Yeah, that is true about bell. But the runs off the Tomahawk have little to no run out, and have pockets of trees, and bike trails to play in - obviously this is more interesting later int eh day tomorrow or saturday, as they are brown now.
.

Except on weekend when the gondola runs but not Tomahawk.

Do you mean on weekDAYs?

I thought they close the 7 lift on weekends, not the tomahawk? No?

As far as I know, Lift 7 and Tomahawk both run on the weekend. During the week they only run the Gondola and Superchief though and not the two upper mountain fixed grip chairs.

Heres the real question.... Will a legit snow map that doesn't feature a 0-30" probability come out before the storm?

Nope, because with this storm, that 0-30" range could very well occur within 50 miles!!!!
Being the resident Mt. Snow expert - do you think they'll run the lifts tomorrow with those winds? Are we looking at lots of wind holds or only lower mountain lifts being open tomorrow?

I would probably start lapping the North Face if it gets windy... might be able to keep skiing longer as long as you don't leave the North Face

Won't they just kick you off the North Face/close it down though? Otherwise people could keep skiing/riding down and getting stuck at the bottom during a wind hold.

Predicted wind speeds and wind direction(s) make me think that summit access, via any of the options to get there, is going to be an issue for some, if not all day

I'm at home in CT until tomorrow afternoon when I'm supposed to head up, so I've got no skin in the powder game tomorrow... Just trying to give my honest opinion based on how lift ops at Mount Snow often are in the weather.

The Bluebird might be OK wind speed wise, it's going to be more about the wind direction is my hunch. Nor'easters are often wind hold issues for the Northface lifts is my experience.....

Greek Peak? Is there anywhere even to stay around there?

Lots of condos and a large hotel. I think they went bankrupt a few years ago from building to many units. Also a lot of hotels in Binghamton and I know there are hotels in Ithaca. Probably hotels in cortlandt too.

Winter Weather Advisory now issued for Eastern Windham County in SoVT....2-6". We'll see if any adjustments are made for the Southern Greens/Western Windham area.
