Anyone skiing besides West Yellowstone and Alaska?

No skiing here in the midwest unless you count a couple of bunny hills
at some local ski areas. NO snow in the Twin Cities, no snow in
Northern Minnesota, no snow in Wisconsin and no snow in the U.P. The
biking has been great though!

There is some skiing here in Colorado. Breckenridge Nordic has been
grooming since sometime in late October. I've managed 4 on-snow days thus
far: 2 days in the local Open Space parks (ungroomed, hiking trail skiing),
and 2 days at Breck.

One of your fellow Minnesotans was at Breck Nordic last weekend (sorry, I
didn't get his name). I asked if he knew you, but he said no, he only knows
of you by reputation. At least he told me how to (properly) pronounce your
last name. I asked him if he was Wenner, and he laughed.

Hope everyone gets snow soon!

In Northeastern BC (Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson) we've been
having our best season in years. I've personally been skiing for close
to a month now.

In Fort St. John we've had our course at one of the local provincial
parks groomed for a couple of weeks now and hope to get our in-city
course groomed within the next couple of weeks.

Skiing have been possible for about one month here. Now it's 2-3 degrees.

We're currently sitting at -22 degrees. Tomorrow's high is -25 degrees.

No doubt about it - I'm going for a ski tomorrow. :)
