Travelled from Central NH back to Syracuse today and got some drive-by views of several ski areas. Sunapee - Almost no cover at all. A few white spots near the top of the mountain at the edges of the trails. Okemo - This was from a long way off. Upper mountain appeared to have quite a bit of cover, but I was looking from at least 20 miles away in Claremont, NH. Magic - Bare Bromley - This was the closest view (I use VT 11 which goes right by Magic and Bromley). They appeared to be attempting to get 1 run open under the main chair. It had good cover in some spots interlaced with wide bands of grass and gravel. Stratton - It appears they're working hard to get 4-5 runs open from the summit. Depending on the light, the cover looked good to sketchy. At 12:00 noon, the outside air thermometer on my car said it was 36 at the base of Bromley. 38 at the base of Magic which is quite a lot lower than Bromley's.Not looking great for Thanksgiving....Highs for Manchester, VT for Sun, Mon, and Tue are 48, 48, 52 with rain on Tue and barely getting below freezing any time before Wed.
