    I was worried last night as it was still raining at 10pm but woke up to a lot of snow and still going at Whiteface. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Sorry to have to report that SoVT is an utter disaster. Flooding to Freezing rain to sleet to just a little bit of snow and now 14 degrees 2,300' and very windy. From a skier visit perspective this year is having a horrendous start. All eggs in the President week basket.

    I hope I am here when Mother Nature decides to deliver a payback storm.

    My wife's report from Mount Snow this morning... Lots of snow loss, but the snowmaking trails, VISUALLY from our condo across the valley from the mountain, look to have held up. After an extended morning coffee with ski friends in the base lodge waiting for Ego Alley chair to get de-iced and open, they walked over to Ego, saw another friend who had just come down and said that it was ugly now, and needs another couple of passes from the snow cats to till up the frozen chunks, she then put her skis back into ski check and went back to our condo.... Tons of snowmaking going on. Big winds though.

    Gotta be patient and give the mtn ops folks 24hrs to work their magic over a fickle mother nature!!

    As she texted me.... Quote of the day from one of our ski friends... "I sure hope they open the bar early today!!"

    Ive said this many times on days like this. Seems like a no-brainer.

    Glad I stayed home. Upsetting I lost the $$ but would have been more upset had I gone. Will have much more fun in sunny NJ today.

    Cancelled a weekend skiing with Scotty due to the dire forecast. Greek yesterday was some of the shittiest conditions I've ever skied. You would think it'd be soft beeing 60, but it was anything but, cupped and hard as a rock. I made 3 runs, and called it a day. Good thing, it started to spit a little on my last run, pouring by the time I left the bar for my car. My car was in a puddle, had to walk away from the car to take my boots off.

    So this morning I debated skiing McCauley, or Greek. After shovling about 4" off my driveway, I figured Greek should be good, it is, about 6". Enough to ski everything, with rock skis. They're back to square one on natural trails, they we torched, and drenched away yesterday.

    Scotty, sorry we didn't stick to our plans, but it was pretty bleak.

    So far I am not at all regretting my decision to not go up to VT this weekend.

    Ski Butternut today is an ice rink. However it's good to practice technic. Ice coast baby!

    Time to put our collective psychic energy into making this mid week storm happen big time.
