Who's Skiing Tomorrow in Mid Atlantic?

Soggy and rainy pretty much desribes things around here. Remarkably areas are still open. The eternal optimist in me will motivate me to head out tomorrow AM for a few hours unless its downpour. Tomorrow will make me appreciate the good days more , provided we have some"good days" in our future.

Flirting with the thought of heading to Colorado right after the first of the year, if our winter continues to stall.

If by skiing you mean getting 18 holes in the morning, then going biking in the afternoon, then yea, I'm skiing..................

My son and I went up to Beech mtn last weekend and the conditions really stunk so were just going to take this weekend off. I cant see paying holiday rates to ski in conditions that are this bad. I feel for the folks who work at the ski resorts here in NC. Hopefully the season will last longer into March this year so they can makeup some of their loses.

How about we take some turns on the barstools at the Foggy?

OK. I plan on being there unless its a heavy rain event. I'll buy you a beer after coming all the way from the Sierra to witness a snowless Christmas . I'll check the Goggle around 11:30 for your wear abouts. I'm 6 feet tall, will have the hideous white and red Atomic boots on , moustache.

If that doesn't work look for somebody crying in their beer about the lousy winter we're having.

OK, and I'll take some runs if SpringsRegular makes the hookup.
Arcteryx red on red over black. Look for snowskates.

I skied Wintergreen on Thursday. Snow is getting marginal, but I still had some decent "spring" skiing in the morning. Light rain showers showed up after lunch and stuck around all afternoon. I decided to bro it out and switched to my GoreTex shell after lunch for a few more hours of skiing. As bad as it's been, I was happy to get any skiing in. I wouldn't have done it on a weekend with crowds though. I can handle rain, but not crowds, and certainly not both!

Looks like we will get some nighttime snowmaking temps starting Sunday night, so perhaps things will begin to look up. roundturns, I may see you out in CO if winter really craps out locally!

I didn't go. Got in the car backed out of the driveway and just couldn't get the mojo going to drive out an hour and fifteen minutes. I apologize for saying I would go then backing out.

Heading to Kton for some slushing.

I'm waiting until Christmas Day. I'm going to make some turns on the road bike instead.

A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about heading up to NC to get some turns in for a few days. Now, it's all about the road bike because skiing just doesn't fit this 60 degree plus weather.

The "frostbite" series regatta at the Monmouth boat club has turned into the "not so chilly" series. At this rate, we will be taking over the ice boat club next door on a permanent basis.

Conditions are grim here in the mid-Atlantic. Whitetail is closed. Here's a current webcam shot of our blue slopes:

That does it. I'm going out to climb some stadium steps and work out my frustration.

After this season's less-than-stellar start, I expect to see a few Mid-Atlantic and New England areas scale back operations for the remainder of the year, and some to even fold after this season.

Many of these areas poured a lot of money into snowmaking during recent cold snaps, and it's mostly for naught. And for these areas, the Christmas holidays are paydirt: lose this coming week, and your goose is cooked for the season.

I'm in northern Connecticut as I write this, on holiday, and my ski equipment stayed home in DC, as there's nothing of any quality within a 2.5-hour radius of where I am. I'll wait to don the boards until I'm in Utah in early January, unless there's a good cold wave in the Mid-Atlantic in the next week.

But I'm not holding my breath.

The bike is going to get a lot of use this winter.....
