    I love seeing others' ski photos. Post them here! I'll start. Yesterday at Crystal, my first ski day. Great coverage, very nice snow. Busier than I expected--almost like a regular season weekend rather than a mid-November day. Started out beautiful, clouds moved in throughout the day and they got 10" last night.

    white face nov 25 2017.jpg white face nov 25 2017 almost there.jpg whteface 11 25 2017.jpg #2, Whiteface, Started out Sunny, then clouds & drizzle. nice surface, soft, easy to ski piles, a black pearl kind of day. We need more cold air for snowmaking & of course snow. Doesn't take too many runs to wear you out here! And I always have fun skiing with @Olesya Chornoguz

    Well, yes and no in terms of doldrums. It's been great snowmaking weather in the southeast in the last couple weeks. The NC mountains got 8-10 inches of snow out of a storm that also helped the WV ski areas. Cold weather in and snow in PA and northeast too recently. But obviously many people think more about CO and UT so if it's bad there then it feels like the season is already a bust. I've been too busy having fun skiing with friends while driving from NC to Boston the last week to do trip reports but am working on it. Here's a couple pics.

    Somehow managed to get first tracks at Blue Mountain the other day. Great conditions and a rare weekday off; lots of laps!

    And a little night skiing and being appalled at my upright stance. I'm working on that, with some good help.

    It was beautiful! The camera didn't catch the ice on the trees w/ the sun shining thru, it was better in person, it was really spectacular, I could only have my hand out for a little bit it didn't get about 14F. The snow was perfect groomed powder and as it got skied, soft piles appeared. and I had the renouns on..I really love these skis. thanks @ride_ski for the nudge for me to get them.... you were 'spot on'
