    Great choice. I was there 2 wknds ago just before this last storm and the skiing was surprisingly good it should be even better for you. For eating out the country store in East Burke has breakfast and some amazing sandwiches. Dinner in Lyndonville, their are several choices the Lyndonville diner serves dinner great home cooking comfort food and Everyones rest. I think that's the name has the best French toast I've ever had there's others but can't remember the names.

    Track any pics of your day at Cannon?( I know you forgot your camera in the car)

    How about Burke?

    Did you meet up with Remski?

    No we tried but we never hocked up. My phone doesn't have service up there.
    My friend and I had an unbelievable day though, with some sweet glade runs with 10" of pow on them and a base to go with that. Of course the groomers we skiing excellently because of the expert grooming.
    Really wish we could have hooked up but to no avail.

    I could never ride a T-Bar with you.. The height difference would be awful.

    You would be almost sitting on the ground to ride with me or I would need platform ski boots to ride with you.I learned to ski riding a T-Bar at Jiminy Peak and I could never ride it with my older brother. I was too much shorted then he was.

    OK one more.  Jmaul wanted to see a moose but the menagerie at our lodging more than compensated.
