The snow in my area (St. Paul) got all @##$'d up in a late December thaw. Now it's REALLY cold and no skiing. Possibly some available further north.

Moonlight skiing coming up in February. http://www.batb.org/ I've skied in this the past two winters and the event is a great time.

Oh YEAH!

I "got'em". Both racing classic XC skis & my new BC skis (Asnes combi Combat Norwegian army skis W/ Voile release Tele bindings.)

I'm skiing (& skinniing) up in the Spring Mt'ns.on my BC skis outside 'Vegas this weekend. Love It when I can go to the snow but the snow doesn't come to me. After 35 years of digging out my driveway in Erie, PA I can proudly say I no longer own a snow shovel. (My BCA avy shovel doesn't count.)
