Sounds like your daughter married wisely.
How much more snow will it take for MRG to open? I'm not sure how much rain they'll get this week, but that could settle the base...
I'm visiting family in CT this weekend, but I was able to sneak away for two days in Southern VT (Sneaux and Okemo.) After seeing numerous sliders and tracks on a close trail in Sneaux's North Face, I ducked some ropes and was treated to some wind-blown knee deep. (And some funky transitions over waterbars.) While there is not enough base in Southern VT to open on natural alone, it was great seeing the entire mountain blanketed in snow in November.
