Enceladus - Anyone ready to make a pilgrimage to the ultimate ski mecca in our solar system?

So apparently one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus, has powder that's finer than powder, volcanoes that spew ice, and constant snow that's been occurring for eons. Who's ready to go? Would make one heck of a TR!

Seems like there's pretty limited elevation change there though.  i.e., it seems like the volcanoes are just surface vents to a world-wide ocean that happens to be buried in snow and ice?

Dude, Pluto is sooo over. Not even a planet. Try Eris for real powder: http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/123939main_newplanet-concept-2250-3000.jpg

 

Not sure Phil's thread on snow tires covers getting there, though.
