Shit, I did it. Ok what do we have? Looks like we may get a few inches. Meadows seems to be opening. Hmmmm are you thinking what I am thinking? That's right, it's time to ski the trees! And by trees I mean the tops of those poor little 24" trees that are still sticking up through the pathetic snow pack. But what the hell, the skis are trashed anyway. See you on the slopes.
