  1. Kintaro, have only been to Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole in WY. GT isnt actually that big of a resort, area-wise, and from what I recall seemed relatively tame. it seemed to be more a local area but the snow that day was out of this world.. aside from areas in Europe that are linked, etc, you're not going to find many places w/ the magnitude of terrain and the mountain itself at Jackson Hole. the place is huge. We went when it was a bad snow yr and almost half the area was closed..didn't get to ski down the whole left, bottom side though what was open was a lot of fun. you lay tracks where

  8. minor quakes have been hitting northern CA since Sunday morning over there (Sunday night over here). http://www.sacbee.com/state_wire/story/6735774p-7686930c.html The quakes that hit San Jose (3:01am, Monday and aftershocks), would have been just after the quake up in Tohoku. ..eery. Has anyone else noticed a rash of quakes it seems everywhere?
