I returned yesterday from Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia, about the only place around here that was open. I think we got lucky in our timing, arriving Saturday with a bit of new snow and leaving Wednesday in the rain. None of the advanced terrain was open except for a couple of short mildly steep pitches, so I was able to focus on my youngest son who is finally starting to lose his fear of heights and gain confidence.

I hope to go skiing tomorrow finally!  The resorts in Western NY are slowly opening a few trails.  I ususally wait till more terrain is open so I won't get bored silly, but damn, I need to go skiing!  I need to get some time on my new boots before my race season starts in 2 weeks, well that is if we have anything open at that time.  More rain and warm weather is in the forecast for the Christmas weekend.  Bummer!

 

I guess we have been spoiled a bit the last couple of years, where we have had very good early season conditions.

 Skied the WROD Saturday and Sunday at Timberline. Our forecast is rain changing to snow tomorrow but daytime highs above freezing this weekend. We might have a two trails open from the top for Christmas. I hope when this is over that we get slammed, hard to remain calm, trying, trying.

My wife and I will be up at Canaan Sunday and Monday morning and I'm hoping to get a few runs in each of those days.  It looks like they have at least one top to bottom run open today.  I just hope that have it open for Christmas and the day after.  

 

Honestly though, it is good the terrain is limited for this trip.  My wife would be very unhappy if I spent all my time skiing and not time with her (she doesn't ski).  So having limited terrain so I don't feel bad about only skiing a couple of hours for this trip is a good thing for marital bliss wink.gif.

 

But it better start getting cold and even snowing soon.  I'm getting skiing withdraw.

I played golf today. That about sums up the Mid-Atlantic weather in my area.

Getting cooler here for the next few days.  WRODs will be opening back up a little wider for a bit.  Something tells me lift tickets won't still be 20 bucks tomorrow like they were last week..  Got new skis for the kid on the way.  We'll probably go fight the masses anyway.

Cold, but no snow.  Does not look good until after the first.

Coach, did you go low? I almost went out Thursday PM but ended up getting off track and didn't go. It started guess what raining again later in the afternoon!

I alked and carried 9 holes this PM. lOW 40's temps with a bright sun. Certainly didn't go low, bit it was fun and I adn't played in a couple of weeks. Would rather be skiing for sure. The weather is very stubborn around here. I guess some rain tomorrow and through New Years the snow making window doesn't look too great.

I actually went skiing at Hunter, NY on the 23rd and I was pleased with the conditions given what they had to work with..

 

I'm heading up to Stowe on Wednesday for a few days..

As I always say, I shot par.....then I played the last 4 holes.

 

I'm heading to Charleston, SC tomorrow to watch my youngest play in a basketball tournament. I hope to get a few rounds in down there.

Hands down this is the worst Christmas week conditions I've seen anywhere ever, even before all areas had snow making capabilities.  Can anybody believe this trail is listed as "open" right now???

Potential for an inch of rain Tues. pm in Vermont, then cold.  Thursday and Saturday may offer a "Clipper".  Not much snow though and poor base builder.   May see a change in the Jet after New Years.  Hudson Bay is finally ice covered which mean colder air from the north.  But the outlook is still not great.

At Huntah now. First day out, could be worse.

That picture taken at Sugar reminds me of an old article years back in one of the ski magazines on skiing in Scotland I believe it was an it was captioned Heather Hopping and the slope had sections of snow interspersed with equally large sections of tall grasses that had no snow covered. How you made it to the bottom without taking your skis off was beyond me.

 

 

To be the eternal optimist about the current situation at Sugar , judging from all the snow cannons in the picture and the other snow making equipment if it ever can get cold for a few days in a row, you'll be up and running.

 

But it is what it is and its about as bad as it gets unfortunately. We're supposed to actually have the rain that is falling today turn to snow tonight out at the Springs and they hope to pick up a couple of inches and turn colder. We'll see!

Beech is better, at least skiable.

The "suckles" have been two-three days cold enough to blow snow, five days warm to melt it all away, rinse and repeat... pun intended

How did you manage to get a post Christmas photo of a Huntaaaahh  trail without at least four people wearing Jets or Giants jackets colliding with each other? ...And especially with West only have open?   This really is great conditions for that mountain, especially compared to what the Mid Atlantic is dealing with.
