Somebody could snag some turns early Saturday morning. Our buddy MadPatSki has a monthly ski streak going where he hasn't missed skiing in any month for something like four years. October is one of the tough months to keep the streak alive. I'm sure he'll be eyeing up this system.
So ... submit an exclusive, publishable TR to Harvey Road, that documents legitimate New York State turns anytime in the month of October 2010, for a chance to win your choice of a single day lift ticket to Gore Mountain or a full ski-tune at the Gear Source in North Creek.
If there are multiple entries that qualify, the best TR as judged by the HR staff, will be the winner. Deadline is noon on Nov 2. Send submissions to: email@example.com.
TR has to include 3 publish worthy pics and 200 words. We get to decide if a TR is worthy, but if you got out and earned it, and can prove it, we'll deliver the swag.
If you really have no use for either of those prizes, and your TR is noteworthy enough to be published, I will try to work with the winner to figure something else out in the Northern Adks or elsewhere in NY.
Can anyone say ... dawn patrol on the Whiteface auto road?

There wasn't snow all the way to the base of WF, so you would have to hike out. At the Toll Road, you could ski the whole way.
It's a much more consistent, mellow pitch on the Toll Road. MUCH easier to hike than WF.
The Toll Road is flat. No bumps/ditches/rocks to beat you or your skis up. You only need about a 5" base to ski the toll road without ruining your skis.
