    As far as this being a bad start to the season...I view it two ways. From a cold and snowy perspective, it's been good. From the ability for the areas to do well with Holiday and weekend crowds (Christmas/MLK)...no such a great start.

    Edit: Weather commentary:

    What a mess this will be. Rain...followed by some really cold temps. Should make just about everything solid.

    The Mt Washington Obs. imo has a very reliable forecast unfortunately.Here is theirs through Sat morning.Uhhg!
    By early Thursday morning, temperatures will climb above the freezing mark at all elevations, resulting in plain rain throughout the White Mountains Region along with thick summit fog as warmer air traverses the deep snowpack. Winds will pick up rapidly through the overnight hours as well thanks to transitioning systems and a tightening pressure gradient over New England, with sustained winds falling just shy of hurricane force. Dreary conditions will prevail through the day Thursday with some breaks in fog possible at times as the region falls in a warm sector with pockets of drier air occasionally mixing in. The mercury stays on the increase through the day with the warmest levels being reached in the afternoon in the 40s. With strong winds transporting warm fog over the snowpack, significant melting will occur which will combine with continued rain showers to cause substantial trail runoff and possible flooding in neighboring ravines. Plumes of tropical moisture will feed into New England by the conclusion of the forecast period, resulting in heavier rainfall by the wee hours of Friday morning which will continue into the weekend

    The 12z Euro caved to the other models and came east.

    EDIT: Seriously though, this does have me feeling a tiny bit better as it gives me hope that additional data digestion is perhaps seeing a trend. East movement = good.

    That would be awfully nice.

    I've been anxiously awaiting tonight's 00z runs for a few days now, that will be what drives my hotel booking (or not) decision.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Mind you, I didn't say that this was a bad start. I just said that it wasn't a good start. There is a difference. I realize that the snow has been ample, but there have been weekend days that I, personally, am not interested in skiing. Last weekend's cold is an example. Different strokes for different folks.

    All the rivers down here are pretty frozen. Hoping for not too much liquid / heat . Could be rough for flooding?

    They are up to 109 trails..better than the 35 they had. Guess they are blowing the hell out of the place. Not much falling from the sky.
