    You guys are in a see saw season. Cold, snow, warm up, rain, refreeze and repeat.

    Exactly. I've never seen a bell to bell eastern winter of good snow. We always have had thaws. Joshua Segal has a list of winters and what they were like (he goes so far as the rank them). I once saw a chart that showed the percentage of terrain open over an entire season, compiled of several seasons, (eastern) and no where was it 100% the whole time, and most of the times it was 100% were in February and March. I sincerely believe we will have a good 2nd half and an excellent spring.

    Well remain optimiostic, remember 2014-15 season? January was terrible all the way through January 18th and then the temps dropped and winter arrived and the season ended up being great!

    The classic New England pattern!! 14 - 15 is still possible. At least we are getting bouts of cold now though.

    Meanwhile in Colorado my son just got stuck on the west side of Berthoud Pass. Had to make him a hotel reservation as US 40 is closed due to a 2nd slide today. Sure enjoying the pictures out of the Sierra too with Jim Cantori up to his waist in snow at the base of Heavenly.

    I would say it has been a pretty decent start to the winter for many. Reports from Northern Vermont and white mountain resorts have been very good. I have had several powder days in NH and even Massachusetts which is good for before mid Jan. That being said after tonight's wet snow things aren't looking great for the next ten days or so. Hopefully some changes take place end of the month.

    Yeah, I've had a good season so far - early days in the catskills, great powder day at Hunter with Claire's open and zero crowds....good conditions at sugarbush over x-mas (which is always a crap shoot) including hike-to castle rock run that was the highlight of the season, and a great day at MRG with 80% open, buttery snow everywhere, and a few nice tree runs... but now I want more!!! Trying to plan guy's weekend in VT and that's like herding cats between everyone's schedule, and we want to go with good skiing....

    Hopefully something will turn here and we can make late Jan, first week in Feb work, otherwise, probably push off to March.

    I have to admit in early to mid December there were days where I was thinking - sure now that I have moved they are getting powder days in December and the season is going to kick ass. Kind of a bummer to read about the recent cycles. NE needs a great winter.

    Honestly the skiing where I've been the past couple weeks has been pretty good.

    Besides I'm pretty sure a pattern change is about to happen. Rebecca seems to think so and thus far she is on point.

    Snow is mostly gone at the coast. I tuned up my bike this morning and plan on riding dirt as soon as the grounds firms back up this weekend

    Just a bad few days at a popular time. This season has been incredible this year, don't mind a few bad days. Good signals for Tues-Weds.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.
