    I'm not getting excited. All signs are for no real snow where we need it. It'll be wasted in the mid-Atlantic and southern New England with a sharp cutoff.

    Your NIMBY attitude is very NIMBY.

    About two weeks ago I committed to a three day ski trip to Canaan Valley, WV this weekend. Fingers crossed that I get snowbound for about a five day trip

    As you know, we've had a very slow start down here. This could make up for a multitude of sins by Mother Nature.

    I'd rather a more northern storm track, but at this point, I am so happy to see us discussing SOMETHING (other than inferior precip. types, warmth, and high pressure) on this weather forum!

    The operational Euro run that just came out made a BIG southern shift that would crush the hopes and dreams of the Poconos. Hopefully it's an outlier run and the ensemble suite that comes out in an hour is in place to the north. Still a massively impressive storm on the Euro, laying down > 40" in parts of Virginia!!!

    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.
    It's been a few years since I was there. Somewhere on the east side of the mountain there are maintained glades. They also thinned out the trees and removed underbrush between two of the blues. So, not the most exciting, but hey, you have to take what you can get around these parts.

    Bring some rock skis and check it out.

    Most models runs today have moved the storm south, like very south. DC and south! Of course that could change.

    Those are so low angle it'll be tough to get anywhere if they get as much as predicted.
