No snow in Van, but 104 inch base at Whistler. In fact there was 13 feet in November - did G'stock open for Thanksgiving? Didn't think so. Oh, and me, from a state without a rope tow had a great time - you did, well, no skiing. Don't try to be smart, it's unbecoming on you.
With over 40 years of least coast experience, I moved because, well, it wasn't worth staying around for the winter, as this year again proves.
Have a little hissy fit about it while you're in Tahoe - TAHOE, but my god, you've got NH right outside you door - thanks for making the case better than anyone could have. Mr. NH goes west to (really) ski - go figure.
