Well Seven Springs was blowing snow today, and they're expecting a few inches of natural this week... so it's time for a Mid-Atlantic seasonal thread.
It's been a fantastic start to the season in the Rockies... the midwest is about to open in several places... maybe the Appalachians can get...
With Killington, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and a few others open for the season, along with the few resorts with soft openings like Mt Rose, the temperatures are dropping and we're seeing more ski hills firing up the guns.
This is stoke worthy...

Rock skis or good skis?
