    From a local poster on another forum, not from an official snow report. I believe it given pretty much everywhere is apparently a hockey rink, and you had that fatality yesterday at Jay Peak. MRG's report calls it "stiff", etc.. Apparently the woods in Vermont are like a glass pond.

    Reports from multiple friends of mine who were up at Stowe today with their kids racing in the U16 VT State Super G Championship, is that the hill is firm, but skiing very well where the groomers did their thing. The trees though, are in need of the incoming storm, as the most common phrase I read in the text thread among those in my usual ski group who are up there today was "glacial" and that's from a guy who thinks that a hockey rink, fresh off a pass by a zamboni, is a manageable surface!

    cdskier...if you're heading to finger lakes region, hit Bristol for a day. Both my kids race for Hobart and they say conditions are spectacular...lake effect snow just keeps dumping. It's not a bad area for being in the the middle of God-awful nothin'. I do one or two days there each year with the boys...always a good time

    Bristol is a bit out of my way as I'll be around the western side of Cayuga and the eastern side of Seneca with a pretty full day planned on Saturday, then a drive home Sunday from Watkins Glen. I skied Bristol back in college though all the time and always had a good time there. (I went to college in Rochester). When I was creating my itinerary, I did actually toy with the idea of re-visiting Bristol, but it was just a bit too far from the area I'll be in.

    This might be one of those times where I make a Go/No-go decision on Friday after the 12z runs.
