    Probably more spoiled than picky. Last year's AZ gathering at Snow was stellar with the conditions on Chute. I usually only ski 1-2 days in November. If I'm going to burn a V day, it has to be a bit more than Canyon-Standard. That would entertain me for 2 or 3 hours. I'd rather save the V Day for rad bumps in the spring.

    I ski many Saturdays....with my daughter at Sundown. I'll ski Sundays here and there with my father-in-law, or Sunday nights at Sundown. I get a lot of vacation time and I burn a lot of it on Friday ski days. It seems the AZers I ski with most can swing it too.

    Gotcha. And I get it. I thought you had more time in the with the co. It seems like you've been hating' on the Friday gatherings forever now... Maybe next season...

    I ski double black diamonds.

    Cool..lets just be happy if there is any skiing that weekend..some years it's really warm in mid November..but remember November of 1997..it dumped over a foot of fresh in mid November on Stowe and Sugarbush..I got busted for poaching Domino at Sugarbush..,"Sorry Mr. Patroller I thought that rope meant the trail was reserved for me"...lol

    im down it would be nice to be there on friday so it isn't as crowded and we can go fast without killing anyone. the big question is where we gona have the AZ party.

    I think there will be lots of AZ parties..last year opening weekend at Mount Snow wasn't even that crowded..I could ski fast and avoid people..the Canyon-Standard run is fairly wide..I like to ease into the ski seasons..I sort of hope there aren't any bumps opening day..but push piles are fun for getting credit card air..lol

    I could swing 11/21, but not 11/14. I am planning on going up sometime during Veterans Day weekend if they're open.

    Just to add to the jones factor, when I hiked up and around Mount Snow this AM, grass on chute has been cut AND the snowmaking hose has been dropped off at each spigot/gun! Guns haven't been hooked upto to the hoses or pulled into place yet, but it won't be long now

    Absolutely amazing how much off season work Mount Snow has done/still is doing. The semi-sad thing is that a great deal of what they've done WON'T be noticed by all but the most diehard of mountain ops/ snowmaking tech/Mount Snow "geeks" New feeder pipes, "recycled" air/water tower guns on trails that were formerly ground guns, multiple new decks, repositioned kids program buildings, LOTS of paint, widened juntions of trails, and oh yes 150 fan guns
