Shawnee?

I was there last weekend it was way thin...no way I was going back this week.
It is indeed Shawnee. Did you get out somewhere else this weekend?

I've seen better closing day conditions than what we skied yesterday. Conditions should be improving quickly with this weather.

I was at Blue last Wednesday and it wasn't nearly that bad. It was better a month ago which is sad. Everyone should be blowing snow this week. Probably hit Hunter this week to check out the new North side trails.

Took my son to Stowe, Smuggs and Sugar this past week. There was no natural snow on the drive up until we got out of Rutland near Killington. Then we woke up the next morning in Stowe to this:

Sadly, that 6” of fresh was tracked out by 9:30. But it sure beat sliding on ice.

Not a good season so far. Creek has been finally blowing for over 24 hour period. Hope some local trails open.

So sad I have yet to get to Jay Peak this season. PS, don't go to Jay... worse place for trees in Northeast.

Have fun!! Hope your son knows how lucky he is. Looks like you could have a nice storm system over the next few days. Good luck.

??? Thats was my favorite part of Jay....although after driving there twice, im just going to fly to utah next time as its closer :)
;) Jay has blown up over the past decade, so many tri-state people blasting up there now. Never used to see so many NY/NJ plates that far North. Now I just tell everyone Jay Peak stinks so less people go.

I only go to Jay for the trees, never ride groomers.

Conditions have improved at Shawnee since last week and a decent amount of snow is forecasted for the coming weekend.

Next up...Sugarbush for the MLK weekend hoping the projected cold temps will keep the crowds inside.

Anyone else get out this weekend?

I was at Mt Snow Friday and Saturday.... Decent enough conditions... but the subzero wind chills did NOT keep anyone away on Saturday!
