You going to join the Epic-Mainers?

Heading up to the North Shore of Boston tomorrow to stay with a cousin and do day trips to NH, probably hitting Cannon and Wildcat and one other TBD. Looks I timed this right for once. Maybe this will make up for my trip to New Mexico at the end of February where I got skunked and got sick too - got on one day at a very firm Santa Fe before giving up on Taos. Taking along my old Pocket Rockets.

Friday should be the best day of the week in VT. High winds forecasted with the storm should shut down most upper mountain lifts in central and northern VT on wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.  I figure the conditions thursday will be tough to travel in. Friday looks prime. Im headed to MRG and the Bush friday- sunday. hopefully no one follows me. :D

Up to two feet expected in the hills of my home state.

The Almighty just loves a Maine Gathering.

Thanks I appreciate the info. Booked a room and going to hit Gore on Saturday.

Just a friendly reminder that while all of Northern New England will be hit hard, the bulls eye of this storm appears to be the mountains of Western Maine -- Saddleback and Sugarloaf.

 

Right where the New England Gathering is headed.  :cool  Feel free to join us for some New England Epicness.

Powder (well, heavy powder anyway) day here in Western NY tomorrow and it just happens to be my day off!! No race skis tomorrow................let's hope Bristol only grooms a couple of slopes to keep the whiners somewhat quiet.

post #16 of 25
Heavy powder and low viz at Ragged in NH today. First soft snow I've skied all year. Loon or Cannon tmw, depending on wind, Cannon or Wildcat Friday
post #17 of 25

Killington skied very well today.  1-2 inches at 9AM and coming down at about 1 inch an hour.  Somewhere between 10 and 12 when I quit at 3:30.  And no wind!!  Still coming down and expected to go through tomorrow.  Looks like 2 feet plus is in the cards.

post #18 of 25

Anyone know where the rain/snow line is?  I'm thinking of Mt. Snow on Friday, but the webcams sure look more like rain than snow.  If K-ton got 10", I can pretty much see that Mt. Snow didn't.

Thoughts?

Gore has 11 inches so far and they are predicting 26 inches.

post #20 of 25

All rain here, but a friend skied Stratton today, not much further north, and said it was all snow.  Right on the line here, I guess -- and I'm guessing "powder" is a relative term.  More northern locations should be killer.  Sunapee, only 50 minutes north on questionable roads, has gotten three inches with another 6-10 predicted.

post #21 of 25

Middlebury Snowbowl had about 10" when I left at 2pm, still coming down hard here at 6pm, tracks were filling in up on the mt in about 1-1 1/2 hours and no real traffic on the hill maybe 30 people tops.I wouldn't call it blower snow but it didn't seem that heavy, definitely not heavy or very wet.Hopefully winds die down for tomorrow, right now its howling at my house.

Wow! Too bad we only have one day to ski. We could only get the grandparents to watch the kids for 1 day. Hopefully, it won't be too crowded. Never been to Gore before. Any advice on how to make the most out of one day? I'm advanced and my girlfriend is intermediate but she's gutsy and willing to push herself. She has skied trees before but I don't want to take her into trees that are too steep.

Looks like the bullseye was Killington and north.  A full 2 feet here at Killington and similar amounts north.  Okemo and south got much less due to rain and mixed precip.

 

Great skiing today at Killington, but windy and cold.

post #24 of 25

About 15" here in Western NY-cold but sunny! Great to ski powder at my home hill!

Interesting. Kmart was only claiming 14" from the storm. With only MRG and Jay claiming over 20" (22"). VT only for this discussion
