      It snowed like crazy for about 30 minutes today in central Illinois. The ground's too warm for it to stick. but it did affect visibility.

        They claim they are being responsible corporate citizens given the drought we had this summer. I suspect it is the covid restrictions make it harder to make a profit.

              I think I heard about this on the good ol' CBC... they do a lot of snowmaking out of the river there, right?

              Head west! We haven't got much for base on the Horse yet, but I've got snow in the yard already that will probably stay till the end of April, now. Early accumulations can get kind of rotten and prone to sliding, so as long as it starts dumping soon, the late start might actually be better. It's supposed to be another La Nina year, which usually means big powder.

              Our hill's requiring vaccine proof this year, but supposedly will be able to load the gondola at full capacity as a result. Last year, the lines were brutal and I avoided some of my favorite glade terrain to minimize time in line (better to hike or take a few extra rides on the upper chair to stay away from the base as long as possible).
              Drop the STICK, ride the SICK!

                  Was booked to go last February to Banff but cancelled with the Covid situation in AB at the time. Should still have a flight credit. But other travel plans may further delay getting out west this season.

                  We usually take a day trip to KH when in Banff. You are lucky to be there. Great resort.

                    Hi Guys.
                    I'm sitting up in Mammoth right now, I've been here for a week. We had a 3-ft dump in October and it's been pretty warm since that point, but plenty to ski on.

                    Everything is open out here, but I would definitely be current on your covid shots. I just got my third shot booster last week.

                      Great to hear you have good conditions and able to do some riding this early. Post some pictures when you get a chance to tease the rest of us Rick.

                      Get my booster in a month.

                        Hi Rick, Sorry I missed you!!! Was up this last weekend at Mammoth . Met my oldest son and his two girls who live in Pasadena. Real proud of my grandkids. The 10 year old went down from Cornice for the first time from the summit and the 7 year old did really well at an all day ski lesson ! Really nice conditions overall and lots open off the summit . Had a great time riding Slingshots one day and Spliffs the next!

                          Sorry I missed you. I went solo this trip and didn't take any photos.
                          I did have a visitor one morning at the house.
