    Getting close, the only thing standing between a normal standard opening and a sick one is one big storm. Only a couple weeks left for some of these resorts. Let it snow!

    • I’ve been thinking about that. I wold love to see a good big dump soon! We always seem to get a good one right around Halloween!
