Looks from the forecast like they might stay rock hard through the weekend, too. Maybe they'll blow enough snow to keep them from getting scraped down to boilerplate for a few hours at least. Looking forward to awesome spring conditions next weekend.

Stay out of the bumps for the most part , the troughs have some nasty BLUE ice. Racers edge had good coverage ,Challenge was boiler plate down the middle with some nice stuff on the edges, after tonight groomers should be covered pretty well considering. Impressive effort overall !

if you look at the long term forecast, this weekend is it across the Northeast. After Sunday we will once again be in the tropical blower and decent snow making opportunities will be few and far between.

That's why I'm skiing this weekend eeven though condition won't be all that fantastic. I'm afraid next weekend will be even worse than this week.

Belleayre was making snow yesterday. Most bump trails were "firm" to put it nicely. Groomer conditions varied, but the rain damage was clearly evident. Still an overall decent day.

Belleayre has been making snow all week.

Firm is putting it nicely; stayed home today after 2 days of skiing firm bumps at Belle.

Tomorrow at Elk should be good.

Cranmore has clearly been making snow. The surface is great today.

Mount Snow was blowing snow overnights this weekend. The snow yesterday was quite hard overall, but consistent and really not that bad.

All second hand info, but the word at the River is they will make as long as its cold enough this season. No plan on stopping any time soon.

Friday had Pat's Peak blowing on pieces of a couple of trails. Small enough to make it worthwhile I guess...

Sunday 3/6 at Whiteface they were blowing snow. Pretty evident on some trails that snow was being stockpiled.
