    I keep cluttering up the Maine thread with snow photo's.
    I'll see how this goes. Feel free to 'dump' the ski & ride photo's here. I want to see them!
    I go riding at Killington at least once a week. Look me up if your into that.

    It's been good.

    Beautiful photos, but this is the Northeast section! Show-off!
    But can you ski in the morning, do office hours in the evening, then spend the next day walking around NYC before seeing a play?
    Didn't think so! :imaposer

    Finally, a thread I understand on advrider! I just started lurking here after getting my first motorcycle inspired in part by a long thread on the TGR forum. Just bouncing from one midlife crisis to the next, can't wait for ski season to resume next week.

    And Scottybobs no less. Is there any motorcycle equivalent the perfect tele turn?

    Was a nice morning at Blue Mountain, Pa. today. A balmy 10 degrees in the Valley, with the sun shining brightly.

    Good parking spot:

    Warm as toast, as long as no skin exposed:

    Conditions perfect. Thank goodness for 4 cold nights, and some of the best snow-making on the East coast...

    One of the benefits of being old and having a free season's pass. I can get about 6 runs in between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., then I leave! Did the same thing when I lived in Vermont. Two good hours early, then leave "Dodge"! A little lunch, relaxation, then office hours this afternoon!

    I may go up tomorrow morning as well, if you are interested. But yes, I'll quit the 1st time I have to wait on a lift line.

    I didn't take many photo's yesterday with the -45 windchill. I did manage 8300 vertical before retreat.

    I was at Whitetail yesterday and the conditions where good in the morning. All this cold weather has made for some good riding.

    One early morning Couple years ago out in Summit County we got off the lift with a -65 wind chill thinking it was bad. By noon it was only -30 a literal heat wave as it never got above -40 our entire week!

    If your dresses for it and these days there’s enough gear made even for fat bodies like me to coverup and you should stay warm and safe!

    I have definitely been fine tuning my clothing over the last few days.
    I find a scarf the key ingredient.
