    Take it with a grain, or two, of salt. Mountainforecast, usually wrong, but calling for over 25" at elevation at Whiteface. Probably be on windhold, they usually are after big dumps.
    Ha, just noticed Scotty in the lower right corner, Messenger icon.

    If it's raining on the slopes, Okemo, with its 2 bubble lifts, is one of the better places you can be....

    Non frozen on Friday looks unavoidable in general. Now whether there is a block of time where none is falling and you can get out, is a game day situation.

    Saturday is questionable and a close call for Okemo area. Cold air is moving in from the West/NW, so odds are higher for frozen precip in the Whiteface and Gore areas. But there are some models that show it changing to snow on Saturday in SoVt, and I hope that is the case because that is where I will be!

    Their forecast for Killington is similar. Something to keep an eye on anyway..

    I agree the bubble lifts should make it passable for a few laps, since you already bought the tickets.

    Okemo also has an ice rink so you can still slide around on frozen liquid. A trip to Singleton's General Store in Proctorsville is always worth it. The sign out front reads, "Whiskey, Guns, Ammo" and they have the best smoked meats in the area. What more do you need? You could also drive south on Route 100 down to Weston for a trip to the general stores there. Another great place to kill a few rainy hours with the kids.

    At the moment, with what we know, New Hampshire is not where you want to be, although yes, the farther north in NH the better from 2pm'ish Saturday on with snow. If you could ski anywhere this weekend and had to pull the trigger now, Jay Peak or Whiteface would be the choices based solely on the models. That said, if the Euro is correct, canceling is probably the best option. The fist model runs post the energy reaching land will be critical.

    EDIT: Just noticed the 12z has initialized. No whammys.....move eastward....no whammys.... STOP!

    EDIT2: Ummmmm....well..... lets hope the 12z GFS run is wrong, because it's way worse than the last 2 runs and it's soul-sucking for MLK weekend.

    That's not a real forecast, that a pcp depiction turned into a snow forecast via automation, which will always be wrong in a case like this because it "sees" sleet and freezing rain as snow, so it's WAY overdone on the snow total because right now the models show a lot of freezing rain and sleet for Whiteface.
