Did anyone else play this computer game as a child?
My sister and I used to be obsessed with it.
I'm back in good ole' MD after a weekend of skiing up at Camelback Resort in the Pocono Mountains. I must admit, the mountain greatly exceeded my expectations.
I tried to keep expectations fairly neutral as far as trails/snow goes, as many people have warned me since moving out here that East Coast skiing is a lot different than Rocky Mountain skiing.
The snow was definitely heavier - it was in the mid-thirties on Saturday, and misting/foggy the entire way. Praise the Lord for waterproof winter gear. Our outer shells were soaked, but for the most part we stayed dry on the inside.
And it's what on the inside that counts, right?!
The mountain offered a fantastic amount of trails for all different levels, and a few of us even ventured over to the moguls to try our luck.
I only fell twice, which in my book is a success.
This was also my first time night skiing - the entire mountain was lit - which was a whole different kind of experience. In short, it was pretty thrilling to be flying down trails at night.

Our 4 pm refueling sesh before heading back out that night involved this:
|a HUGE mountain of nachos. heaven.|
Overall it was a great time, and I'm so glad we went. The house we stayed in was super cute, we were in great company, and our back porch had a beautiful view of the mountain. I also brought back some sexy wind-burnt cheeks that make me kind of look like a clown.

Anyone else have any great East Coast skiing experiences? Next on my bucket list is to try something up in Vermont...
