So it looks like its been warm/cold enough for morning ice. Am I correct?
So I am thinking that this weekend (mol sunny) eastern exposures ought to be soft enough to enjoy skiing around 10am?
Southern exposures by 11am?
Western and northern shouldn't be far behind, but Western will only be good for a few hours and northern ought to stay good all day?
I realize there are a lot of variables like altitude. Higher altitudes east and north facing might not soften at all and therefore might not be icy even at dawn. Tree cover will slow down thawing and enhance freezing.
Just looking for some guidance as it has been a long time since skiing conditions where it matters. Last year just seemed like (aside from late december/early January) everything was frozen in the morning and slushy in the afternoon and good for maybe an hour and exposure didn't matter too much because it just got too damn hot anyway.
