That is pretty much what I do where ever I am at. Way more reiable than the Weather Cutie. Plus the gathering is a month away. What happens this weekend is of no consequence to what we will have in 4 weeks. Around here we could lose it all and get right back again in the span of a week or two.
When you plan on attending a gathering like this, the weather and conditions are secondary to the comraderie and good times that we will share. If the skiing is really good, then that is just a bonus!
See everyone soon. But do prey for that bonus!
