It was quite an adventure. One that I will always remember. Skiing was pretty good too. Hoping that power gets to them soon.

Serious deadline issues at work, so I haven't completed my loooong TR.

Here is Matt's version of our adventure.

My version is so long boring...I had to cut it in two.

Here is the link to Part 1:
Frankenstorm Trick and Treat, West Virginia style – Part 1: Timberline, Oct 31, 2012
http://madpatski.wordpress.com/2012/11/ ... t-31-2012/

Still cleaning up the pics for Part 2 which includes White Grass, November 1.

PS. I would have skied this weekend and last, but things got in the way. Neil Young last night plus wife had stuff to do today. I'll be leaving for a late day-trip this afternoon. Its been cold and Tremblant opened on Thursday the top part of the mountain plus one run t2b. My Edelweiss is good at MSS, but again...I can't get away from stuff in and around the house. :( Always said the Fall is the worst for me.
