Daniel
Second day: Evelina didn't join us :(
