    Wachusett 11/15/19

    Simply put, best conditions I've ever seen on opening day here. Soft snow and not many people. More to come. Just wanted to throw a few pictures in.

    Decided not to head to K today. Roads sound like shit and it's not worth dealing with to get to 1-3" of snow on top of ice. Oh well, 3 days till closer skiing.

    Unless the extra drive time is more than a few minutes, I'd go to SR. If I had the option Tuesday I would go there but K will do.

    Me too. Also Burlington NWS discussion says higher peaks have a chance for up to 1 foot Tuesday. Would love some Northstar or Great Bear laps on day 1.

    Would be huge if they got TTB by the end of the weekend. If Tuesday overperforms it opens the door for trails like Northstar.

    Quite a bit of blowback on Facebook from them saying weekends only, and even lying about it being their historical operating schedule when it's not.
