For the month of November, only .5" of snow fell at the top of Mansfield. Never anything like this since records have be kept.

[The Black Knights voice] I've seen worse! [/The Black Knights voice]

Actually, just as bad, was it 96 when we had that real bad winter??? We were at Sugarbush in January and had to upload to the top half and ski on hay.

What's your choice of ski for knee deep hay?

The Ski, of course, it is made with sagebrush in the core.

That's good stuff. Very funny. I think Finally a semblance of winter weather is coming and will last for awhile. Let's hope.

have faith. It is going to be a great winter. Just a late start. Look at the long-range weather. A lot of snow all next week and temps not getting above freezing.

I am driving up to sugarloaf tonight. Hopefully the rain will change over to snow in the evening and cover up any bare spots on what they are currently skiing.

strike that

update: Killington has shut down for today and Saturday. Sunday River gave a bleak outlook and will only be skiing up top and downloading tomorrow. Loaf might be ok, but definately sketchy tomorrow.

All three should be back up Sunday.

The forecast is fer powerful cold hitting New England Sat night and sticking around all of next week. They'll be tons of snowmaking activity this week and next weekend will be a different story.

the only bright spot is that with all the rain, the snow making ponds shoud be full.

This is EASILY the worst November for New England skiing since the pre-snowmaking days...

Liberty Mountain has told us that they are going to try to blow snow this coming week and open on Friday. Where's that plucky New England spirit? If Liberty can pull it off, any of the Vermont resorts should be in great shape.

Yeah, but look at these temps. Everything will be coming together by next weekend ...

if it's any consolation, we're not fairing that much better here in Tahoe.

In Toronto the last 2 days have been incredibly depressing, with constant rain. I am having a very hard time with this gloomy weather.

The good news is that the temps are dropping this weekend and all week next week local hills can make snow. I have to believe that this weekend is the last time I am going mountain biking. With the dropping temps the ground should be frozen and I won't have to deal with all the mud, but enough is enough, I badly want to ski.

A potential storm for Sunday night into Monday is generating a lot of chatter:

Snowstorm Mid-Atlantic to New England Monday

Eastern US Weather Forums <-- See the Important Topics section, the comments on Sunday Nite and Monday. These guys don't hesitate to call something a 'wishcast' when they think it is, so far they haven't.

A front just came through and almost took the roof off the house. Big winds plus thunder and lightning. Temp dropped 13* and then went up 15*. Meanwhile it's dumpin drops and life as we would like to know it - isn't. No skiing tomorrow.

Same here -too much rain - need to build an ARK
Now sustained high wind gusts and perhaps a TRACE of snow by am are predicited!
