    that's 6am. There is no doubt it will rain hard all night, its just a question of when it stops. It looks like it moves out quick late morning. Euro says same thing. Might be ok from 11-4.

    If I was within an hour or 2 drive and had an epic pass I might be tempted

    Right next to the "12" in the upper left. "z" stands for Zulu and is the standard time you'll see in pretty much any model map.

    got it, thanks. so that is "universal time" as referenced in articles about plane crashes for example? and it seems to be the same as GMT?

    i still maintain that skiing hunter on sunday wont be good or fun, tho it will be uncharacteristically uncrowded for a weekend.

    Yes, Zulu is commonly used in Military and Aviation (and weather) and refers to UTC/GMT time.

    It's skiing. It's far better than not skiing in my book! I'm 100% with Kingslug on this one!

    Skiing in the rain can be ok depending on visibility. The snow is almost always soft. Unfortunately, more times than not the clouds are very low, there is a ton of fog and you have to keep wiping your googles putting it into the skiing by braille category which is no fun in my book.

    yea but i dont go to stratton in the middle of or just after a massive rainfall. i go when i can ski their woods. and last week after i posted that i didnt even end up at stratton. i decided to burn a killington day because the skiing was substantially better at k.

    I'm sure Hunter will be empty this weekend. Does starter even make waterproof jackets?
