I take the lifts lol

The peak that is centered in the photo is Cowboy Mtn.

If you look closely near the top you can see a traverse line near the top.

If you follow it to the right side of the mountain, that is where 7th heaven lift dumps you out.

From there you can hike to the top of cowboy, or ride down to the base.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it

Welcome to Perfect North in Lawrenceburg IN where the time spent in the lift line is longer than it takes to get down the run...


I have fun there, and like I said before it does help prepare me for somewhat for the big mountains. I did discover at the big mountain last year that my boots were not up to snuff. Someday when I am good at this I can say see what I had to work with...

I had friends that laughed at me when I bought a snowboard. After I showed them the pictures from the trip out west last season they weren't laughing so much any more....

I saw that Tyrol Basin west of Madison WI was making snow to open on Nov 9th but the temps got to warm. If it cools down again, they will fire up the machines again.
"With a warm-up predicted beginning Sunday, we will NOT be open on Tuesday, Nov 9. Check snow report for updates concerning next weekend."

They are trying to open some limited runs Nov 13th, if they do the kids and I are there.
They are opening not all runs and not all lifts running Gonna try to go this weekend!!!!!

Think this is last year's photo but not sure photo was created 11-9-10 could be this year

how long after they start snow making, does it usually take for the resort to open?

Before I checked the website...
I'd be really surprised if Hidden Valley opened before Christmas...

After I checked the website
Well, damn, it's opening on the 18th according to the calendar.

Hidden Valley is definitely better than nothing, but it's still hard to accept. I started a club at my school and the first question is always "Where the hell do you guys snowboard?"
Followed usually by looks of pity.
Ah well, there's the spring trip for those ungrateful bastards.

Typically HV opens about the second week of December every year. Around here it will be up and down temps and then all of sudden it's highs of 25 to 30 and stays that way. Once it is cold they build up a base pretty quick.

Haha, I know about the crazy weather. I mean, hell, it's almost the middle of november and we're having temps in the 70's.

Debating getting a season pass, but I think I'll wait till next year since I'm doing a winter and spring trip this season.

I looked at some of the hills you guys mentioned here. Have you all been out West to ride? You guys must lose your shit when you see how things are in the rockies?

I couldn't believe it after riding in Colorado after having only ridden in Australia.

So many runs so little time.
