Assuming you didn't expect 7 untracked pow days in early Feb...not sure why you would be changing plans?
I was talking with a friend yesterday about ski vacations, and the number of times either of us has had a really decent powder filled vacation. Because we both have work situations, which make it very difficult to take time off on a whim, we both seem to always miss out on the parts of the season that deliver the goods. I've personally only canceled a ski vacation once, when I really didn't have a lot of dollars locked up. So, for people who have that luxury to cancel, and re-book, I have a certain amount of envy.
On another note, I'm looking at the GFS models, and they really don't look so hot 7 days out.Maybe you could point me to something more positive?
Here in the PNW, they are talking a 4-5 day High pressure settling in with mild temps. So, I'm not going to be missing out while in CO this up coming week. Nothing like taking a ski trip, to say, some place like Austria, and then getting skunked. Meanwhile, you are looking at the snow reports for your home mtn, and they are getting 5'-6' of snow in one week. (Happened to me last year!)
As I said in my earlier post, I am happy to have the kind of coverage they have now, as opposed to skiing man made that they had at the begining of January, with basically no base.
