No Skiing in the East until December? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
The e-mail from Sunday River today shows they are shooting for opening on the 18th
post #32 of 52
Some people on the SR message board said it was raining in Maine today.

Let's hope they can open this weekend.

I just looked at the 15 day forecast for SW Pa. and I'm encouraged that the nights will be cold enough and the days topping off in the high 30's to get enough snow making in to have some skiing available over Thanksgiving weekend.We'll have to wait and see but there appears to be a decent chance this might occur.

I concur with roundturns...I think at a minimum Holiday Valley should be open on the 25th...I would bet that 7Springs will do everything they can do get open early...they seem to be making big improvements this year....I personally believe that it is all part of a bid for a slots license.

I believe most on this thread have lost their minds...it was 70 degrees this morning throughout western NY and PA. Granted the forecast is for lows dipping below freezing, but the days are above. What resort in its right mind is going to spend the money to lay down a thin blanket of snow overnight to watch it become a creek the next day? The ground/soil temps are still in the low 50's in Central NY. Manmade snow won't stay in these conditions. And even if it did, what pleasure do you get from running the human slalom on a thin band of snow down a beginner trail? I'll wait for decent conditions, thanks.

I am sorry, but currently it is 42 degrees in western Pa at 1,140 ft of elevation

35* in Albany at 8:00 am. It was cold enough to make snow but not until after midnight. Today will be cold but not cold enough to make good snow.

^ It's probably a few degrees colder in the mountains . . . plus, with the right conditions, it's possible to make snow when the temp is over 32 degrees

Seven Springs website shows snow guns on and blowing . At 9 AM 22F temperature. Never say never, I think we have a shot at several slopes being open on the front for Thanksgiving. The temperature dropped about 40 degrees in the last 36 hrs.

Matt,

It may be possible, but then you have to ski on it. About 38 degrees at 10:00 am in Troy, NY an hour and half from K-ton. (Used to be K-mart but now I have a pass). They should be blowing snow up top at that temp.

Seven springs always blows snow when it's cold, they always are the first to open in the mid-atlantic.They are blowing snow because it's Nov. 17 and COLD. Does the gambling commission really care about snowmaking? I think the snow is for the skiers and boarders, not the gamblers.

The South East is looking great.

I spent the day sliding Sugar Mtn. North Carolina. It was great. Packed powder on the flying mile with 1,000 ft. of vertical. They are expecting natural to roll in mid week next week. The mountains of North Carolina are an over looked gem and you won't hear us southern skiers complaign at all."If you want to spend your time setting in the snow on your butt sking is not for you. Try snowboarding. It's part of the sport."

Sugarloaf opened for the season on Friday 11/18 as expected. I probably won't make it up until after Thanksgiving though. www.sugarloaf.com/daily.html
