    Super Hydrophobic spray at Home Depot

    Looks pretty amazing DZrjXSsfxMQ besides the obvious applications of waterproofing clothing and whatnot, I wonder what would happen if you spray this on the bottom of the skis, how about on water skis or a kayak?

    03/21/2013 Pat's Peak Night

    Just a quick report, no pix. Brought my daughter out for a couple hours. Still soft wintery surfaces on anything with pitch. Flats got a bit cooked and refrozen, but not bad for this time of year. Hurricane has bumps and some icy patches and some powder spots still, skied pretty well though...

    Loon Mt. 01/13/2013

    Loon Mt. 01/11/2013 Afternoon at Loon had mostly packed powder with some scraped/windblown spots that still had some grip. Avoided the Gondola and went back and forth between Kanc and North Peak. Some bumps building on several runs. No melting today, was even a sleet shower.

    Steepest Night Skiing Trail in NE

    Pat's Peak says in their snow report that Hurricane is the steepest night skiing trail in NNE. I believe that. My question is what's the steepest in all NE? Guesses are Whitetail at Jiminy or Gunbarrel at Sundown? Maybe there's something else? Anyone know?

    Sunapee 12/14

    Got out for the afternoon. They just had one run each from their quad chairs. Blastoff had a good amount of loose granular on top of hardpack. Wingding was mostly just hardpack. I didn't check south peak. Was basically empty out there, but still managed to get skied off by last chair...
