    Waiting and hoping for Snowbird to get some base before the beginning of March!

    18z NAM just finished running and it looks a bit better too. It would make Jay Peak "safe" for the weekend if it verified. Sunday would be a powder day on that run.

    You really think the snow in the East is going to be better after Friday? Guess it depends on if we get a storm next week but if everything natural gets wiped out we're going to be in exactly the same boat as Vail, except they won't have gotten flooded in the interim.

    Not that i go by long range forecasts but the weather at stowe starting the 20th is saying snow all week..how they even try to predict that is a mystery to me..it would really suck if it didnt..the base is going to be ..titanium.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Still not entirely good. But at least it's closer to being good.

    No certainly at the moment due to tight gradients, could be anything from "I wish I cancelled and stayed home" bad, to "this is really fun" good.

    Not sure where you're looking, but anything after 5 days is automation. When you see those forecasts that got out 10 days like that, it's not done by a human being, and it's highly likely to be incorrect.

    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.
    Fair enough. You did say "us", so I took that as your opinion for all weekend skiers. As a weekend skier, I disagree. Sunday wasn't all that cold after 11. Snow was great. Sorry you missed out.

    Be thankful it's not 3-4 years ago when you had virtually no natural and the Qs weren't blowing crap.

    58 inches for the season..thats like Stowes base
    back bowls and blue sky all closed. Hope my time in VT is better. Would be funny if my wife calls me and says its dumping while shes there.
    You think Vail can blow snow on 109 trails? You are kidding I hope. They do not have that kind of coverage. If they are up to 109 trails, many of those are natural only.
