Default Snow making begins in the midwest!

My local ski hill has begun making snow! My season is more about the trips but this place helps me get ready for those...Looks like the end of Nov to mid december before they will be ready, just as long as we don't have any warm spells...

Yeah, it what we have though...Thanks to that hill I was able to go to telluride last year (first trip out west) and have a good time. It is funny, verticle drop is 400 ft, longest run is one mile...and you better keep your speed on the 1 mile or you will be pushing lol. One of the days I will be able to move out there...

your one up on us. They aren't even making snow here yet and our hills aren't much better.
But riding is riding right guys, might not be mountains or powder but like you, it is what we have.
Still having fun,

Wow, seems a bit ambitious. It's going to be above 60 the next few days here in Ohio. But yeah, this forum is dominated by people who ride mountains. Us midwesterners ride what we got, and we like it! :-P

It is alittle ambitious but hey, they gotta start sometime. As long as the snow stays on the slopes and off the roads I'll be happy.

im quessing thats perfect north? me and my buds go to paoli, its closer to paducah. we rode PN once last year, i really didnt think it was any better than paoli. im stoked to see some snow on the ground though! paoli is projecting dec 18 as their opening day. i hope you have a good season and shred up the mountains when you head out west. were going west in april or march so were gonna do like you do and burn up our season passes on the little hills to get us ready.

The first picture is perfect north. I have not been to paoli but plan to give it a shot this year, most of my buds that ski and snowboard say perfect north is better, more runs, a little bigger vertical drop and they stay up on the snow making better. This others opinions. I will keep an I on paoli snow reports will go when it is good, not icey and give you my opinion. PN is 2 hours from me, and Paoli is 55 minutes, I hope I have the same opinion as you, the shorter drive would be nice.

The 2nd picture is from snow shoe, I think it is the basin side, the longer bigger runs are on the Western territory, they didn't have a picture of those, they are usually the last runs they get open.

Currently 50 in St Louis with a high of 76. Our 310ft hill won't be getting any snow for a while. Sometime in the season I will be at Paoli since my friend has family there and I get a discount on tickets.
