    Liberty was surprisingly uncrowded until around 11. They had Lower Strata au naturale, which was nice, but there are definitely rocks lurking (same was true of White Lightning, which I think they closed later on). There were also a number of people poaching liftlines, which didn't seem to make Ski Patrol too happy at first, but they kinda seemed to give up on enforcing it.

    The snow actually allowed them to open up 100% of the trails for the morning, even though the terrain parks weren't fully ready yet. I was surprised to see that Whitetail didn't push much new terrain online today, which made me glad I'd ended up at Liberty instead...

    What did you expect? There is not enough $$$$ in the world for me to go near that place on a weekend. My buddies on SP there earn their greenstamps!

    Heading that way today(Monday).

    I earned some fresh pow turns Saturday at the local high school while my driver dug out his truck and then skied at whitetail Sunday. I met one guy from here eying my BRO's in the ski rack. I think he said his alias was Goose?

    That is a pretty cool GPS map, I went to Deerbutt Monday. Thinking most folks back to work and school, boy was I wrong. I did get some much needed exercise and skied with some friends. Had to pull the rip cord around 2ish as all schools were out for xmas break and the federal workers were off for the day.

    Hell...if there's going to be a Mid-Atlantic rollcall thread, why not just keep bumping it for the season to meet up with other mags.

    Anyone interested in skiing Whitetail or Liberty tomorrow night? I'll drive, but I can't escape work until 3:30 or so.

    I could be. I'll get into DC Wednesday night and just have to make sure I can extricate myself from family.

    Damn Midlantic Mags, if you want a role call you got to keep this alive.
    I hit Whitetail today for the first time in 12 years. I've never seen the whole place open. I skied the trees no less. It was more comedy with 2 parts bushwacking, but it was the principle.

    Sunday morning I'm visiting Ski Liberty for my first visit in a decade. It's 100% open (has that EVER happened?) Last stop before I head back north.

    Same description as before:

    welll, they didn't open it until after lunch, when they turned off the guns, and then just the bottom, no headwall. Fun cruddy soft snow to play in though, good times until the light got flat around 2ish.

    oh yeah, usually Yellow jacket, gray pants, on tele.

    Hey Shreds, sorry I'll miss you guys at Liberty. I hope this rain doesn't ice things up too much for Sunday.

    I've gone touring a couple of times in the last two days from My parents house up and down the powerline right of way in suburban MoCo. Wasn't really downhill - I never took my skins off or locked my heels, but crazy sensation to be able to do that here (in soft snow and never strike bottom)

    I was thinking as I drove past this on my way to Whitetail the other day... What might be the sickest descent around MoCo MD (if even possible?) next time there is a serious dump:

    deerbutt vid

    ski area vid, kind of a test for using the chest harness on the new HD Gopro, much easier to manipulate the camera than the usual helmet mount. This was filmed Monday after the big dump
