    Jay Peak just announced they're re-opening on Wednesday and Thursday, they're expecting at least 25" of snow between now and then.

    I was wondering if you all can still ski up there... We spent the week before Easter skiing in Utah then waxed and put our skis away... I got all I can do to get the boats ready for the season... Skiied a week up in VT in Feb, it was very nice....

    Same here. There is still MANY boats around here with their wrap still on (about 80% of the boating population). Around 80 and sunny on Friday and Saturday this weekend.

    Guess where I'll be?

    one thing about living in the snow... you don't have to keep your mexican fan palms trimmed:smt038

    Spent all day giving all of our palms a good trimming and bailing palm frons with some razer sharp fangs so that the garbage dude will haul them off!

    I have developed a technique that uses a tree saw and masons string. It is reletively quick and keeps me from bleeding!:thumbsup:
