0 days. Nothing is open in CA yet.

@Philpug Be carefull tomorrow at Mt Rose. Theyll open with a WROD !
Thank you, my head will be on a swivel. Last year on opening day @otto got taken out and he is about as experienced and confident skier on any hill.

No sense in having your first day, be your last day.

When back east a woman I knew who worked as a ski instructor at Copper Mt CO tried snowboarding her first day of the year at Liberty in PA. Snowboard spun weird & she was out all year with a spiral leg fracture.

Still, Big Snow is fun, especially if you go with a few ski buddies. Do lunch/beers afterward. The runs are short and yeah, not a lot of pitch, but it's great for pre-season tune-ups and scratching the itch. I'll miss having it within driving distance.

I appreciate Big snow more than I ever thought I would. I went 4 times this past off season. I usualy meet one of my Killington ski buddies. I work on drills, ski without poles and just enjoy sliding on snow. The terrain park is pretty fun too. I like going up/down the kickers and up/over the banked sides. I have found I like it too if I have a pair of skis I'm not sure of, want to test them out, etc.

Happy hour at the yard house is definitely part of the ritual.

Fun place.

I agree about the terrain park-that’s where I spent my time when I skied there. The skiers’ far left was a good place to practice slalom turns, too. And beers afterward is a must to make it a full day!! I was lucky it was a straight shot on I-78 to Big Snow.
