    Video Another Thunderbolt Report (Sat, 1/15/11)



    Base had solidified to packed powder by late Saturday. Another 6" to a foot and it would be perfect. I'm wondering if Greylock got mostly snow out of the latest round of precip.

    It is so great to see the Thunderbolt gain popularity in the past decade. In the early 90's you could barely even hike up the trail from disuse. Do you have AT gear or did you hike in normal boots and swap for ski boots up top?

    I was considering heading up there this weekend, really like to hear about conditions now (and after tonight's storm), I hate to drive all that way to be iced out.

    Two wheels, two skis, two feet, whatever...

    I use AT gear. I've been sporting a pair of Garmont Mega Rides, and my skis have the G3 Onyx binding.

    I'm also wondering if they gained a pretty serious crust. From the looks of the snow report from Berkshire East (other side of the valley), they've been getting some snow though.

    Well, if my yard is any indicator, the crust is thin and easily breakable.
