Northstar didn't have much terrain open on thanksgiving... but at least they had their park open!
Kirkwood yesterday was AWESOME! haven't been there in a good 3 years, but it's still pretty sweet... even without fresh powder. The snow there was much lighter than at northstar. but, they didn't have a park open.
ski-and-snow-report showed both northstar and kirkwood having a 36" base... it definitely didn't feel like 36" at northstar. there were WAY too many grassy fields viewable... kirkwood, on the otherhand, felt like a true 36"
