    This past weekend there was bupkis - less than bupkis - on that trail. This photo taken two weeks ago show how bad it is.

    Too bad they make snow and make this a single fall line trail. Looks like it would be a nice double fall line.

    Overall, this is very depressing: http://madriverglenweather.blogspot....-how-much.html

    I've resigned myself to the likelihood that there will be no late season turnaround, and that 2015-2016 will go down as one of the worst ever for the East. What's disturbing about it is not knowing to what extent it's been caused by the inherent variability of weather patterns, or to what extent the strength of this El Nino is at all related to g----l w-----g. I'm NOT trying to bait anyone or to start a debate. I'm just saying for ME, that's what makes this season not just a disappointment, but a frightening harbinger of things to come. In short, a world without skiing, except for maybe the uber rich who can afford lift tickets at the last remaining resorts.

    You said it: ONE of the worst ever. Snowless winters have happened before and will happen again.

    Don't despair.

    One good week can erase all the bad memories and make the 2nd half solid

    And last season there were those saying this would be the new pattern of winters in NE. It's all cyclical and there may be SOME variation in the extremes there will be many more NORMAL NE winters in between.

    The realist in me says that we aren't going to get a major turnaround until at best the latter part of February. Even if we get a decent snowstorm next week, it really is just going to replace the damage that this massive thaw has done. We will be back to trails that are marginal to have open. And we will quickly be in mid-February praying for another storm to give us the snow that we really need.

    As frustrating as this is, we've had a couple of great years before this year. So it's hard to complain too much.

    If youre livlihood depends on snow to come then i totally feel for you. As a recreational skier youre gonna need patience and just hope it comes as frustrating as that may be. It came in spring of 07 and maybe it will, maybe it wont. Go ride bikes, play golf or whatever your non skiing activities are. It will be ok.
