    As long as it's cold around race time, between pushing some soft snow off towards where the b-netting is, and using either the water injection system on one of the cats they bring in and/or literally just using the water hoses from the snowmaking system to wet down the snow like they were garden hoses as as as opposed to snowmaking water supply lines, they'll get that race hill to the desired bullet proof surface they want quite quickly

    i forgot to cancel a hotel room i had near K, so i've got an $80 use it or lose it room saturday night. i think i'll drive up sat afternoon and ski sunday.

    and the K forecast now has big snow friday night, but with the potential for icy mess as well.

    Friday Night
    Freezing rain, possibly mixed with snow, becoming all freezing rain after 4am. Low around 29. Very windy, with a southeast wind 39 to 44 mph decreasing to 29 to 34 mph after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New ice accumulation of 0.1 to 0.3 of an inch possible. New snow accumulation of 7 to 11 inches possible.
    Saturday
    Snow showers and freezing rain likely before noon, then a chance of snow showers after 5pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 31. Very windy, with a west wind 25 to 35 mph increasing to 38 to 48 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of around an inch possible.
    Saturday Night
    A 30 percent chance of snow showers before 9pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 18. Very windy, with a northwest wind 50 to 55 mph decreasing to 43 to 48 mph after midnight. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

    First off storm trending colder. May be only brief change at K at elevation (but it will changeI. Then Saturday there will be snow backside of storm, upslope flow, lake effect aided. They'll be cranking out high quality man made. Base will firm up but surface improving. So Saturday OK. I'll bet Sunday is outright good.

    And I would not use that forecast.

    May have to make a jaunt to Sunday River on Tuesday if the first storm dumps some goods and the 2nd storm materializes. Maybe enough to get a couple natural trails going.

    I find that the noaa 3400' forecast for Killington is pretty much the most accurate within 3 days. Most other Killington weather forecasts are for the town at about 1500'

    Can't get out this weekend but between this system, the system on tap for Tuesday and the temps afterwards.... will look and feel like winter next week for sure. Going to try and burn a vacation day Friday and get up for the Stowe opening day.
