Yipee......


That's a VERY optimistic map. For once I'm not really complaining. 12 hours or rain will fill snowmaking ponds in preparation for next week's onslaught of snowmaking heading into MLK weekend. Any snow will be hard as a rock Monday. Premium base-builder.

I've got to figure that a company that asses risk will err on the side of overstating the risk. That's probably why they are calling for more snow than others.

Agree! Full onslaught of r@!n on Sunday! Then referee of the slopes which will set up trails to get scraped off easily.

Yep. Gonna refreeze so badly they'll need ice hockey referees. :spin:

Saturday going to be a wash as well? Had originally heard snow on Sat for the Sunapee area.

My experience is that the risk assessment reports are generally pretty accurate. Overestimating risk can cost a client just as much money as underestimating risk. If a company shuts down some operations on Sat/Sun, that it could have run, the risk assessment company will look pretty bad. With that being said, its a forecast based in science and computer modeling; might be right, might be wrong.

All I know is the weather was beautiful all week Jan. 5-8. Skiing wasn't to shabby either, even got to ski several all natural snow trails at Stowe & Sugarbush.
