Can you say "Lake Effect"? The large temperature difference between the Great Lakes and the air allows the air to rise quickly, generate lots of lake effect snow.

Deerfield: 'nuther foot of snow to play with, well settled and worked in. 'nuther season of two weeks of ski days before thanksgiving... amazing.

Boyne Mountain: The lower trails have been rolled and are softer than I would have expected, given the warm temps yesterday. Cleared a bunch of branches and twigs that had blown down. I skated on rock skis, but the coverage was good and you could get by with good skis.
