Snowmaking started at Giants Ridge in the evening of November 16th, 2007.
After a full 24 hours of snowmaking, I couldn't wait any longer to get out
on the slopes. Of course, this meant I had to hike up the mountain in ski
boots carrying my skis; the chairlifts would not be turned on for another
two weeks. It's quite a hike, but well worth it to be the first one down.
After snapping off a couple pictures at the top of Sarajevo, I headed
down. Only about 50 feet down the first steep, my right ski found a rock
and ejected, leaving me riding just one, on my left foot. It took my
another 50 feet to slow to a stop so I could climb back up and retrieve the
right ski. After that it was a relatively smooth ride, so I again took out
my phone for a little video.
Snow was being made actively on Sarajevo while I was skiing it, so I was
pretty well coated in the stuff by the end of the run.
