Well I have to tell you that I have been lurking around on this sight for most of the off-season and much like everyone else I have been teased and tortured by forecasts of huge El Nino snows only to have to learn yet more patience. It's gets to the point where I am overly estactic on those rare occasions when I do see the snow guns working. And it's because this is a great site and the best resource to get all of the latest slope reports for the SE resorts.
Mike, Kenny and the whole crew... you guys do a fantastic job! Love the web cams. Thank you!

I live in NE FLA...Sugar and Beech are about a 7 to 8 hour drive for me. I was lucky enough to get in some pre-Turkey day skiing days in at Sugar. The lift (once they got it working, I waited 3 1/2 hrs til they figured it out) is all as advertised. Smooth fast fast trip to the top with an LAX style approach and landing. Snow was great for the slopes they had opened.

I was also able to visit App before I had to drive back. Was very impressed with the snow and grooming, but was stoked to see they actually had some terrain park set up. NoleSki likes to catch big air. :)

So now, I'm driving back up to Boone today with plans to ski tomorrow at Sugar, maybe Cat...Then driving Friday up to Snowshoe to check out those slopes for my first time. I had booked the trip months ago and was getting nervous when the weather looked like it wasn't going to cooperate. Sooooooo happy to hear they are opening Friday! I cannot wait to see it in person. The Cams make it look like winter wonderland.

Hopefully see you guys on the slopes!
Mike :B>

I'll be curious to what you think of Snowshoe. Sadly, only about 10% of the trails will be open. That may lead to some disappointment.

Like it says on the home page THINK SNOW!

Sweet! I was just thinking on my drive in that I need road trip buddies.

Would keep me sane while getting strung out on the road....
