Well it does get better the further north you drive.
I'm sure it does, and I'd love to get up to Vermont or Maine etc. to do some skiing but there's a time and money issue...
I just got approval this AM to take a week off in late February to go see the kids in SE Idaho and ski Targhee, woot! I may stop for a day or two in Salt Lake to visit family and ski the Wasatch while I'm at it, if they have any decent snow by then. We had 64*F here yesterday... Great motorcycling weather, a bit windy (gusts to 50+ mph) for bicycling, and just crap for skiing. I'm glad you folks up north are getting some actual Winter conditions.
37 degrees, sunny, warm (by skiing standards), no lines, and 13,000 vertical feet in 4 hours at Blue Mountain.
Not Tukerman's or the Peruvian Cirque at Snowbird, but decent for an hour and 1/2 from home, with some time for a motorcycle ride this afternoon.
Looks like you have better conditions then we have up here.
Day 18 on the slopes adds another 21k vertical and 24 miles in the books.
I broke a cable on my bindings first thing, my local shop hooked me up for the day at no charge!
Bought some Toppers in the parking lot.
Season totals so far:
233 miles,226K vertical,47moh top speed.
Local ski hill. Wasn’t much of a line at the triple.

Careful, man, you post stuff like this and the Taliban or ISIS will know where to find you and disrupt your day!
Grandfatherly word of caution. Everyone knows that people get hurt on their last run, when they are tired.
I think that these smartphone apps that record your skiing are like the lap timers on race bikes. My limited experience over a number of years
is that people would crash more with the lap timers, because they were constantly trying to out-do their previous lap time. So they would exceed their capabilities.
Chasing vertical feet, speed, or number of runs will get you doing stuff when you are tired. Best not to take the last run when your legs are turning to mush.
That's why we never say last run at the top
Make the call at the bottom
Yeah, +1 from me for grandfatherly advice! I notice when I get tired I do silly shite like crossing my tips which is almost always instantly rewarded with a biff. And you can trust me, I have eight (8.0) grandkids for crying out loud. When did this happen?? I'm still only 40 years old! in my head
It's worse when in the Alps or even a big mountain. I go out each day trying to beat the previous day.

Finally a powder day in PA! Tuesday @ PA's oldest Ski Area Laurel Mountain.
Getting some of the real thing at Whitetail today!
Great conditions at Blue this morning. And most regulars apparently are getting ready for Superbowl, since the place was empty for a Sunday...
We were also @ Whitetail in Mercersburg PA this morning. 2 snow days in 5 days is luck for south central PA.
Skiing meets dirt bike!
What to do with the tube after going Tubliss!
Ski brake holders.
Cold nights all week, with ongoing snowmaking should make Friday pretty good.
Will be meeting a buddy at the Valley Lodge at 8:00 a.m., with KSU at 8:30 if anyone else is interested.
Snowed 8" on Sunday and then another 10" or so yesterday making a nice base, deep enough for trail skiing today.
Clear skies, 25 degrees, and some new snow in the woods at Blue. Not as much as the Aderondacks (sic?), but super groomed trails....
Any Elk skiers in here? I'm a season pass holder and get there atleast twice a week. I'm humping thru work today to see if I can make a few runs this afternoon.
