    I heard Whiteface was OK today. Wanted to go but the roads were such a bad mess would have taken forever to get there. Can anyone confirm?

    When I checked Okemos webcam around 1pm the orange bubble lift was stopped and waving around in the wind.

    Football, mountain biking, and beer is on the agenda this weekend. MTB trails should be frozen up quite nicely by tomorrow morning. Glorious.

    Quick Jay Peak report.

    Received 3-4 inches of snow which was the lower ranger of most forecasts. Disappointing. The mountain skied quite well in the morning but damage was extensive. Many open streams and some very exposed runs are not fully covered anymore. The woods held up well especially higher up the mountain. By mid day, snow stopped and runs got scraped-up rapidly. Hard stuff with small mounds of soft snow.

    Ain't going to be great till we get another 12 inches.

    I confirm. Whiteface was great today.

    Driving up last nite was horrible. Heavy rain was ok, but the fog was so thick i couldn't see 5 feet in front of me. I was mostly driving based on reflectors on the sides of the highway and lane marking.

    Switch over to snow happened around midnite to 1am. Woke up to about 4" but definitely around 5-6" on the trails. And it snowed most of the day until about 3.

    It was decent. A tale of two mountains. Everything from the base to midway skied very nice, but the summit was icy and not worth it. Plus the summit lift was slow & COLD today. Snowfall was a little disappointing as they only got 6"and I was hoping for 10". Stopped snowing around 2pm. No woods are open. Should be a nice day tomorrow, but COLD, not making it out of the negatives until late in the day. The town looks beautiful with the fresh snowfall.

    Sorry for your misfortune. Did you overthink things? Is there a lesson you've learned that you'd share with the rest of us -who have or will go down the same path?
