So a quick search for a thread discussing storm accumulation totals yielded nothing. Being stuck here in the flatlands is painful enough. Knowing it is snowing where it counts is some solace. I'm thinking a thread discussing storm totals would be convenient when trying to decide where to go. So if you would like to participate post your totals here. As of now, out my front door all the precipitation has been in liquid form, but there was something like 2 inches of it...

Gore reported 15" I think, felt like way more in the woods. I was easily knee deep in the most spots in the trees.

Awesome, thanx for your participation guys. I think I will try to hold off for a week before making my inaugural trip north. Ya know, try to avoid the holiday crowds and pricing...

Right now in Syracuse we are up to 26 inches (officially) for the month of December. Right now we have at least two some places three or more feet in higher elevations. My local hill has a good 24 inch base and we are getting more snow tomorrow night and into Sunday. Forecast also looks like more lake effect (we get a ton of that) continuing thru next week and temps dropping to the teens (which we have no problem with here)

But our Winter started two days before xmas (btw hope everyone is enjoying whats left of this holiday week) and it looks like now the pattern is locked in.

I know I asked on their Facebook page if they will open the double tomorrow, they said anything is possible, Platty plus is I know the hill and driving from were I live easy, Berkshire E is fully open but kind of far and I don't know how the roads are going there. Elk still only 14 trails open never been but it looks like mostly highway driving for me and that is a plus.:)

Just an FYI Scotty, Elk has been reluctant to get on board with the glade skiing experience... Not sure how much that matters this early in the season, but something to consider. I won't pretend to know everything about Elk. I haven't been there in awhile, but think the strict "no woods" policy was mentioned in a thread last season. It is a decent hill,, just wish management would reconsider this outdated policy.

You're correct...it's most always altitude, altitude, altitude = Vermont + Adirondacks.
You might wanna think about Maine, particularly during stretches of cold temperatures. If you can get up in time to wake up for first chair at SL, Saddleback, or SR = great conditions, whether it be pp or pow...and that's just on weekends. Midweek is nearly vacant except for the limited diehard, in-the-know crowd.
Most off-resort country, above Augusta, has gotten ~12"+. Just one more storm now and lots more of the off-resort country in the state will be do-able. Till now...the Western Mtns have had it all.

Belleayre has most of its trails open. The driving is straight forward, a lot easier than Platty.

Not sure about the crowd control though. That's not one of Bell's strong point...

Thanks I'm thinking now of going to Elk tomorrow, and on New Year's trying Bell for $30.
