    This one is really not a north south thing in New England.Its very much an east west thing with the storm tracking pretty much northerly and west of New England.Not good.

    12z Canadian is an absolute disaster for everyone. Pushing 60 degrees 8pm Friday night in central Vermont, then it's 28 degrees at 8am after all that rain and ice. Lets hope that one's night right. lol

    The cold air that could potentially invade and hopefully come to the rescue is coming from the north. But it may not make it in time to catch the precipitation that you noted is moving west/east'ish. If it does, it currently looks like it may only make it in time for those northernmost areas.

    Here's a gif I made of the GFS showing the cold air spilling down. My first attempt at making a gif!

    Want to fell better. This may not but I cancelled a trip to Vail on the 20th..and ate the 1600.00 bucks. Warm , all manmade, cold at night..icy groomers. Screw that. Going to Stowe, Smuggs, Jay. Will probably spend less on that whole trip than hanging around Vail for a week.
    Try skiing in the rain until it just plain sux. Get some runs in. The bubble lifts are a nice way to get up the hill. Make the best of it. Driving north is always an option if its better.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    You say this virtually every year.

    I've had a light start to my season due to injury and work commitments. Been out 6 days, all weekend days. 1 was poor, 2 good, 2 very good and 1 exceptional.

    50+" of snow in December for much of ski country with consistently cold weather is nothing to sneeze at. Lines that aren't skiable until late January were in play by 3rd week of December. November started a hair late, but by Thanksgiving had way above average acreage open for New England.

    I completely disagree that this has been a bad start to the season. I'll take a first two months like we just had every year.

    Yeah. I'm losing $2k for the lodging and lift tickets for the 3 of us. Makes me sick but going there will make me more miserable and cost even more. Would be happier at home doing things locally. Theres nothing of interest IMO in central Vermont. Cutting my loses.

    Gotta say I'm surprised there are people on this forum that would rather lose thousands of dollars than ski in the rain or on a little bit of ice. Can't say I have ever regretted going on a ski trip, regardless of the snow of weather conditions. My advice is go and you'll be happy you did.

    I agree with this. I have 15 days skiing and most have been pretty good. R@!^ is coming later this year than last. With last year it was great up to Christmas then it got shitty for a few weeks. This year the R@!^ is almost 3 weeks later. The cold only kept me from skiing 1 day so far this year and I am a weekend warrior.
