    Greek wasn't terrible, warm, no rain, shitty visibility, soft/firm fast snow.IMG_20200111_094647228.jpgIMG_20200111_094510800.jpgIMG_20200111_085942942.jpg

    Opensnow is hedging its bet on next week, which is disturbing.

    It’s a holiday weekend. So either I make reservation and deal with “whatever” condition we end up, or will be sleeping in the car!

    This is the first year for a long while that I tried to ski in northeast in January. It’s quickly getting expensive (due to having to scramble last minute to book or cancel base on condition), and frustrating (mixed condition) as a result.

    Picking up the Peak mountains “for free” is nice in theory. But “free skiing” can get expensive when lodging cost is high. I’m probably going back to fighting the increased crowd in Ikon next year (the more diverse location and surroundings allows more lodging options, not to mention snow chasing)

    Bluebird skies, 60 degrees and soft spring conditions today at Crotched. Nice half day. IMG_20200111_112801984.jpgIMG_20200111_104247567.jpg

    Any reports from Cannon or Wildcat today? Did summit lifts at cannon ever open? I was going to head to there but changed my mind early this morning. Instead I went mtn biking this afternoon and it was very muddy. Should have gone skiing!

    Really great day at Sunday River today! It was also my first time there. Rain didn't start until 3:30 and around 9:00 the trails became soft. Lots of bump runs over snowmaking whales!

    Also no lifts on windhold

    Hehe, “what everyone says is true”, it cost a lot more to live here too!

    So there’s no more left over to “afford” skiing than others

    Cannon Upper Mountian lifts never ran while I was there, closed on Sunday.
    Gonna need a lot of resurfacing to get it back to skiable !

    Mid mountain was showing some serious damage late afternoon saturday before the rain !
