    Winds will pick up overnight, and be honkin' all day Sat into Sun morning...



    Will probably bail this weekend, BUT might get to take the convertible out for the first time on Sunday
    Look again, Sunday may be a really nice day with 6-10" at Cannon, sun and low wind. I'm definitely planning on heading out.
    Live for today

    If I can make this work, might try the new terrain at Hunter...

    Who does better in the wind? Bell or Hunter?
    From what I am seeing Plattekill looks to be getting more than the other Cats areas. And those Hall lifts are ALMOST impervious to wind.

    That would be my first choice, but it's 20 minutes further, and I have to be home by 5.

    Bell and Hunter are 3 each way. That's as far as i can manage. Leave at 5:30, on the mountain by 9, ski till 2....

    Ugh. Lots of driving, but seems like it might be worth it.

    Definitely drive Saturday morning.

    Into a snowstorm, yes. In the daylight, yes. Arrive just as wind hold clears, YES!

    We are in the same boat. Can't leave until Sat morning. Will I be risking my life?
