I no longer go on Facebook, because unlike here (or the High Peaks forum) they take your personal information and turn it around to advertisers. They also now manipulate what you see from others (like Twitter) so it's not really just a service. They're making billions off people's personal conversations.

(I don't use Google either.)

And it's at this point in the conversation I feel compelled to pimp the DuckDuckGo search engine.

Not tele...AT. About ten years ago I gradually transitioned to earning my turns. I always preferred ungroomed stuff, and eventually only skied bumps and trees, but even that at lift served areas was disappointing. So now, I only ski lift served in years like this or when the natural snow is bullet proof. In the backcountry, every run is fresh, and I particularly enjoy the uphill effort and the quiet woods.

Johnny - Thanks for taking the time to post the photos.

Tabe - Thanks for letting us know about your trip. I've been gone since late last week and didn't mean to hijack your post regarding Facebook.

Justin and everyone else - Thanks for your comments. I guess for me I spend enough time on a computer each day with work that I'd like to keep it down as much as possible. I'm not anti-Facebook as much as I'm looking to spend less time on-line. If that means I don't get to see someone's photos, well that's on me; not them. That being said, I have been told that Facebook has a public setting of some kind that allows non-Facebook members to view photos. If a person posting a report will use that feature, it's definitely appreciated. If not, that's OK too. It's their choice and I can respect that.

That's all for now. Take care everyone and until next time...be well.

My FB account is set up as Public but I think you still need an account to access.
