    There's an old saying, when you own a ski house you have more friends than you ever realized.

    I worded this wrong, it came through in the entirely wrong context. Correction following in red. Other than thawing frozen water pipes, what does one do when one is staying at their mountain hideaway cabin and the local ski hill closes and the outside air temps are below zero, warm up the car and drive to the local watering hole(s), stay in and read a book?

I'm asking out of curiosity, not on account of my situation. Although I have been in the same predicament in VT/NE in the past.

    The pictures of your place are very cool to see.

    Looks like Golden, CO, as viewed from one of the mountain park roads to the southwest of the town. Maybe here or close by: https://goo.gl/YoQhNU

    Octoberfest

    Heard from a friend the Lift Inn put up a sign with their name on it, considering they had no sign for years that is a big improvement for them.

    18/19 Season Update

    Considering that one year they listed painting the floor boards in the picnic lodge as an annual improvement, this is pretty big. Maybe they got past re-painting the lines in the parking lot as something noteworthy.

    Octoberfest

    What are the local apres-ski watering holes/bars one could pop in after a day at Elk fest? I know Chet's, how about LIft Inn (if it hasn't fallen down yet), Candlelight, Arlo's and one more I can't remember.

    Elk Official Closing 4/1 4:30 PM

    The end of a season is always a mix of feelings, you know deep down the good times are fleeting and won't last. How many days did they go beyond the usual 100?

    I'm impressed. The pics you post of your place are so cool, no other word better describes it. Did it ever rain?

    Current conditions

    Having owned ski houses (or condos) in the past I'll say a few things. - When you have a ski house you have lots of friends, many you never knew about. - There's about a one or two year lag between when you acquire the house and when the list starts to grow exponentially. - sleepover is just an acronym for eat all his food and drink all his booze. - Freeloaders and guests are two different animals. I can spot the freeloaders a mile away.

    Current conditions

    In their defense yesterday the "snowfall past 24 hrs" showed 6-8 ins. Today it shows 0. No I'm not a fan of their website.

    PennDOT Cameras - How to tell if it's snowing across PA

    The cameras are very helpful this morning.

    Nice ot hear the skiing is good. I'm guessing that would be the SRBC, Susquehanna River Basin Commission. I heard they are still having a spat with the community that owns part of the bigger lake /pond they use as a water supply, maybe that is part of not having enough water?
