I skied Killington today. Temps in the upper 20s. Surfaces pretty good but fog made for poor visibility. Very light snow all afternoon. Looks like it may be mixing a bit now (8:45 PM) here atmy condo but looks like no major damage. With snowmaking and grooming it will be a non-event in a few days. Does look like a cold weekend (temps low teens and high single digits during the day) but some sun. Sounds like January in New England.
yea, the whether looks imo to be pretty good for fri/sat skiing to be honest.
A tad cold being in the teens but it beats 0 and worse which we've all experienced at some points. And most important is that winds are expected about only 5mp both days. Wind makes a huge difference for the feeling of chill temps and also freezing things to ice not to mention any snow blowing would be more calm so along with partly cloudy (meaning some sun) it actually all seems like a pretty good time for hiting the slopes. I can easily deal with 18* especially if not windy and some sun too. Im actually pretty happy about that. I mean Ive driven up in the past to rain or to sub zero windchills closing sections of mountains. I will gladly take 12 to 20* with minimal wind and even some sun :). Not even close to what bad alternatives could be.
Seems like the rain expected been mostly a mix but expected to now be mostly snow dusting inch/two or so through next 24/36 hrs so that too seems to be working much better than it could have. All being said Id expect some fairly decent conditions come fri/sat I suppose. Certainly not going to back out of this one as there is certainly no snow or skiing in my backyard in Jersey going to happen so my direction as of thursday afternoon will be north for about 4-5 hrs :)
