    Keep an eye on the weather. Today's snow will inspire a bunch to head for the slopes but the temperatures may keep them in the lodge.
    Quiver:Rossignol 9SL - 161 (SL carver)
    Rossignol WC GS - 181cm (GS carver)
    Rossignol Z10 - 162cm (Bumps, crud & park)
    Rossignol S7 - 178cm (Floater)

    For Saturday, if you really want to do something good, go to Braintree, and pick up the Nacski bus to Sunday River at 5 am if you are just doing a day trip.

    I'm contemplating Waterville on Monday as I have vouchers to redeem. I am blacked out Saturday and Sunday but they are valid Monday. But I may sit out this weekend as the person I go with doesn't like to ski in the cold.

    I think the weather will really drive the crowds on Saturday, so I think the mountains are really going to be packed crazy with day trippers. It could be a prime day for mountains to break some crowd records. I wouldn't be surprised of Saturday would be a day in which there's 10 minute waits to get on the Chondola; 15-20 for Barker even at Sunday River, but the good thing is that the mountain is spread out enough so that you can go to White Cap, N.P., or Oz to get away from the crowding. By Monday, everyone will decide to head home, or just have a few runs because it is too cold.

    I'll be at Magic for all 3 days. I don't expect to wait more than a minute or two for the red chair at any point over this weekend.

    Thanks, Dartmouth looks like a good possibility, too...

    We used to work MLK Day and get Patriot's Day off in my office but it was changed a few years ago. Actually would rather have the day off in April.

    Wawa on Sunday with my wife, her sister, and her sister's son (age 6). Pretty low key this winter. I'll be mostly sitting in the loge with my son while she takes a lesson

    It's OK ... an investment in our skiing future!
