    Blue Mountain, Ontario.

    I've skied some slop before, like skiing in a Slurpee. No good. I was just curious how fast conditions might deteriorate with the warm up.

    Yeah. I guess I'm just panicking, because we've had the typical thaws, and they seem to always hit on or right before a weekend, never at the beginning of a week when there is time to recover.

    If it was a thaw/freeze scenario, I'd be concerned. With just a mild thaw scenario (and no unfrozen precip falling from the sky), I wouldn't worry about needing recovery time. Depending on how quickly temps drop Sunday night it might be just starting to firm up a bit at the time you go.

    This is what I've been looking for! Thanks. I'm also taking note of the "busy" answers. Last Saturday was very mild, and it was indeed busier than usual.

    I agree with predictions of business.
    Pick your poison - place with high lift capacity but crowded trails but maybe avoid long waits, or smugglers madgic river notch and spend most of the day standing in line but less traffic on the snow...

    The traffic on 87 (aka the ski road in winter) is horrendous tonight, so yeah, places will be packed. Every other vehicle has a Thule, Yakima, or knock-off ski rack

    Can't say I'm surprised. I'd love to be in VT this weekend but I just can't deal with those crowds. Oh well.
