    Wherever you go, it will be epic. All we need is a foot-15in of snow for all glades to be skiable. All of Vermont and New Hampshire is getting at least a foot, so go where your heart desires.

    I saw the lifts were down today. Who knows what the winds will bring tomorrow at all of the resorts. I will be packing my skins.

    Exactly my concern. Why drive further then I need to for phenomenal skiing tomorrow?

    I was kind of being sarcastic, saying he's over thinking, then posting a comment about moisture content.

    Anyways, I'm not worried about glades in So VT at all. Magic posted a video with a patroller saying they'll likely be 100% open tomorrow.
    I also do the Twitters.

    Magic Ski Patrol on video today said Mtn will be 100% open tomorrow.

    I agree a few inches on a base is better than a foot on nothing... But I think wherever you go will be great tomorrow or in the next several days.

    I will ski woods with barely any snow happily my only problem is when they aren't open.

    FYI- as of about 5:15PM as i'm posting this, So VT hasn't had as much snow as No VT today- Mount Snow today has had maybe 1-2" total, and the wind has started to blow pretty solidly the last few hours. I was on demo Blizzard Cochise's today and frankly even on a pair of skis that AREN'T mine I wasn't even considering any natural trails or trees today, there was just generally more visible grass + dirt + rock than snow on them today

    This storm will help for sure but the way the wind is likely going to move the snow around there will still be places that will likely be blown all the way off to the ground. Just being honest!

    Also both from what I saw on my drive North last night and what I've seen on the hill today and in the parking lots of various residencies and hotels here, lots of people "pre positioned" last night! It was close to a usual Saturday crowd today! Glad as a passholder, I get access to the Bluebird Express tomorrow AM 30 min before the general public does! FRESHIES!!!

    Skied at Mt Ellen today. Most natural snow trails still closed as there was 6-8 inches of fluff on top of a thin base. Upper mountain very windblown. More snow still needed before woods are good to go - or look for where the snow has blown in

    I would strongly disagree. A foot of snow on bare or nearly bare ground (dry snow at that) won't do much on high angle glades....well except hide a potential disaster. Also, what is up with the use of the word epic? 12-18" of snow is not Epic, especially for early February.
