I’m not skiing til Friday so those winds don’t matter to me. I just want snow to fall on the backside of the storm.

Ugh
Maybe nowhere. Still haven’t gotten out.
Maybe Wachusset for a few hours? Maybe Bretton Woods Sunday?

Probably will do Friday. We were going to go tomorrow, but with the wind, there could be holds.

Nowhere...

I won't be back on the slopes until the 2nd week of December. I just did ski 3 days at Sugarbush though (Sunday-Tuesday). I understand some of the WROD comments in this thread. If I didn't have a pass, I wouldn't have been skiing. But since I have a pass and it is "free", might as well take some runs and start to get the legs used to skiing again.

Agreed...plus I got to try out my new skis.
