I'll be there early with my wife and son along with my bro in law and his fiancee. Wife and I will be switching off between skiing/watching son in/around lodge.
If I can get the 1st shift on skis I should be ready to roll by 8:30 ish at Red Chair.

I'll head over early. Groomers should be nice til we figure out what else will ski well. Upstairs by the bar behind the chalkboard is where i'll be. Or over @ the Red chair. No worries if you can't swing it, but i'll be there. Been really enjoying the early am cruisers this year.

I will look for you....We'll be there most of the day, grabbing lunch in the BLT as a group at some point I'm sure as well.
My avatar pic is what I'll be wearing.

S. VT tomorrow through Wed. Stratton tomorrow, Bromley & Magic on the weekend, play it by ear next week but most likely stick with Stratton. Hopefully we get some new snow Monday, current forecast is 6". If it dumps enough for a powder day at Magic on Monday or Tues count me in.
