It has NOT been a banner year for skiing in the North East. We have managed to get out a couple of time, this past weekend we did our final trip for some spring skiing at the Beast of the East; [image]

The bumps were soft;

Other trails are melting fast;

Always stop to pay homage to the Yeti;

Ski camping in the East may not be as festive as out West...but it is convenient;

[image]
Ski's fit in the EC basement real nice;

[image]
As always-be sure to rehydrate after skiing;

That's it for this year-the skis/boards are waxed and put away...

Sorry, that looks like it did here last year!

BTW, if you use "[ url ]" at the beginning and "[/ url ]" around your urls (without the spaces), they will be clickable. Or use the image control but specify width 600.

Hey Bill,

Even with the lack of snow here, you look like you had a decent winter.

I normally do X-C skiing- not classic but skating. Never got the skis out of the bag this winter. Nuts.
But we are itching to pull our EC out from under the "cover-it" garage.

Maybe we might even meet you this year!

We just committed to the LOA rally in Pa. in August. They look like a good group.

Hi John, yes not much winter in NE this year. X-country, snow mobiling, etc were all no shows...
Oh well...it was great to have the camper out again ready for more adventures!
I'll be up your way again soon...may go ski Tucks if conditions are OK. Planning to stop in at TCW soon to see Bill/Ryan.
Did you have that procedure to your EC we discussed last year?

Yes TCW did the work. I left it there for a few weeks in the late Fall.

They did the roof Eternabond strip plus a few minor warranty items.

Wow! You actually have snow. Nice report.

We're somewhat north of you, and have zero snow outside our home (on top of a mountain in the Townships of Quebec).

Never seen anything like it. It was 57F here yesterday, and 51F out the door right now.

On edit: and, the grass here is getting green [emoticon]

This is our snow outside the house 8 minutes ago (and we're 90 straight-line miles northwest of Mount Washington, NH !) :

This was the snow last March 11th -- and, at only neck deep, 2015 was a very low snowfall year! :

Your TR is sure making me think about heading out again this weekend while the skiing is still good.

Great that you are out with your kids sliding on that white stuff even if this years winter is a bit of a no show. Do you plug into shore power , use a genny or are set up for dry camping?

I guess I shouldn't rub it in that our little hill (6200')is still building it's base.(235 cm). Started late Oct cross country skiing and both areas, Sovereign Lake Nordic and Silver Star Resort are closing April 3rd even though there is still good powder snow.

Last year, most of the east had winter and the west was a little shy of snow.
