The right moment, might have been difficult to predict.
There were some incredible winds!
You forgot to mention that there was way too little wind.
Plattekill was very good yesterday. The most crowded I have ever seen there but still lift lines were no more than a few minutes long and that was only btw10am-noon.
Warm temps made for spring conditions and you could tell that there was not much base there as some areas are really getting skied off and exposing grassy spots.
They kept the lifts spinning until 5 pm yesterday to take advantage of the nice conditions.
Yeah same at Plattekill. Conditions were very good up until about 2 pm and then deteriorated pretty quickly so we ended a bit earlier than usual.
I'm planning on going up to Plattekill Saturday, and hoping things are holding up ok after the day or two of milder temps around here.
Sage advice. It's usually better than you think it will be. Today was forecast as showers and rain in the 40's. Brought my Soul 7's to Berkshire East and pretty much wished I'd had my carving skis most of the day. It was firm, a bit icy in the morning, even though it didn't go below 32 all night. Go figure.
It didn't rain hard enough to be a problem until at least 1. Skiing was fun.
Yesterday was in my mind possibly the last groomer-zoomer day at Wachusett, after a couple of hours of very good skiing, it started to snow. Hard. 1" of snow fell making for some creamy surfaces for the next couple of hours. Felt like a gift. The last snowfall of the season possibly.
Didn't expect that.
Yeah, once the season starts, I just go and deal with it. I look at the weather report only to see what kind of sweater to put on.
Bretton Woods was divine today -- sun, soft spring snow, just cold enough to hold its shape but warm enough to move out of the way as you passed by.
It was just perfect, for a day of easy late season skiing.
I never focus my attention to Gunstock however this past week, the MWV got snow while mid to lower western part of NH got the wet stuff. Ski season is too short (in NE) so I try to make the best of it when I can.
Okemo's base was solid, for sure. Can't complain about that. It'll be more fun when it softens up, though.
