2A — PATENT TRADER Saturday, Dec. 2, 1972 WEEKEND SKIER BY DAN MARGULIES Before you get the thermals on The sun wasn't up and it was pouring rain, but that doesn't stop a real skier from getting up and into three layers of clothes. Who needs ski reports when the slopes opened weeks ago? Last Sunday I was all set to start out in the rain, sure that it was snow further north, when good sense took hold. \Is this stuff rain or snow up there?\ I asked. \For the last six hours it's been rain, and it's not getting any colder,\ came the reply. A detailed check proved it was snowing in Maine. Tragedy for a day tripper. But slope owners were ob­ viously undaunted. Several had called the ski information center to report things like \10 to 40 inch base, corn con­ ditions.\ 'IT'S CORTINA VIA THE THRUWAY\ Beginners f( and pros' * Zm /Z^ alike warm to th e ' ^0' * continental atmosphere of the Villaggio - the unique luxury resort in Green County.

Open 10:30 - 5:00 phone 764-5992 \Corn\ is a ski industry euphemism for wet snow, and a common report in the spring. During a heavy late fall rain it means slush. Very sticky stuff. Local ski shops will have condition reports later in the season. For the real early bird a call to Ellis Ski Information, a slope' funded operation for northeastern areas, is in order. The New York number is 925- 7724. You can also call 800-243- 3520 toll free, but the line is very busy. One mountain that deserves some business is Glen Ellen in Waitsfield, Vt. This area is leading the way to the future by knocking down last year's lift ticket prices by $1. Weekend day tickets go from $10 to $9 and weekday tickets are down to $7.

It -has been surprising motorists and eyeing skiers strangely. The theory is that a female would bring it out of the woods. For the beginner, Mt.
