Yep! Noticed that myself.

It's contributing to my decision NOT to travel far north this weekend. Normally when I travel north, I pick and choose the days to xc (i.e. on windy days) vs downhill (warmer, calmer days). But this weekend, the xc situation is pretty dire even up north, shutting out my "wind escape route". So staying close to home appeal massively. (and the last batch of snow in the Cats also help reenforced my decision to stay close to home).

LES machine is cranking up here in central NY. I was going to go to Elk for their last Winterfest day, Friday. I think I'll just hit Greek, should have at least 6" by then. Possibly Snow Ridge, if they get hammered.

Looks great for the Catskills (snow-forecast predicts twice as high snow totals for areas in the Catskills than, say, the adirondacks & northern VT). A couple other weather patterns should put pretty much close to a foot of snow on a place like Plattekill and slightly less at Hunter & Windham. The mountains definitely need some snow bad. Could be pretty light too considering the extremely low temperatures.

A foot at Platty could get them to open a midweek day.:)

Well, some of the snow is falling throughout the week, and the majority of it on Friday... and Saturday's are open anyways (and I think Friday's too?).
Anyways... i hope the forecast is right!

Looks like Greek's only getting a couple inches, Snow Ridge, Turin, NY, however, should get up to one foot of LES. They will be open Wednesday, but the temps up there will be brutal. Holiday Valley calling for over a foot over the next several days.

Hopefully this Friday storm shifts a bit northwest. Right now places without mountains like NYC and Boston are in the jackpot zone. Good for the Poconos, Mountain Creek, etc though. But I'd like to see Cats get pounded too.

I'll repost this here:
Friday 1/25
PTO granted, $19.99 tickets off Liftopia for Platty. Excited for my first time there.

I'll be alone, so say hi and ski a few runs with me. Red jacket, black pants, white Palmer skis.​
