    New England Best place for early season turns

    Ski & Snowboard Expo - Boston

    The 37th annual Ski & Snowboard Expo comes to Boston next week. I haven't been to one in a long time. I was wondering if anyone has attended during the past couple of years and whether it is worth attending. It is being held November 8-11 at the Seaport World Trade Center...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Early Season Turns - Spray Valley, Alberta on October 6, 2018

    Winter seems to have come early to Alberta. After a week of white-knuckle commutes, I was bust some stress with some short powder laps this last Saturday. Apart from an open creek crossing, we were able to keep skis on from the highway to the top and back again. The snow in the alpine was...

    California/Nevada 2018-19 Tahoe Ski Resorts/Conditions/Meetups Thread....

    So this season required a trigger to start the thread. What prompted me to do it? Was it the 96 degree temperatures here in Placer County, home to Squaw Valley USA? Was it me sitting in my swimsuit typing this next to the pool? Was it the tent sales this weekend and the anticipated new ski...

    California/Nevada 2018/2019 Southern California Thread - Big Bear, Mountain High, Baldy, Wrightwood, etc.

    Hmmm. Since the Tour de Big Bear is over and the chances of El Niño are increasing and MM started the new Mammoth thread, I figured we might as well get this one started also. El Niño is often good to So Cal - not always - but often so ... start those snow dances! Bob and I will be skiing...
