What does your backyard look like?
January 19, 2007
A guest from Binghamton, NY last week told me, "there are Canadian Geese swimming in a pond in my backyard right now." Needless to say he was happy to have migrated over to Mount Snow and do a little slope-schussing. Still, his picturesque description made me want to see his backyard in all it's non-winter glory -- and now we want to see yours too. Email a digital photo of your backyard to email@example.com
, along with your name and town, and we'll put it on our homepage. Thanks.
well, right now, my backyard has one inch of fresh lovely powder, and my front yard is ebellished with frist tracks. looks like it might last another hour or two ;-)
Hey Mount Snow, we're heading up your way on the 28th; I'm curious what your back yard looks like?
Jimmy, their website shows overcast and a lot of white: http://www.mountsnow.com/
This is a pretty fun backyard idea they have going. Comprex has to mail them that great pic.
PS: for Jimmy's BIRTHDAY a little snow in the next 24 hrs and good snowmaking temps to infinity and beyond.
Comprex, please tell me that picture isn't current. That's way too green for January!
As for our backyard, if you check our home page, the promo has up to date shots of our trails juxtaposed with the photos we are taking.
The cold temperatures this week have allowed us to up our available terrain to nearly 50 trails. It was sunny this morning, but clouds are rolling in, as we're expecting a storm that will drop a couple of inches on us tonight. The latest forecast I read says it will be overcast this weekend, with temps in the teens and twenties.
Thanks to Scott for letting me post this here, and thanks to all of you who are keeping the faith for winter sports this season.
Hey Mt. Snow,
When's more stuff on the Northface openning up? By Sunday? I love the trails over on that side.
We're leaving Friday for a little family ski safari. We're skiing Jiminy Peak on Saturday and then skiing Mt. Snow on Sunday before heading further north to ski Okemo (2), Stowe (1), MRG (1), & Sunday River (1). Thats assumming the kids and their parents hold out.
Right now we have Chute, Free Fall and a few connector trails. We've had to be pretty selective with our trailmaking considering the temperatures and that nearly all the snow is "our own" as opposed to natural. Our focus has been getting enough on Carinthia and the Main Face, and with Snowdance coming on line this weekend we'll be nearly all the way there. Then we'll probably move back to some of the black diamond favorites like Ripcord on the North Face.
I hope it snows for your birthday....
You don't want to miss it, i'm just waiting for fishnski or jonjon to call the storm
Wow...the big 30....or so!
does your chick know about this? You need some professional help ... seriously.
Wow...the big 30....or so!
Thanks Colonel they tell me that 50 is the new 30 . It's good to be 30 again .
That is unbelievable. Looks like a man made gun and set up, thats pretty good. I love it. Wish everyone had one of those
Hey E, snowmakers is beyond needing professional help. Ya he's the guy that gave up the opportunity to be the head snowmaker at Moonshine Mountain to go to college.
yo Jimmy, I didn't realize that you hit a milestone for another year
. Looks like I get to buy Saturday in the pub. See you there!
We've received a few pictures showing people making snow in their own backyard. Even though, it's not what we're looking for campaign-wise, it's been a great thing to discover the lengths people are going to in order to get snow.
(P.S. -- We're getting a couple inches of help from above as I type this!)
