Plus there's a rumor on K-zone that once the top terminal of the Snowdon 6 is fully assembled, that K might have to push the snow on Great Northern out of the way to facilitate the moving of the crane apparently at the top of the S6 now on up and over to the top of the new South ridge lift for assembly purposes over there, and then push the snow back onto Great Northern and resurface.
Re: K-zone - I cannot wrap my hands around the level of criticism over their mountain. They are putting in ungodly amounts of cash to fix major problems, improve the mountain, etc. From my standpoint, a person who calls K home has the world by the balls.
Tis the ugly time of year when mountain micro climates with ugly humidities can reek havoc with the wet bulb tempsIt's 36 degrees in Lowell, MA right now...
I'll be shocked if they aren't pounding away on the bottom of punch as I type this.
Report now says they currently have enough snow to ski ttb, but don't know if it wil last with warming temps.
Think any of the barker trails they've been blowing are ready if they get lower punch open?
You can expect deep coverage and grooming on T2 and Upper Sunday Punch with mid-loading still available on the Locke Mountain Triple, but skiing back to the base open on Sunday Punch and Lower Punch. Temperatures will be rising today and remaining above freezing most of the weekend, so expect early season conditions from the mid-station down with the potential for a bit of walking required at the base as conditions get skied off. The mid-station will continue to off downloading, so if you don't want to ski back to the base we've got you covered.
No, SR is TTB, just going to be a rough option to the base, just like Snow. Wildcat benefits from elevation and proximity to Mount Washington. I say that because driving up to SR tonight, Franconia had no snow in the notch at road level (plenty up on Cannon though in moonlight). Once I got to route 2, a lot of snow on North side of Presidentials. I expected the snow to be gone going downhill into Gorham but was surprised to find several inches on the ground still and plow banks.So basically it sounds like right now the only resorts with top to bottom for sure tomorrow will be Peak properties.
And if this coming weeks forecast pans out, by next weekend it might be just back to Killington and Sunday River with downloading required. The wildcard being will Mount Snow want to operate with Freefall and the Cascade to River Run options with downloading to the base?
