    Can't ditch work this week. That's why Platty is ideal because they won't be open to get all blasted out.

    Yea, that's a big consideration.

    But in case the snow/rain line is less than ideal for Platty, keep in mind Magic is another weekend-only place (and Pico only opens from Thursday on). Those are options for the weekend warriors.

    I love Platty, but Gore is a substantially better hill in terms of terrain. Will be hitting Gore on Saturday, fingers crossed that the woods will be open after this.

    I wish but it aren't going to happen. 1) the roads will probably be a mess and it'll take ages to get there. 2) I can't afford another day off. I'm taking the whole week off next week.

    Why does the storm come the week I'm not going to be around? Wish it came last week. But I really shouldn't complain. I got a day in on my xc ski yesterday in the Berkshires. Pancake for lunch then more skiing again...

    And I'm going to Montana Saturday. Poor me.

    Plattty is officially not opening today for a powder day today. It is on their home page, hopefully some A zoners get to enjoy white snowy trails Friday, I need to hear trip reports please.
    They are not opening today. Platty didn't get the snow amount of 10 inches they were expecting last night. On their website this morning it said they were opening but now they are not. Looks like a great powder day there this Friday.
