I love it when its cold and slightly winding with snow that is just puking out of the clouds. Everyone goes inside and I get to have fresh tracks each and every run.

The best is those days that on your last run it lightens up for a moment and the sun comes out for your last run. Once you get to the bottom the the storm starts to re-energize and you know the next day will be powder too.

A good 25" lake effect puke is my favorite but that usually only happens once a year. Anything fresh is good for me.

Because its the deepest lake in the great lakes the temps hold and based on its position we here in the northeast get this...

Ontario is not deeper than Lake Superior in average depth nor deepest point. Not that that matters in what you were trying to say about Lake Effect snow...
