I Have No Idea What to Title This Article. Conditions Are Great Right Now Though, Go Ride!

It's been a while but I'm back. I picked a pretty decent morning too as it's currently snowing across much of the region. It's not a huge snow by any means but I don't think anyone is complaining. Snow is snow!
You know, I hate to have to call someone out as it's not really my style. However, I feel it is necessary as Sugar's site is saying 3 inches while we are reporting a single inch. I live right across the street from there at an elevation that Google Earth shows as equivalent to that of the bottom of the main lift. We had maybe ¾ of an inch of snow on the ground. An inch might be stretching it. I'm going to leave it at that. Either way, Shug is 100% open today and conditions should be pretty sweet.
I was at Beech last night and it's easily the best conditions I've seen there in two or three years. It's rather impressive how much snow they have on the mountain. I've seen more in the trees and off trail before (I love to explore out there), but as far as what's on the mapped runs it doesn't get much better than right now. I could be living in the moment. Go stand on the side of Upper Shawneehaw along the row of houses and tell me what you think.
Finally, don't forget about Beech's 80's weekend coming up. There's all kind of events going on beginning Thursday night at Fast Eddie's. Live music, a Big Hair & Radical Air Competition, and the SkiNC.com 80's Apparel Contest are all slated to happen out there this weekend. Mike is actually juding the apparel contest and I'm pretty sure I'll be entering it. Here's a preview of my outfit. What do you think?
