    The forecast for Magic is 9-12". That should get them into great shape even if a couple of the gnarliest steeps aren't ready yet.

    Agreed. And with that the new Euro says that while the storm "cuts" it snows pretty much everywhere in norther NE, certainly north of Rutland. Just one model run but point in next Monday/Tuesday is a loooongggg way off and models are not doing well in this pattern.

    I did end up booking the trip so hoping for the best. I'll be at Jay Monday so hopefully being as far north as possible will help. That said, the storm as modeled now shows a lot of mid-level warmth so would be more on the side of ice rather than snow. But yes, with the struggles this winter hopefully that Arctic front sags south enough to keep the taint away.

    Beautiful St Johnsbury.

    I graduated from LSC in 2013...the year after I went up a bunch while I still knew everyone but since then I've only been back once. I'm sure not much has changed.

We are driving somewhere friday night and skiing saturday and driving home.



    On the table:

    Plattekill - Close. 3-1/2 hr. drive. Easy peasy. Nearly 100% open right now despite the rain (anyone ski there recently?). So if they get 8-10" Tuesday, maybe they open for a powder day, but with he cold weather, should be if pretty good shape for Sat. I would think.

    Magic - Medium distance. 4-4-1/2 hrs. depend on where we find a room. We've never been despite trying to get there for a good day for the last 2-3 years. Could this be the year? Only half open so not sure Tuesdays snow returns it to all it's glory.

    Mad River Glen. Ugg. The Big Drive. 5-1/2 hours, maybe 6 on a Friday evening. But conditions sound surprisingly good, and they got some bonus snow this weekend. A little storm really should put them in prime shape based on the reports I've read. But that's 11-12 hours of driving for 7-8 hours of skiing. (My daughter is not old enough to drive, so I'm behind the wheel the whole way.) So, that kind of suck, but you know, we love that mountain....little afraid of the single line on a nice day after some snow.

    Thoughts? Opinions? Reports from these three mountains?

    I'll be checking the weather constantly at work....gonna be a long week!
    You should add Gore to the list. Though I'm not sure about weekend crowds. The drive from central NJ is 4 hours and they got 9-10" Sunday, supposed to get more today and most of the glades are open. Easy to get a cheap room in Lake George and that's 3 1/2 hours.
