    Went both days this weekend and had a great time. Conditions Saturday were pretty great throughout the day with snow throughout most of the day. Yesterday was harder, faster and colder. Still fun though.

    Who makes the call on that though? Is that actually what is happening? Hopefully not.

    Its not confirmed by any official source, but the NH areas with the exception of maybe Wildcat has seen pretty drastically reduced operations this fall/winter.

    In one of the coldest Novembers in recent history Attitash pushed back its opening date and claimed this November had been tough.

    Crotched kept pushing back its opening and giving minimal information also claiming bad weather (the 12" Tuesday storm would be all rain they said, and also a 'warm' November). When Crotched did open it was with a paltry amount of trails open (1.5ish) given the days and days of temps in the single digit and teens leading up to their opening. Also this was Crotched 4th latest opening since it reopened 14 years ago. There have been falls way worse than this one and they still got open. Somethings not right.

    Given that Crotched was so spotty with their information, I think the reality was that they didn't even know and the decision was coming down from higher up in Peaks.

    I agree that doesn't sound or look good. I doubt anyone here posting from the MountSnow account will know or be able to shed any light on it though.

    I have nothing against the Mt Snow folk whom seem to be using the allocated funds as would anyone more so the Peaks higher ups who make the decision on distribution of funds.
