Not to start a *flawed* poll, but will you be carving a turkey or carving a turn?

I myself will be carving a turkey.


Happy Thanksgiving all.

Turkey, however hope springs eternal the temp has dropped 20 degrees since yesterday in SW Pa. After agonizing on weather to go out to Vail over Thanksgiving and deciding not to it looks like their conditions have started to improve with some snow and the prospects for more.
For those that will be carving on snow Have a great day!

Letting my family in Maine carve, then I'll enjoy the goods! Way too warm and rainy up here to do any turns.

Looks like it'll be neither today. "Heavy Snow Warning" in Little Cottonwood Canyons with 9"-12" expected overnight, and another storm coming in on Saturday. Leaving right now for the 6 hr. drive to SLC for opening of the new chair at Alta tomorrow. Happy Turkey Day!

Today is traditionally opening day in Michigan's northern lower peninsula, but for most of the last dozen or so years, few of the remaining ski hills have been able to open on Thanksgiving Day because of weather. And that's the circumstance today. Only carving here will be the turkey.

Taking a lovely day off from the over crowded slopes here in Summit County. Going to enjoy a wonderful dinner later today with Tsavo, Bob Barnes, Tom Burch, mike_m and a multitude of other folks.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

You'd have to be a turkey to be carving anything but a turkey in the East. We're off to a pitiful start.

Turkey today, tennis (indoors) tomorrow. Smuggs upper mountain, last I looked, had one wet white stripe from top to bottom surrounded by, uh, earthtones. Technically, it opens tomorrow. I'll venture it Saturday.

Turkey today, turns for the rest of the weekend. With the break in the rain this AM, I've changed the oil in two cars, brought the tools back into the house from the sheds, got both snow blowers running, sucked up the remaining leafs, pulled the deck off the tractor so I can rebuild it over the next few months, took a shower, got packed for the weekend of skiing, woke my son up got him moving, so we can go to my sisters for the day. After we have dinner this afternoon we start the dishwasher and lock the door as we leave for VT.

Gee it's only 11AM. I'm almost ready for a nap...

One of my students threatened to wake me at 7:00 am if it snowed more than 6 inches. Given the crowds, this is the first time I'm glad that we didn't get that much snow.

Will also be at Tsavo's with Mikewil, Bob Barnes, etc.

Turkey.

The only thing sliding around here is the ice off of my roof.

Wow Max, you've been busy!

Doing the turkey thing today, turns tomorrow - probably doing the Killi thing for Friday and check out Mt. Snow Saturday, they say it's going to open....

Wow, I bet all will be comparing who carves a cleaner turkey. Best wished to everyone there.

Looking forward to the edge bevel discussions for the carving knife. Which angle is better for dark meat.

Turns this morning and the bird's in the oven now.

After heavy rains last night (Sunday River), the snow was far better than I expected this morning.

Happy slicing... whatever you're using! Happy Thanksgiving!!

And what wax did you use on the turkey?

I carved a few turns here in Tremblant today. I was happy to ski, but the conditions are quite poor. The morning started with a little rain, then temperatures dropped and the nice soft spring mush turned rather hard and nasty. By 1:30PM I was cold and had enough.

There are only 5 slopes open (Tremblant says 9, but nobody knows WTF they are talking about) and only the top half of the mountain is open for skiing. It is all artificial snow, of course.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our US friends!
