    I've cleared out my calendar for Tuesday.

    Can always put it back in the bank if the storm fizzle out.

    Mid-week snowfall looks like it is going to be more like dust-on-crust, 2-3" by looks of the forecasts. Tomorrow on, with the exception of Wednesday day, will be much, much colder, good for snowmaking recovery. Doubt anyone will be back to pre-thaw conditions by the coming weekend. Those with the best snowmaking will be in a better position to capitalize on next weekends snow, if they can make their surfaces so that it doesn't fall on glare ice. Otherwise, with the cold temps, it may be skied off quickly. Lots of dirt showing out there. Crazy weather this year for sure.

    i usually go west this weekend and am regretting that i haven't made that plan this year

    i recall last year for MLK a buddy reported traffic delays over 90 min getting up the stowe access road. i want to say a truck jack-knifed and fucked everything up? + big snow.

    even with the ikon blackout, i'm still avoiding k/sugarbush/stratton this weekend. just too popular to roll the dice with on a holiday weekend after a fuck thaw.

    Stowe on the mountain during the week between Christmas and New Years wasn't that crowded... even after we got some of the sloppy storm and conditions improved. Was also a Epic local blackout period. I know then later that week as conditions continued to improve it got more crowded than it was during the holiday crowd period.

    It'll be a fun weekend to check the webcams from afar.

    Considering the crowd that showed up to Stowe on the 5th for a storm that barely delivered..This weekend could be nuts if the storm comes. Its going to take a lot to cover that ice. Last year I was in JH...think that will be the plan for now on..
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Loon, Killington, Mount Snow, and Stratton are by far the best places to go over MLK weekend. Why would you go anywhere else?

    Killington actually isnt that bad, plenty of places to avoid the crowds there. Yes, k1,bubble,ramshead,ans SpQ will have ridiculous lines, but if you ride the canyon, bear chair, needles, superstar, Snowdon triple etc, you can avoid those crowds pretty easily....hopefully the snow happens on saturday and opens up the unmarked and there will be plenty of room....just dont go to the bar.
