    Last time I skied Beech with over 20" of fresh the place was deserted in the morning. There wasn't even a liftee at the base of the quad. Ski patrols took turns watching the shut off button while we skied laps of self service lift rides. The early morning drive up was pretty sketchy but the Forester with good tires got me there. This one's setting up like it will lay a bunch if ice through the middle of the state. Best to book a place up there and get there a day before it hits. Saving my ski pennies for a scout troop trip first weekend of Feb or Laurel Mountain gathering the same weekend.

    They are flat out killing it, skied there yesterday in very nice packed powder/machine groomed conditions again. I lost count around 30 new TITan ducted fan snow guns and probably more of the up graded stick guns. Several more slopes looked ready to push out and be opened. If they open Cuppy and Lower Shays it will be the first time in 10 years they have done so this early.

    Somebody had a good day today up in Boone/Blowing Rock/Banner Elk. Looked outside around 4am to see about 4-5 inches on the deck. Power went out around 8. There was about 8-10 inches by then. Teens went out to play in it, took the dog for a little while. I fired up the grill to fry up chili components and then mixed them up in a pot. Knocked the snow piling up off the out buildings, one gazebo canopy collapsed before I got to it.
    We got another 3-4 inches after I tool this photo. It turned to rain/freezing rain by about noon. So, there was a short window of goods before it turned to cement. Folks who had lodging up at or very near a ski hill won the lottery this morning. No doubt they groomed it all down pretty much immediately though so it will last through the holidays.

    Never get tired of getting to knock this off my ski car. Too bad this time it wasn't where there was any skiing.



    I will click on to some snow blades or my tele rig tonight and hit the neighborhood hills under the moon. Which I pick will depend on how much the rain washes away. Oh, and I'm already sore as hell from shoveling the driveway, front porch, and back deck.

    Had a good day at the Shoe, except for getting stuck on Powder monkey lift for 25 minutes near the top in the wind tunnel zone.

    Cupp and upper Shays were open with killer packed pow and plenty of loose down both sides. Snowed at least 4" while I was there and still dumping when I left. Hooked up with the Valley crew and eventually found my buddy and his daughter for several runs to finish out the day.

    Saw about 6 cars in the ditch coming down the mtn to Cass.

    Currently stuck at Wintergreen. About 10" of snow and still falling. Conditions were pretty solid today, but they only opened up two trails. Should be a great base for the season, though, especially if it freezes over this week.

    Dunno, never made it off the mountain. I81 was closed for a bit, according to Google maps.

    cat is, as you probably know, 100% open incl meadows. Lapped it exclusively monday but Steezus christ. the lift line picked up steady 11-ish and by 11:30 rivaled a holliday. Which i guess it was with the school cancellations. by 1:00 PM it was ridceoulous. 9-11 AM was pretty sweet though. Very heavy snow marks the third time I caught the meadows open since...gulp...1976...

    I've only skied Cat one weekend, spending most of that time carrying around 4 and 5 year olds. It did get crazy around noon Saturday. I went back Sunday morning, post ice storm and skied death cookies all by myself all morning. Ya, those low grade glades did look like they'd be fun on a snow day.
