storm totals - Page 2

post #31 of 57
Snow around here was brief - mostly we got graupel and sleet. 6 inches of extreme density crapola ... but it's coverage anyway.

S Vt should be nice - will try my cousin up there and see what he got in S Londonderry

Sugarloaf last reported 17" at 3:30pm today. It has continued to snow very hard and is expected to intensify tonight before coming to an end tomorrow morning. Things are beginning to set up for a very nice spring.
The skiing has been and will continue to be very, very, very, very, GOOD.

I love my 'loaf!!

I skiied at Windham in NY from 9 to 1 and it was snowing heavy the whole time. The kind of snow kept changing back and forth and was kind of heavy but it was very fun. The mountain was empty. The website said they got about 3 feet. Have fun on the slopes this weekend. I had to get mine in today because I'm going to Vegas for my brothers bachelor party. Too bad he's not a ski lover.

45" at Sugarbush and still snowing hard and the wind has picked up. This pic is at my place along the Mad River at about 5:30, more on the hill about 3 miles from me but much higher in elevation. Someone measured the snow at the base around 4:30, it was 40". I had a hard time finding my car as all the cars were just big white lumps....:lol:

I just got home from skiing bell to bell at Stowe. It takes me a half hour to get home, but just now it took 5! The snow is waist deep in my driveway. On my last runs today it waist to chest deep in places. Not exactly blower light though, sometimes it was like skiing into a wall.

Good luck. I'm hoping to make first chair at Stowe, but the plows aren't winning.

Waiting to ski

I'm sitting here, it's 8:00 and they havn't plowed my driveway yet. This is killing me.

We ended up with about 13" of snow total but it's had to tell as the wind was relentless piling up drifts as high as 4 feet. I've already shoveled my decks here more than all of last year. I'm guessing we also have more snow on the ground than i've seen in years. Mother Nature has more than made up for the lack of snow in december and early January. Light snow again today and below zero temps, wind chills like 30 below. This last snowfall was heavier than usual even with the cold temps. I'm going to hit the Snowmobile trails with some friends today. Ski tomorrow, give the road crews a chance to get the roads in shape.

Sick Storm....long overdue

Jay................59"
Stowe............48"
MRG...............48"

As bad as it was in Nov/Dec and early Jan it's now about as good as it gets in the East!!

We got to Jay a little after 7:30 AM this morning. Minus 10 degrees, winds minimum of 40 mph with incredible gusts. Also still snowing. It was NASTY. We talked to patrol buddies, they figured lifts won't open today. So we turned around and came home, husband and I are both at work, with plans to take off tomorrow instead. (Yes, I know we could do some hiking, but it was so frigid it seemed like a better idea to go back tomorrow instead.)

Jay, Stowe and Sugarbush reporting lifts on windhold still and it's after 10 AM. Word is that most of New England is on wind hold. The wind is wicked here at the house. I don't think anyone is missing much right now.

We were so bummed as we drove home, we kept thinking we should turn around and go back, but I think we made the right decision. It'll still be there tomorrow...

I heard about the wind hold too, and it reminds me of all those times I was at Sugarbush South after a major dump and the only lift running was the Gate House. At least the Sleeper trails were fun until they got skied out.

I got their e-mail snow report this morning with 48" of snow measured and, you guessed it, only Gate House running. They said they were hoping to get the Castle Rock double open at some point. Seems like every major dump is followed by a wind hold to torment us....

No No, I just tell them not to open until tomorrow when I'm up at the lift at 9AM. That's why the lift's are not running.

went to Jay today for some east coast powder skiing, didnt happen. It was blowing 70 at the base and 100+ at the top. No lifts and the kids i was with didnt want to sack up and hike. Then drove to bolton to find blown in snow with the consistancy of wet cement. Sad that bolton doesnt have the slope to make powder skiing actually skiing, its more like waist deep fixed heel cross country

miserable failure of a powder day
post #55 of 57
It was a nice pronblem to have. Stowe did run lifts today. At first just the double, but bt lunch the Quad came on line. Most of the other lifts stayed down though. Some for wind, but mostly because they had to dig out the buried chairs. Some of them had six feet of windpacked snow drifted in to the load/unload zones.
post #56 of 57
The Bush did get Castlerock spinning around noon, got several firsthand reports that the skiing was "unreal". In all fairness to the resorts mentioned high winds were forecasted for today so it should not have been a surprise to anyone.
post #57 of 57
Magic was open yesterday and winds were OK most of the day except after 3 they got a bit hairy. They claim to have "only" gotten 24 . There was a lot of wind pack - the drifts had some structure to em

Am thinking of the Bush or maybe BV tommorrow ....
