    My middle daughter skied Bromley today and was surprised how good it was and how mellow the crowds were. Likely due to cold forecast and lack of understanding of the powers of the Bromley sun.

    True. That said, one can give a warning that a storm is coming with a potentially unfriendly track resulting in at least some mixing - which has been the norm this winter. But too far out for...

    This storm had little icing risk, and any risk was for minor amounts, way less than last week. From here on out they should be clear of ice. Cold on the other hand is coming.

    Epic or not, that's crazy. Strange, but if you go to Vail on a family vacation you almost want to root against a big dump so you can actually get some skiing in!

    Models have been trending better. Too early to conclude anything, especially about the seconds storm Thur night into Friday. But a back side thump is a valid scenario.
