It would be a lot better if the big snow was coming to the west shore of Lake Michigan, rather than the west shore of Lake Ontario. At least for where my skis slide

Well... it fell a little short of "epic". Actually, it turned out to be a pretty typical March snowstorm. 8 or so inches of medium sticky, temp about 30 at dawn this morning. I scaled my ambitions accordingly. I fired up my ever trusty 1968 Gravely snowblower at 0600 (WAKE UP, EVERYBODY, IT'S A BEEE-A-YOOO-TI-FULL DAAAAAAY!), cleared the drive, achieved proper caffeination and opted for the local ski hill for all the usual reasons (proximity, adequate snow...). I got a couple of runs in before the lifts opened (I think I was the 3rd set of tracks down the blue), then a few more (all on skins, rahhhh!) and got as good as it was going to get today (as they say, better 'n a day at the office...). Quit while I was ahead.
