    Funny edits are funny.
    I post a psa to be careful as I had read a bunch of reports of weekenders posting about skiing in the woods and right on cue get a snarky comment which I respond to in kind. Results in "name calling, like a baby".

    Spent a quiet day off the net yesterday completing a punch list on a condo I remodeled. Love my service job that pays well more than $15 an hour.

    27` light breeze and 7" of new snow bob. Stowe recommends staying out of the woods on their snow report. I would be careful in there and avoid the Notch for now.

    Time to shovel!

    Nice storm, but as seems to be the case lately, way too hyped.
    Hope it sticks to the porcelain surface

    Iím offended by your use of the term ďbeaterĒ. It implies that jersey Dave beats his wife... not cool brah.

    I nominate you as the official arbiter of words or terms that shall not be used in the ec roll call because they could offend someone...

    Now a solid 10" in the yard. I threw snow onto the steep bank by the driveway with no result. The real fluff coming down now. Walk the dog then off to the flat boring pastures of NESlopes to shred with my boy on his birthday. Dense snow should be niceand supportive by tomorrow. The surface was a nice and grippy away from the resorts so I don't see any issues with bonding. A great recovery. Hoping for less warm air then predicted this weekend as with this storm.

    Plow wall from hell in coastal Portland. Glad to hear it sounds like the storm never made the switch in northern Maine. I'll be at it Friday, and maybe Saturday. No Sunday though.

    Reports that itís raining up high in SL but snow down low causing goggles to ice and then get coated with flakes.

    BD has been rubbing it in that he's skiing while I'm "teaching" today. Hopefully some good pics for the thread from him.

    Edit: I spoke ignorantly. Apologies. My dumb comment is quoted later if you want to hate me.

    Well that’s one connotation of the term, but since it’s all about context, in this case beater refers to a bad skier.

    First into the glades in Brackett Basin at the Loaf. Really creamy foot of snow with no signs of real instability but there is a crust way down there if you stomp a turn hard enough. No rain here but freezing mist in the cloud layer at the top this morning which has ended now and is currently dumping. Yesterday in a respirator all day dealing with toxic dust, today in goggles skiing the fresh... what a turnaround! Stoke!

I wish they would leave it up for the afternoon. Itís been snowing for at least an hour down in the lower valley.

    Fun am at the Bush this morning with Mr. Wintry Mix and both of us on the slow boards. Maybe 8-10" of cream above the ice, better cover than expected but thiiiiiiiin on anything south facing. Tried to produce a love child between my knee and a birch tree on the first run, unsuccessful but knee is still intact.

    Vibes to my neighbor who was hopelessly trying to spin his Nissan through the fresh snow while I bolted to meet a friend. Sorry dude!

    Please enjoy this exciting and action-filled pic from today at Stowe, where surprisingly enough some lifts were turning with people riding them. Fun on the trails, woods are still a no-go. Dumped all morning. Another good storm and things will be much nicer.

    My two laps this morning at Stowe were a revelation compared to the last week but not up to the hype IMO. Woods were highly variable, as expected, which made it difficult to link turns together. Iíll post up some pics later if anything from my camera is worth posting.

    ETA- not sure of depth but the it was dense and surfy. Anything previously groomed to break up the crust was a blast.

    Nice job, gentlemen. Would've loved to be at the Bush this morning but I'm also happy to not have another snow day. I love midweek pow days but I also enjoy 1 extra day of summer vaca.
