First Timer Need Advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


I've been skiing twice in the past, but that was 7-8 years ago.

I will be taking my family on a ski trip this weekend (Sat and Sunday), in the Pocono, PA.
We have with two kids (age 4 and 6). Both are first timers.

But the weather will be 60-70 degree on Friday.
Then Saturday and Sunday will drop down to 40 degree or so.

Would the warm weather on Friday affect the condition of the slope on Saturday and Sunday?

If the slopes turn icy, would it be a good idea to cancel my trip?

Go further north, upstate NY. Supposed to be in the 20s around Hunter, Belleayre.

Problem is we already booked hotel for Saturday and Sunday night in PA, prepaid, non-refundable.


My question is:

Would it be too risky to ski if the weather was too warm the day before?

If too danger, maybe I should do something else like snow-tubing?

It'll be better than you think. Just go for it. At least nobody will get cold.

Well if its prepaid you got nothing to lose....if there is too much slush, you can snow tube, or go to the paintball parks nearby, or other activities in the surrounding areas...spend the day in Jim Thorpe.
