    Rain on Friday......Grrrrrr

    Ugh. Every year we go on a brief trip and Im taking my boys up to Okemo on Thursday night to ski on Friday and Saturday.........only to hear there will be mid 40temps and all rain on Friday.

    Cant cancel so someone please tell me something that makes me feel better. Any chance it may be colder on the mountain and not be rain? Id prefer the super cold than rain.

    Forecasts look bad for skiing. Wish you had some better weather for your trip. I can't go out this weekend either. I'm stuck on this farm with a broken tractor that I'll be fixin in the rain.

    Best wishes!

    Ski in the rain! It'll be better than you think. Just make sure your skis are waxed.

    I feel like the last 3 or 4 years, eastern ski areas have often been cursed with poor weather during many of the highest revenue weeks of the season. Stinks.

    Also waterproof clothing. Including a really waterproof ass, sitting on a wet lift sucks.

    Conditions are pretty decent when it's raining, snow is soft and trails are empty.

    Agreed. Between the cold from Christmas through last weekend...now this. I hope things turn around.

    Saturday in VT looks sketchy as well at this moment. Freezing R@!^. The northern whites look a little better with Snow on Saturday. Disclaimer -This could all change of course
