Uh, I remember the year that they thought 90" at Camelback was WONDERFUL.  so...45 might be right.   But at least most areas have 100% snowmaking coverage....

I"ll certainly hook up with you out at 7 Springs when you get here . I bagged it that spring day a couple years ago when you were in town. Certainly we are not the SIerra over here in the Laurel HIghlands. But we still manage to have a wonderful time skiing and believe it or not sometimes its even really good. Just a lot fewer turns to the bottom unfortunately. I'm still impressed every season seeing our best skiers out here ski. There are a group of skiers that are mostly bumpers ski the nastiest troughy icy moguls and never bobble and make it look easy. Until I Can do that has well, and after 32 seasons of trying , I Acknowledge that ship has probably sailed, I still hold these guys in the highest regard . They set the bar pretty high IMHO. Pittsburgh is a great city you can do a lot worse! Plus we have direct flights to Denver now at decent airfares on Southwest. Lot's of Epic Pass holders in Pittsburgh. I'm first chair at the Springs usually every SAt and Sunday. Skip work on a Friday and you wil probably be able to ski with Alta 2 who can ski more runs in 1 day then most will do in 3 then drive back to Ohio Welcome back to the Burg!

A little PA bullet proof will fix that knee right up!

 

Let me know if you need a partner to road trip up to NY or Vermont after you get settled.

It's good to see that there are at least a few western skiers who are sensible enough to move east.  Careful, you might start a trend.  biggrin.gif

 

Best wishes on a speedy recovery.

Welcome back. I live about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh. Look up the Pittsburgh Ski Club for good trips and events.

I thought that might be the case. Okay, I can help you out with this. Box everything up and I'll come pick it up - you won't have to worry about it at all. This weekend a good time to come by?

Well, it'll be time to re-examine your quiver.  Short version: your frontside skis are likely to be your fatties out here in the East, so be sure to pick up a pair of detuned Slalom skis for "normal" days.

 

You'll also be able to poach plenty of urban stuff in Pittsburgh if you're so inclined, since most of the bloody town is a bunch of hills, though not nearly as scenic as San Francisco.  And a whole lot colder :)

 

Good luck!
