And, I beg to differ with you XC ski naysayers. An hour of hard XC skiing is definitely a ski day in my book. Uses a whole hell of a lot more muscle strength than lapping groomers for 3-4 hours, not to mention the mental health benefits of being alone or with a buddy in the woods.

I just added mine up for the season. Not bad considering we were working on a kitchen renovation (DIY) till just before New Years. I have at least 10 more days on my radar. Not bad for a working stiff. Not sure how I forgot Platty. Fixed it. Ski3 pass for me this year. Will get some days in Colorado as we are going out for USASA Nationals.
Nice Peter. Danzilla I thought you had some kind of fancy pass?
By some miracle it looks like I will get 30 days, 35 is always my goal.
Here's my list quoted from the first post. It's got most of what I look for lift-served, nordic, great birthday, pow and a new mountain. So far at least eight of my days have been incredible. And I DIG Magic.
