    Don't trust the TunaForcast... I'd probably get warned if I bring up the certain memory I'm thinking of though....*sigh*

    Also put me down for Team Rain. Not doubting a couple inches of slop though.

    Tuna’s forecast track record makes kingslug’s “questionable decisions” track record downright reasonable!

    I am skiing Cannon Saturday as things are not getting there until late afternoon. Then going to sugarbush Sunday as it seems that everything should be over with a little back side snow

    Looks like a decent shot of rain, and if you must ski this weekend, ski Saturday & ski somewhere north of the Massachusetts border.

    EDIT: And dont be afraid of driving home in a gully-washer.
    Nah I'm going up to Cannon and/or Bretton and/or Wildcat Wednesday through potentially Friday. Waiting for the slop to settle I figure base will be built up.

    I knew you guys would put me in a position where I'd be forced to post my awesome snow condition photos from the trip though

    I think everyone was talking about this Saturday and Sunday not next week. But actually looks like nothing falling from the sky after this weekend up to next Thursday to replenish anything. Although ya never know

    Looks like a good weekend to get caught up on work here in NJ. Nothing seems worth the effort his Sunday.

    This season

    Don't get me wrong, I've had some really nice days. That first week of December, I was able to hit up Southern and Central VT for 3 days with pow or leftover pow. I had some fantastic snow during the New Year's eve storm. I skied the first Sunday in January and this past Sunday.

    But what stinks is that every time after we get some decent snow, we then get rain. Magic and Pico still don't have as many trails open today as they did on December 7/8. It feels like the natural base keeps growing and then shrinking, but isn't any deeper than it was a month and a half ago.

    I know, this is just New England skiing. I've resigned myself to it. The key is to get it while the getting is good. But as a New Englander, I also like to complain

    We've already canceled 3 trips to VT this season on account of the weather. With an 18 month old, the 4+ hour trip is kind of a pain, so we decided this year just to bag it if there is rain in the forecast. I think on all 3 of the canceled weekend, it rained at least part of the time or iced making lifts a mess. I was so excited when the forecast for this week looked good and now I am fecking bummed. Praying for a miracle at elevation now. Argh.
