Breakdown: It is a nice warm morning here in Summit with cloud cover. The snow is soft and the groomers are excellent. There is even a bit of wind depositing and buff. The snow is soft enough everywhere to rip. There are a lot of avalanche bombs going off as patrol attempts to stabilize after the flux in temp and it is interesting to note how much louder they are without fresh snow to absorb the sound.
Sunday Skool: Yesterday Joe Franklin passed away at 88. Franklin was who most credit with inventing the position of TV host. His show aired from the 1950s until 1993 and he embodied NY city and the time and shaped the world of tv broadcast.
