All in all, the weekend was still a blast, regardless of the amount of suck that happened on the slopes. Most of our group beat themselves up on the mountain pretty badly, including myself, but I still managed to be one of the die-hard three who kept at it the longest. I probably shouldn't have, though, because I pulled a muscle in my shoulder during one of the falls that I took on Saturday. I'll be making an appointment with a doctor after this post to get it checked out, 'cause it's really painful to lift my right arm.
During the road trip, both up and back, we stopped at a place called "Maine Diner" for a late lunch/early dinner. On the way up, I ordered a cup of clam chowder (New England) and salmon pie. Both were top notch. On the way back, I ordered the homemade crab cake sandwich, which was also very good. If you're ever in Wells, Maine, check the place out.
Other highlights of the trip included:
- A "Pray for Snow" party on Saturday night at "The Foggy Goggle", which included a bon fire, lots of drunken ski/snowboard enthusiasts, and a leisurely snowball fight. The party and the praying must have worked to some extent since the mountain received up to 4 inches of natural snow that night. :)
- Prime rib special at a place called Liam's. Good people, good food, very nice bar, and inexpensive, tasty prime rib.
- Dinner at Matterhorn Ski Bar where we shared some garlic knots and three, very tasty pizzas: Weisshorn, Alphorn, and Hornlihutte.
