Thread: Wind Holds?

  1. #1

    Question Wind Holds?

    NOAA says 37-40 mph West winds on Mansfield for tomorrow. Will this keep the quad from running? The lift doesn't go all the way to the top of the nose and is a little protected.

    I don't want to reload my pass today only to show up for wind holds in the AM.

    Any opinions from those who have experience at Stowe?

    They had reported wind gusts of 125mph on top of Mansfield yesterday. The only lift that was on wind hold was the Sensation quad over on Big Spruce. All other scheduled lifts were spinning. There are no guarantees, I'm just saying.

    That's music to my ears steamboat! I saw the high winds yesterday. I think if it was coming from any other direction it would be a different story.

    I'll skin if I have to but I have the flu and would prefer the lift.

    On the positive side I think I saw Mt. Snow was supposed to pick up a decent helping of snow.

    You getting out this weekend Scotty?
