Don't let your yard fool you into sitting on your couch! There's some great winter conditions out there and not far from home. Now I'm not suggesting you grab your new skis and head out the door, but there was a reason you kept those old skis and this is it. Most of the area trails have been skied on and are in pretty good condition.
