Skied at Timberline 12/30/07. Only 2 runs open. No snow. Not their fault, it was 50 degrees and raining. We had fun that one day but spent some $$ to stay for 4 days. Drove down to Snowshoe on the 31st and it looked like winter...a little too snooty for our tastes though. Sooooo.....loved the atmosphere at Timberline, very down to earth. Drawback is lack of extensive infrastructure to make tons of snow.
