The webcams are up, showing the first snow for this season!

It's time to renew your PACCSA membership, dust off your ski gear and get ready to join the fun next weekend.

Thanks to Bob Mazur and Jim South for getting the cams up and running once again, and thanks to everyone who has contributed to the webcam expenses (hardware, phone connection, website hosting).
