    Hard to say, but they're getting a few inches tonight, something slated for Wednesday, and now hearing talk about a Saturday storm. So even if there isn't a huge dump, the skiing should be nice.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Also- does anyone know a reliable ski rental shoo that's decently priced with good equipment? I have to rent gear when I get in Friday night.

    There aren't too many options there. The Mtn might have some decent rentals and I'm sure the shop up there has demos (http://www.sugarloaf.com/pricing-and...s/retail-shops), but you might want to rent locally and bring them up with you.

    Agree on the Bag and Rack..but another option:
    Tufulios restaurant & PUB(more restaurant than snack place), ~3-5mi south from the access road(on the main road from Kingfield(#16/#27))...good food and pub stays open late(I ThInK)...
    __________________________________________________ _______________________
    Happy Tunes...underneath Tufulios is, I believe, open 7am-10am(?) & 2-8pm. Rentals/Demos..but good quality..(207) 235-8863. Always had a bunch of used skis(verygood--to--topskin chipped) forsale too.

    Not sure what time the SL Ski Shop stays open until....but can often find some pretty good skis to demo for the mountain.

    The SL Shop in Kingfield(not sure on times) also does/did pretty good quality rentals/demos...(207) 237-6986, 237-6946...

    Think both Happy Tunes and the shop in Kingfield will be a little cheaper than the SL Skishop...(my guess).
