Jackson Hole Says

The snow is already falling and the wait is almost over in Jackson Hole! Winter is here, and we're on the brink of yet another incredible season of skiing and riding in the Tetons.
By the numbers, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is home to 2,500 acres of inbounds terrain spread over a 4,139' vertical rise, all covered with an average of 459 inches (over 38 feet!) of deep, fluffy powder each winter. The numbers, however, can't possibly tell the whole story – with runs like Corbet's Couloir, the Alta Chutes and the Hobacks, the terrain at Jackson Hole is legendary. But that's not to say that it's all steep and deep; fifty percent of the terrain is rated as beginner or intermediate, with plenty of wide-open corduroy groomers and an experienced Mountain Sports School for those looking to make their first turns. There's something for everyone at Jackson Hole!

Okemo's getin it going for the 18th

I love this place. My sister was married in Ludlow and skied with her bridal veil. We had to ride the shuttle up the road to second set of lifts this was all before Thanks Giving. I'm bias because of all the time I spend their, but these folks really do A good job at everything they do. The new Jackson Gore base area is getting even bigger with the second health club being finished and phase 2 building looked like it was coming along last time I was their hot tubing. I love resorts in the summer you get the whole place to your self. Jackson Gore is the future of resorts. I don't miss the days of getting ready in the parking lot one bit. Here some thing from their email.Season About to Get Underway

Stratton Fire's Up The Snow Guns

Todays email from Stratton . Ladies and Gentlemen, tune your skis and snowboards because it's starting to feel a lot like winter here at Stratton Mountain. We fired up the snowguns for the first time last Thursday night, laying down a base on "The Bears": Black Bear, Polar Bear and Grizzly Bear. From there we move on to Snow Bowl, with the team poised to make snow at every opportunity as we gear up for Opening Day 2007.Meanwhile, the snow is falling from every direction with those tower guns blasting and pine trees bowing beneath Mother Nature's own first storm. We've set our sights on opening November 22. Mark your calendars and get ready!

The rumor mill

Hi everyone. So Sunday river didn't open. I got caught up in the hip. Just so you all know, the purpose of this blog is merely add as much information about skiing and some snow boarding that I can find on the internet. By no means do I consider myself an expert of anything except as a skier. I scour the internet in my spare time and try to post interesting topic's and links. If I step on anyone's toes, it is unintentional. I still am not sure how cool it is to post photo's from resorts. I have read some things that lead me to believe that doing it could come back to haunt me. So I will just be adding links for now. I hope to eventually be a one stop click for your daily snow reports and skiers news. I do have an inside ear. You will here more about this as I get comfortable with my postings. Please keep coming back and click around the resorts. My goal is to have navigation of the site as easy as possible. I still have a lot to learn about blogging so please bare with me. HAVE A GREAT DAY

Any bets on what trails will be open? / :::::::::::**UPDATE**::::::::::::::: The validity of this is under some debate.
