Neither is great, but both can be fun. Less likely to get hurt in the rain, but I've grown to not hate ice if it's the only game in town. I've actually had some enjoyable rain/fog skiing days. It is what you make of it. Very frustrating coming off weeks of brutally cold temps here, followed by rain and 60-degree temps.
Did you go yet? The temp is dropping steadily today in the City, and I'm meeting up with some old college friends near Plattekill, NY for the weekend for a trip that was scheduled a while back. The forecast up there looks cold with occasional snow, so I'm hoping for the best. If not, there is always snow tubing and a bar with friends!
