Well I convinced Wifey to take MLK Monday off and make a three-day ski weekend, and we booked a room at Joe Dodge Lodge for Saturday and Sunday night. I immediately questioned my decision, after the dumping that western MA got. However, we made an early start of it on Saturday morning and headed up the Alexandria.
Snow depth wasn't great, but enough. As a prior poster had noted, there were snow snakes, lurking.

Today we did a few hours of touring at the Great Glen Ski Center.
