We took a day to ski Gore on Tuesday - found some nice conditions - the drive was longer than usual as the roads were a mess with the storm still happening all the way there in the morning - got stuck behind slow cars and trucks here and there for long periods of time. Arrived about 45 minutes late from normal start at least but just about nobody there at all for the whole day. Very nice skiing albeit a little heavy most places. Plenty of coverage and pretty rare that ice encountered underneath. Supposedly they've had about 15 inches in the last week and that seems about right. A lot of their terrain is now open with more opening up - weather looks like a good trend for the next week as well. Just figured I'd post this in case any of you are interested. I think there is a good chance we will be back one of the days this weekend.

I'm officially strapped into the hope and fear roller coaster for the snow accumulation forecast that's begun for the next three storms. Accumulations for Thursday's storm just got upgraded in my zone. Storm track must be shifting north. At least for now...

As is usually the case with these storms these days I can't figure out who is getting what… I'm wondering if it's worth a trip up to Mt.A tomorrow. They are saying coastal but it looks to me like the mountains are getting it.

And, speaking of getting it… we may get 12-18" Sunday night.

Visited WVT glades last Friday. Given current and forecasted precip.
would think the upper trail is very much in play.

Well Vermont got hit good with this latest storm. Looked at the forecast and decided to take Monday off...good decision skied Sunday and Monday at Magic and they got 12-15 of blower Sunday into Monday...best ski day in memory and surprisingly no wind holds on the lifts Monday, but Magic's lift is pretty sheltered. Being as far from the slopes as I am, it is hard to hit powder days, so I was lucky that the forecasts were correct earlier in the week. Still smiling today as I get back to work. Hope others were able to hit it as well.

re: Maine this year, my thoughts turn to Saddleback where the snow keeps getting deeper over a huge 4000-footer with no lifts running, they're going to have rename it to "Powder Mountain"

I'm a big fan of 6-8" storms that over-perform. Especially in the snow desert between the Greens and the Whites.

my yard looks the same way! I love the way the dogs expect to go skiing every time it snows.

It's officially a good winter. Snow depth over 90 inches at Mansfield & Hermit Lake stakes.

Wow, went to Abram today and skied about 30 " of fresh. They were closed from Monday till today so we had the big Sunday night storm total plus last nights 14 inches. And they did 0 grooming. Amazing. There were only around 100 skiers there so it was mostly untracked in the woods and glades all day. What a great powder vibe!
