    BC ...NO lift lines! If this is the big one everyone who hasn't skied yet will be out. Get off the lift ski 300' and get in line again!

    If this goes north, I'll simply ski Plattekill = no lift lines.

    If this stays as projected, I really have very little experience skiing legitimate powder days in the Poconos, since legitimate powder days in the Poconos are rarer than a three-legged albino deer, so I dont know how bad the lines will be. One thing that should work in favor of diminished lines (at least after lunch) is the fact the AFC Championship game kicks off at 3pm.

    If this hits try Jack Frost. Usually short lines anyway and probably has the only legitimate gladed terrain in PA.

    As other have said can't get excited until I know where. It hitting anywhere south or west of Vermont does me now good except for maybe keeping some of those people away from the slopes which looking at it that way does excite me some.

    Bear Creeks not steep enough for 8" of powder let alone 2'.
    Top section good for turns after that straight line to lift .
    They have a few unofficial gladed sections.

    Was there yesterday with the little guy , almost 100% open but nothing in the woods.

    Bear Creek was my home "mountain" when I was a kid! The woods skier's left of Timberline can be quite fun on the very rare occasions there's enough snow. There's an annoying hike back up though. We used to nickname them the "back bowls" of Bear Creek.

    At least you know you will be skiing. I don't know how I will be getting from Binghamton to a mountain this weekend since I won't have access to my car.

    Furreals? Never been to Jack Frost, and didn't know there were glades anywhere in e.PA.


    EDIT: Though even if they get 20", that probably wouldn't be enough to ski trees as it would be 28" natural for the season.
