Whats going on around New England? It rained all day here on the Maine coast but no idea how it's going inland.

Rain yesterday here in the interior. At least to 1700'. Probably also up to 3000' I'm guessing. Goopy wet snow that could corn up a little this week?

^^^ What he said. It rained lightly for a couple of hours yesterday. Looks like early spring here.

I was up at Mt Washington on Sunday. It was warm and there was temp inversion. I skied the Sherburne and the snow up top was nice and soft but it firmed up and got scratchy at the bottom in the fog. It rained everywhere up in that area all the way to the summits from about noon til after dark. They got almost half and inch in north conway. Skied Sunday River yesterday on a $23 special and surprisingly they recovered pretty well from the rain. Anything that was groomed was nice and edgeable with only a few ice spots. Most of the ungroomed and natural trails were either closed or looked treacherous.

Heavy rain in Vermont in some places Saturday afternoon, light rain in others Sunday. I don't think anyplace escaped completely unscathed. Still a fair amount of base though so groomers are good.

Plattekill received the full impact, 2-3'. Skiing was fantastic yesterday.

I rode my Voile Drifters for the first time in a few seasons. What fun.

Finger lakes got it pretty good too, especially at the higher elevations. Probably 16+ inches.

Unfortunately it wasn't great snow. Came down really wet and heavy and temps dropped yesterday at the high elevations, so it was really stiff. Odd stiff though... you'd sink down a lot but breaking trail was brutal and going down was really slow, even on steeper shots. The XC aspect was actually great once you got back in a trail you broke - the snow was fast and glidey, even with wider skis.

The Laurentiennes snow pack has held up better than New England's. We were up at Mont Tremblant for Wednesday-Thursday skiing. It snowed about 6" and Skiing was good.

Wednesday we were salivating at their glades but didn't dare because of the hardpack in there. The snow made all the difference for Thursday.

It started snowing hard in Montreal as we toured McGill Friday afternoon. Thought it might have been the big nor'easter starting. Alas, an hour east of the city it stopped with narry a drop of precip all the way home. Cannon was typical porcelain yesterday. :cry:

I used to love skiing Plattekill. That must have been an awesome day. I have a feeling I have had my last outing of the season on my Schusters.... Hope I'm wrong.

I skied Stratton today and it was fantastic. It was all groomed but it was soft as a baby's bottom . The only ice was in exposed areas that got wind scrubbed.

Folks from Jay Peak and Smuggs areas came to Plattekill for the storm. They were not disappointed. The little mountain that could
