I trust everyone realizes that Wildcat NH opened on Friday and Killington's opening day was Saturday? Stowe, MRG, Sugarbush, Pico and a few others were heavily tracked out from the earning their turns crowd. All reported mid-winter powder conditions. Here's a report on Killington's opening day.

i finally got out to alta this weekend. pretty thin, but got good turns in fresh snow on saturday. spent sunday doing ritualistic snow dances so this week's storms don't fizzle like the last one did.

my tomatos and basil are still producing heavily in november. this is just not right.

Excellent early season out in the Cascdes. Several feet of the new stuff. A couple of the downhill areas have opened already. I got 5,000 vertical on a couple of yo-yos in the Mt. Rainer backcountry last weekend. Should be a good season. If you're into the downhill scene check out Whistler, Sun Peaks, or other interior BC places. They should be rockin' by now.

Snow on Colorado's mountains? Check out this Nov. 16 high-altitude photo.

Currently A-Basin, Breck, Copper, Keystone, Loveland, Wolf Creek and Winter Park are operating in one fashion or another. Eldora and Vail open tomorrow, Crested Butte on Saturday. All are or will be operating with no more than 30% of their terrain. Very little (if any, depending on area) expert terrain is open.

Typically in the west, we need a good 4 feet of settled base to cover up the rocks.

I'm opening the season for myself on Saturday at Keystone. A bunch of folks I know have already been out to Brek, Keystone, and A-Basin and the reports were all good. It's early season stuff, but still well worthwhile, according to them... Of course almost everyone in Denver has a season pass, so its not like we're paying by the day or anything.

Of course, it's not too likely I'll get much further than the bunny slopes on Saturday, so...
