    Can't speak for southern vt, but sugarbush was great today. Really far exceeded my expectations.

    Conditions should be good through Friday, but then Friday afternoon/evening it'll all switch to rain, then right back to below freezing on Saturday... that could be dangerous, but I hope not.

    Where? I think Sugarbush gets mostly snow out of this.

    Southern VT gets a net equal effect through Christmas, although the cycle should create a nice base with a fluffy layer on top. The question is are we going to end up with dust on crust or something much better.

    Northern VT and maybe anywhere Killington north gets a big win. Probably some ice pellets mixed in but overall I think we'll be a lot better off in a week than we are now. Even at Killington there should be enough snow before any mixed precip occurs that it's just going to lock in an awesome base for the New Year.

    Agreed now that I look again. Originally they were predicting much more rain across New England, but I guess temps are maybe staying lower than they originally predicted?

    Sorry guys but all current forecast models have 850mb temps (approx 5,000') above freezing Saturday afternoon. It might freeze or re-freeze in the lower levels if the cold air doesn't get scoured out but it ain't gonna be snow, all the way to the Canadian border.

    Now the models can be wrong.

    And for sure north of I90 it's a net gainer.
    2019/20 = 23 Cut Short!
    2018/19 = 36
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Also, I agree with Deadheadskier (nice name by the way, I'm normally the one that puts on The Dead over the entire base area music system!) Let's not make this tread about which mountain you like the best, because that is something that will never be solved on a forum. We started this tread to be able to answer your questions, respond to rumors you may have hears, and to give you all an inside line on activites and snowmaking on-hill.

    I'll also let you in on a little secret, we ski Killi from time to time...
    Back when I worked for ASC I hit both mountains all the time since i lived in between. How can you not love the ol Beartrap bumps on a nice sunny march day?

    I have a couple of questions for Mt Snow. As of this morning about 67% of terrain was listed as open including some natural terrain. What % of your terrain is covered by snowmaking? Also, are the woods and glade skiing areas included in the total acreage reported as open as some areas do? I really like the early season effort and hope to get a lot more days in this season.

    Pretty sure the answer is 80% and no.
