From the eyes of Gazette editor Joanna Bean:
1. The parking lot is full but the slopes are deserted. The patio at the base lodge? It's packed.
2. The lift attendants are crabby. Or giddy.
3. On the drive home you see kayakers pulling out of the river.
4. The sun is still overhead while you're soaking in the creek-side pools at Mt. Princeton - even though you caught the last chair up at Monarch.
