The Mid Atlantic and the Northeast had great snow conditions over this past President's Day weekend. This occurred at the perfect time for ski area operators, since the crowds were in general larger than normal for this typically busy and $$$ weekend.
30 inches of snow has fallen over five days at Timberline over the past five days, with 20 inches on Thursday/Friday. Due to work (and 6 days off for the Utah Gathering the previous week), I couldn't ski either of those two days. But conditions on Sat, Sun, Mon did not suck too badly. And hopefully won't on Tuesday.
Here are some quick random pix from Leftover's Day (Monday.) Conditions were too good to stop for pix on Sat/Sun. And the temps w winds were pretty brisk those days.

Here are a couple of pix of the center section of Cherry Bowl. The scrub was removed from this section over the past summer, increasing the number of skiable lines. (In the past it was over-thinned due to logging, so this part is really not tree skiing, but it can be tons of fun.)
For the Wolf Creekers in the crowd, we polish our ski bases on the brush. Actually, this is a poor shot of typical brush lines we ski at the end of powder days to get fresh tracks. And brush and scrub does not grow on rock, which is a plus. Lesser of two evils.
@Jimmy about ready to lay down some Wheeling, WV funk in some newly-cleared trees. Putting a glide in his stride and a dip in his hip. And he didn't spill a drop of his dirty martini.
This view never gets old for me:
