    The Elk-cam shows real snow is besting the snow guns once again. That's twice in a week.

    Owing to perspective, from age and experience. If I were like 60 years younger yes maybe it would be. Pic below is what I saw, webcam view has now changed. Nice to see top to bottom snow of the natural variety.

    When I posted the camera was from the base boardwalk, next to the ticket window. It had a full top to bottom view.

    Friday, Nov 8, 2019. I notice Elk's webcam is online, and is showing actual, real, not-man-made snow top to bottom. Not skiable of course, looks like an inch or two in depth but still a good sign for the coming season.
  7. 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?

    Other than thawing frozen water pipes, what does one do when 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.
  10. The pictures of your place are very cool to see.
  11. 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
  12. One points their browser here: http://www.skipa.com/play/resort-cams This along with with the real-time highway cameras here means you can see snow conditions very clearly: http://www.511pa.com/Cameras.aspx

    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.
  14. 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.

    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.
  16. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.

    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?

    Rummy, you have a lifestyle worthy of envy going on there.

    That is what you expect the inside of a ski chalet to look like.
