Amanda and I both planned to take today off and turn this into a four day weekend for the sole purpose of going skiing. Planning ahead for a ski day is always tricky since you never know what the weather is going to be like, but today worked out perfectly. First, the weather was the best we’ve had in probably a month. Upper 30s, clear, solid base and good snow out at Kissing Bridge.
The second cool part was that while I was flipping through the Hamburg Sun yesterday, I saw that as part of Hamburg’s Winterfest, the town was offering $25 full day lift tickets for today through Thursday. Since the whole week is considered a holiday, that makes the cost almost half price. That worked out well for us because both of us were pretty much exhausted after half a day. This is the good part about winter in Buffalo.
