    I always do my first western trip in January, precisely for that reason.

    Not necessarily on MLK weekend though, as I had passes that are blackout. MLK weekend is often my “rest” weekend after the madness of Christmas-New Year. (I’ve skied Christmas out west & in Japan the last 4-5 years). MLK weekend is too close to New Year for me to pull a second “away” trip. So I rest and plan for a trip in late January-early February.

    Now thinking of staying local in Pa, Elk Sunday and Blue Monday.

    Though snow is forecasted in Vt and itís only Tuesday, with the amt of terrain currently open it may make really crowded into ridiculously crowded. Travel time and expense may not be worth it for those long lift waits. Game time decision maybe and depends on lodging availability but right now Pa mts will probably be the call.

    I would avoid epic/ikon destinations like the plague this weekend, and north/East is king

    Iíve got a room reserved in Lyndon and hopefully will storm ski jay Saturday and leftovers at Burke Sunday. Nickle-dime snows tues weds and Thursday, potential big storm sat>sun
    Not sure if it's been posted further down in the thread, but Ikon is blacked out for base pass holders, so I would think that would actually reduce the crowds, all other things being equal.

    Agreed. The reason that resorts on the Ikon Pass will be extremely crowded is simply that they are some of the "premiere" resorts in New England, so they tend to get very crowded during holiday weekends. The Ikon Pass being blacked out helps to reduce crowds, all else being equal, but that loss will be wayyyyy more than offset by the holiday weekend crowds.

    How big is the sat storm gonna be ? Will Berkshire East or Magic get enough snow from it? Day tripping from RI, canít get way up north this weekend.

    Monday is already the most quiet day of MLK weekend. Cold Monday won’t stop people from skiing Saturday and Sunday, especially with Sunday a powder day

    From experience I'll bet lots and lots is closed because its a bit too firm for those "epic" tourists. They are expecting 2 storms >6" and most terrain will open.
