    Switched over to all snow (and coming down fast, for now at least) around 2pm at about 500' elevation in the Hanover area.

    Morning was an unpleasant mess, though.

    Finally, something seems to be lining up. Think I'm going to give Burke a shot with how this is looking.

    They're finally got their lift fixed, spinning tomorrow at 8AM according to my inbox.

    Only one run open off the main lift for now, storm tomorrow night ought to help.

    Roundabout, Helter Skelter, and Racer's Edge are worth mentioning as well. Roundabout is probably the trail that's the narrowest overall run.

    K-1 operates way more hours a year (much longer ski season operations, summer operations, etc). Mechanically, those cabins have a lot more abuse on them.

    Good reply from the mountain. While it would have been better to get something like that out there sooner, I'm glad to see it now.

    Yeah it was, I was just so drenched by the early afternoon that I had to call it quits. Wish I'd brought my hiking rain gear instead of ski gear.



    I'd never thought about that before, but...

    This weather has been the worst in about 25 seasons too, and this week's weather isn't great either.
