Spot on. MRG can often spin when upper mountain lifts at the Bush can not. But as you mentioned, wind direction will be a factor. And the Double and Single head in different directions and have different wind issues. Jay already has 8" and counting, the prospect of driving over to Bush and having the place on lift hold while Jay is pushing well over a foot is not promising. Packing my skins just in case and heading to Jay tomorrow. Hope you all have good luck in the Valley regardless which mountain you end up at and perhaps another day I be able to share some more turns with y'all.

Well, if SB is on windhold, from experience I can say that most likely Jay will more than likely be on hold. So the skins will be helpful....

Looking forward to a TR.

I am going to bail on tomorrow as I cannot justify the drive and the expense if the winds and snow are not up to par. We are going to head up to Sunday River and perhaps even drive up to Saddleback if winds are that bad on friday. At least we can ski off the T-bar's.

Have a great time regardless of the weather

Not necessarily. HG and CR go down quicker than most lifts whereas Jay's Jet can spin often times with some tough wind (which is ideal by my standards). But tomorrow AM is going to be rough everywhere and I am somewhat doubtful Jay will open even the Jet on time. Wind here in Ashland, NH is about as fierce as I have heard it all season. Hopefully it will die down tomorrow especially as the day wears on.

It was nice, snowing hard in the morning and clearing up in the afternoon. I had to skip out early to return to the inn. Probably a good thing as Greg, et al were probably tired of waiting up for me.

Great snow with some ice underneath those moguls in places. HG and NL were on wind hold, unfortunately. I kept expecting them to open up because the wind wasn't bad except for on top of Super Bravo, but it must have been gusting up top. No problems at Castle Rock.

Yeah! I was REALLY tempted to go anyway.... if it weren't for lack of a doggy sitter, I probably would have headed up with Brian and took my chances. Of course, that would have been stupid. Just driving his stick shift while he's been away has already aggravated my knee.

Lucky ducks! :razz:
