Plattekill reporting “awesome conditions” again today. I guess it must get pretty bad because yesterday was awful by my standards. Maybe this is awesome for them but not me.
It’s not just the deception of Cannon, it’s that insane exuberance about a couple inches of snow. Skiing Cannon is like eating a McDonalds hamburger your whole life. Then the first time you have a burger from Wendy’s you think it’s epic.

Pretty incredible, just complete radio silence up until maybe an hour ago when they listed trails / lifts for opening day tomorrow. Considering it was raining in Wilmington VT yesterday morning I was expecting at least a little bit of an update on whether they thought would still be able to make their planned opening day. Instead the snow report (still) just said "Snow & weather commentary updates coming soon." In the past there were photos of actual snowmaking, continuous communication, etc. I'm not a reflexive Vail hater but they really sucked the fun out of the anticipation of the season. I almost never even go on opening day but this year I had reservations for Thanksgiving weekend and I actually canceled them given the lack of certainty about what would even be open this week (among other things).I'd like to say that Vail Resorts are quite deceptive, however that would mean that this year, now roughly 24 hrs until the 1st chairs of the season spin at Stowe, Okemo, Mount Snow and Hunter, that they would of actually updated their snow report section of their webpage with even something as simple as "planned opening on Wednesday November 25th"

SHHHHHH. . . its always worse in Mad River Valley, best head north or south.In the past (pre Altera) Sugarbush has consistently under reported snowfall. Not sure why or if they got less snow than fell at my place (1700’) and MRG,... but it always seems to be less snow than actually fell.
