It was all over the skiheavenly.com site until Friday: the season was to open on 11/18!!! That didn’t happen, although the snowmakers are pretty busy. Now the opening date is set to Thanksgiving. If that happen, there is going to be one sick puppy that is going to be in heaven(ly)! I am already thinking of bringing a turkey sandwich to the slopes. Or maybe I should break down and finally buy the turkey jerky I always stared at in the supermarket.

Sad, sad, sad. Last year, the snowpack at Thanksgiving was considerable (I was there!). The day after Thanksgiving, indeed, I was on the snow and was having a great time! That was before snowboarding, so I was still on the silly planks. But this year, it’s been too dry and hot, so no snow yet in Tahoe. I assume this might become a bad season, overall, considering that El Nino is usually followed by La Nina.
