Hitting the Day 40 Milestone, and Planning to Go for More

By any measure, it has been an epic ski year.

SkiZer logged Day 40 at Crystal Mountain on April 21. The snowpack remains deep — we should be able to climb volcanoes all summer to push the ski-day numbers even higher.

SkiZer set some ski goals last summer, and those have been shattered. On Day 40, SkiZer climbed into the Southback for several laps at Crystal, surpassing the 700,000-vertical-feet mark for the season. Who knows where he’ll end up — it will be fun to find out.
