    11/11/17-Mt. Snow
    11/18-Mt. Snow
    11/24-Windham
    11/26-Belleayre



    Onteora only way down; snow groomed, hard and fast. I enjoyed fully for 4 hours between 9:30-1:30 then called it mostly from boredom. Good start for Belle, tons of snow and zero thin spots.

    I was there Friday and it was good. One intermediate way down but they also opened The Wall which made for several (10 or so) steep fun turns at the start of the descent.

    windham was fun. they had two approaches to the same long groomer (whistler). the groomer tracks were a little rough, some drop offs between each lane of the groomer. got there at 8:45, skied hard from 9-12, logged 20k vertical feet over 15 runs, and got back to Brooklyn by 3:30. the first few runs on the corduroy were nice. windham had way too many employees skiing. they would cluster in groups of 5+ and when you only have 1 trail open, it's not a good look to have ~40 employees out there clogging up the limited space. super quiet from 9-10, a little busy 10-11, then quiet again 11-12. just feels good to get the legs working.

    11-25 & 11-26 Sunday River. Only 6 runs each day as some spinal stenosis is having a very negative impact on my skiing. May need to see a surgeon and cut this season short.

    Sorry to hear that, wishing you the best whether you opt for the surgery route or not.

    Saturday it was fun. The upper part of Lynx started out a little chunky but once it warmed it was nice and soft. Polecat was soft all day.

    Does Polecat have full coverage side-to-side yet? My wife had a bit of a tough time with the thin cover during spring conditions.

    Pretty much it does. some of wide corners don't but they are still as wide if not wider as the straight sections.
