    Rain on Friday......Grrrrrr

    Ugh. Every year we go on a brief trip and Iím 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.



    Canít 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? Iíd 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!

    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.

    I braved the pouring rain last year only because my kids were all back in town. Was at Camelback last night spoke with one of patrol he said numbers this year have been down . They really could have used the weather this weekend. I'm curious though if the crowd will just go the indoor water park instead? The building has quite a light show on the roof at night .

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

    WTF? I went to Sunday River last year on MLK weekend and it sucked because they were coming off of a rain/thaw/freeze cycle. So of course I booked a 4 day weekend there again this year and thought I was looking good for this weekend up until a couple of days ago. Now I am looking at skiing in rain, then freezing rain, then it freezing up and skiing an ice rink for the last 2 days.

    So next year you're guaranteed a 20" storm on the Sunday of MLK weekend.

    That's what I was hoping for this weekend since last year was awful. I was hoping that I was "pre-disastered" last year and be OK now
