    Probably, being a holiday weekend.

    They could but you'd probably not want them to do that. With only Canyon and Snowdance open below it that's a lot of traffic headed onto those trails plus the Cascade traffic from the Bluebird.

    OH! And I forgot to mention I saw a BALD EAGLE on the drive up today. That alone made it worth the trip.
    MERIKA!

    Canyon was buttery corduroy to start the morning off, pretty much hero snow. So good. I ran that back 3x in a row right away.
    Rode from 9-12:30ish and now I'm back at home for a few meetings to end the day.
    I made it out today as well from about 10-2. Great soft snow most everywhere. Bit of scratch on the top of Freefall and Cascade per usual, but great day, and plenty of routes open with 3-4 choices from each 3 pods. Felt like late March.

    Typically for Thanksgiving Weekend, if they have the coverage (which they should easily) and the crowds are there (likely), Canyon Quad will spin, especially with the N.E. Time to Snowdance route available for lower level skiers

    Got to Mount Snow for my second day of the season yesterday. The place was the emptiest I've seen in quite a while. The weather was a cloudy 40 degrees after a quick freeze the previous night. It made for really good carving conditions- firm base with a thin layer of edgable loose stuff on top. My favorites were Nitro (no features) and Canyon. Everything was in good shape but it's not fair to call Snowdance a beginner trail right now. It's at roughly 1/3rd width, maybe 4 cat tracks wide.

    Snowmaking whales on Lodge. Guns set-up on Fallen Timbers. Looking at Monday for ski day #3...could be a Southern Vermont Special!

    Saw one the other day flying over the river near my house. Never seen one around there which is unusual since I live fairly close to the Quabbin.

    Solid recovery effort on the hill today. Basically everything except Chute has either already been or is being resurfaced currently. A few sloppy air/water HKD's here and there, but overall a decent product.

    Expansion mode is underway as well.
