Although the smell of fried food from the Village was alluring, we continued up Rock Isle Road to the ski area boundary. It is really a shame that on this day, despite mild temperatures and calm winds, the sky was overcast with snow flurries. Consequently, we had limited visibility and did not venture far beyond the ski area boundary. We stopped for lunch in a snow hollow beside some trees overlooking Rock Isle Lake and were amazed that we could enjoy some peace and quiet even this short distance away from the ski area.
After lunch, we headed back to the ski area and made a quick pit stop at
the Village before continuing uneventfully down the ski-out to the
parking lot. A lengthy search for my car ensued.
