Only got 1 day in but my daughter was born on December 3rd... c section and just got home from the hospital with my wife today.

Not only am I elated by current events but not too upset the skiing isn't prime right now.
Congrats!!!

Not bad; hope they can open more terrain tomorrow or things will get crowded and scratchy real fast.

Snowed all day, by 2pm trails got really nice especially on edges where binding top powder made for very nice turns. Taking today off, glad I did because I would have gone to Belle where I hear the triple is down so they are essentially closed.

Two days of nice groomer skiing at Sunday River. They had enough routes open to make for fun and complete ski days. Travelled with a buddy. Made a friend on the mountain. Met up with two other friends for Saturday. Just an all around social and fun few days of skiing in the mostly sun.

Got off the mountain and down to the hotel in Gorham right as it began snowing, which was great considering we were in my friend's solara. not exactly a snow car. got a pizza and some beers and went to bed at 8. woke up before 6 to drive down to loon. the snow had stopped and the roads were pretty clear. there was a solid coating of white making New England look absolutely beautiful. got to loon at 7:30 to a report of 5-6". suited up and were on the line for gondola before the opening bell. got off the gondola and headed straight over to the north peak quad. they left the skier's right sides of walking boss and flume totally ungroomed. super low tide, but super fun powder runs. did each of those 2-3 times before they were tracked out. we then decided to duck the rope and head over to the closed terrain under the double chair. epic runs. did that 5 or 6 times before we headed over to kancamagus to lap groomers for a while. with 25k tracked vertical by 12:45, we decided to get lunch and head home. went and got poutine, and they gave us a huge portion of chicken fingers for free because they were sitting under the heat lamps too long. epic. we drove straight without stopping to Brooklyn and made it from loon to Williamsburg in 5 hours 10 minutes

I go to Montana on Friday and I gotta say I'm a little bummed to be leaving this active weather pattern, but I have high confidence that I will be skiing trees in New England 12/26-28 when I return

keep the faith
Killington was good today. Not icy and very good conditions for December. Catwalk was the run of the day, glad I made the hike.

Horrible - They seem to groom with a ball bearing maker. Illusion was the only thing worth skiing.

Pretty sure I’m hitting it tomorrow. It’s tough to get good conditions there compared to Cat/BW. Steeply pitched and lower in elevation than the others. Less snow and more thaws. I wish I liked it more. Decent vert, though.
