All the new snow is going to stay dry and fluffy with that forecast!! Not always easy to do this time of year!

The long-range temp forecasts are cold through at least late-March.

This "spring" is turning into a unicorn.

Be funny if i dont want to go to utah in april because its better here..

I recently made that decision for Easter week, we're staying here.

I could spend a few thousand to go someplace heavily hit by snow like Big Sky, but at this point, this looks like it could be the best east coast spring skiing in........ who even knows how many years....... so I'd rather save the money and not miss it.

I have to smile at this. How often do we get to say we may be better off skiing in New England than out West?

Wasn't it just earlier this year that some people on this board were trying to make the argument that even a "bad" day out west was better than a "good" day in the east? :lol:

That was me... or at least one of those people was me.

Suffice to say that last Thursday the 8th was the deepest and most fun I've ever had in the East or West (though I don't have many trips or days out West either). I really do appreciate Mother Nature making me eat my own words! :D

How are the models looking for next week? I know it's a long way out, but are they still showing some promise?

About 3 or 4 years ago I was skiing in late March or early April at Smuggs after about a 3 foot dump, and I met a family from Colorado who came here because apparently their season end was terrible. That's a dedicated ski family right there.
