That sounds pretty cool. Here in Niagara we don't get enough snow for BC skiing... and in this quasi-maritime microclimate whatever we get usually doesn't stay around to accumulate. Being on the western side of Lake Ontario we rarely see any lake effect events.

Not only that, but the only respectable slope is the Niagara escarpment which is maybe 250-300ft vert... mostly on private property. I've scouted it on a good snow year along the Bruce Trail and the coverage wasn't even close to cover the deadfall... And that's what you can see. It's what you can't see that's most scary!
