    Where are you going this weekend? I'm thinking Bolton Valley.. preacher/playground is open and I have passes to use there. If money was no object I'd probably head to Mt Ellen.


    edit:



    Just realized I have 2-for-1 at Burke thru Mountain Sports Club. Coupon printed. Burke says they will possibly be at 100% for Saturday. Love that mountain!

    Pico now. Whiteout and 2 hours of squalls and whatever has fallen lately is on the side 20-30' of trails in 2'+ drifts. Absolutely amazing.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    Supposed to ski Snow or Stratton Monday. Thinking of moving it to Wednesday.

    I fear Monday will be frigid with miserable conditions.

    Agree? Will Wednesday be significantly better?

    A couple extra passes with the grooming tractor surely won't hurt. Some snow will be made as well. Sounds like a good idea to me.

    The biggest issue with Sunday is the timing of when the Arctic front, with the plummeting temps and BIG winds arrives. If it's after lunch, it could be a decent, albeit likely a bit damp, of a morning. If the front goes through not long after 1st chair, you'd be looking at an ugly situation with lifts going on wind hold and the snow setting up (and likely the roads too) quickly - it's all about the timing...

    I'm going to be at Sunday River Tuesday. Really hoping that they recover quickly. Monday should be very not good though I think. Wednesday will be significantly better assuming the resort has the desire to make any snow and or spend a lot of time grooming. Any natural stuff is going to take a little longer than that to recover though...

    Smuggs Saturday or if roads and time are not on my side may just end the trip at Bolton. Although that hill up to Bolton can be interesting...

    Sunday if it stops raining early enough may hit Pats peak for a few runs or just watch the Pats game
