Saturday- Backcountry skiing on a 1 foot of new fresh. No base, snow was powder, but not super lite so able to stay off the rocks and crap. Sweet turns in the trees.

Sunday - Hunter, cause I already had plans with friends to meet there even before the storm materialized. Hunter got about 8-10 inches I'd say, but most of it blew off the mountain with the high winds Saturday, so Sunday was not really anything to write about, except the crowds.


So who got the goods?

I plundered the goods all weekend =)

Friday night - Bolton
Saturday- Stowe
Sunday- Smuggs

It was 3 day powderfest for me!!

With the exception of Bolton at night I skied trees and side country every run and found un-tracked snow every run.

I did the Bruce Trail for the first time and some steep lines off of the long trail near Sterling. Happy to get those off my bucket list!

Great weekend!

Plattekill for the 1st time Sunday. Skied day-after pow (over no base, however) for a solid half the day on closed trails and other areas. Skis are doomed, the smile is not. I will be back.

Gore Saturday, decent amount of snow and no crowds. Great bumps and steeps. The glades were a little sketchy but not bad. I think they got 6-7" at the base and close to 10-11" on the summit.

Then I went to Jiminy last night for a last minute twilight session. They claimed 12", but it was hard to tell from the left overs. I think it was more like 8" or 9". Absolutely no one there, I imagine Saturday was probably the busiest night of the year for them. It was pretty scraped down between bumps but the steep trails were in good shape. Spent a lot of time in the park hitting the big kickers.

I don't think the ADK park would let that fly, would we sweet though. Sorry I couldn't catch up with you Sunday, hopefully you enjoyed my leftovers!

Went to bed at 3am with no new snow.. by 7am sugarbush has 4-6" and it was comming down all day friday into sat morning. Sunday was total bluebird day.

Got some Saturday but never made it to the mountain until Sunday.

I skied chopped up powder and soft bumps at Magic on Sat, and the Palmers were outstanding. I was able to rip mandatory GS turns all day with no problems.

I got 2 tickets to Cannon, so when I make it up, parking lot beers on me.

Friday –got in a quick few late day runs at Mt Ellen, 4-6” of new snow on a firm base
Saturday – skied Mt Ellen with 10-14” total snow and a couple of early AM first tracks powder runs off the Inverness chair, lots of soft new snow all over the mountain, sunny but got cold and windy late in the day
Sunday – skied Lincoln Peak under blue skies, no wind and temps in the mid 20’s. Stuck mostly to groomers with the exception of Moonshine and Twist which were obviously better with the fresh snow on Saturday. The word around the mountain was that the woods and Slide Brook still need more snow

Saturday - Wildcat, pretty sweet, very cold.

Sunday - Attitash, somehow they managed to turn that snow into ice. That mountain sucks.

No problems hopefully next times will ski together. Sunday was not much left over, I think it was because of Saturday winds.

skied friday through sunday at lincoln peak. thought friday was the best. perhaps I was a disappointed there wasnt more snow saturday but it was also colder and wind swept. groomers were great. There was fresh powder to be had in the woods but the base was very thin and needed to be careful. sunday was a beautiful bluebird day. left wanting more.

Wasn't thrilled about the snow at Cannon on Sat.As usual it was skied up pretty quick and a lot of the freshies I grabbed were windpacked with some pretty hard(ice) in places.Sunday was a beautifull day but it turned into a shit show with people,at least by Cannons standards.
