WNY Snow!!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Listening to the radio this morning on my way into work, it sounds like the small amount of wet snow that the area south of Buffalo was supposed to receive over the next few days has turned into much larger accumulations than expected. By tomorrow morning the hill tops are expected to come close to a foot of new [wet] snow (falling at up to 2 inches an hour). This is a good sign for our season around here. Is anyone down there shoveling today?

Love to bushwacker, but I have this thing called a JOB, It puts food on my table and buys me ski gear.

BTW, its still snowing. We have a good inch or two more than when I took that pic this morning.
This >> << is going to get a lot of use today!!

I suspect Crystal will be open first, Thanksgiving day! They pride themselves on snowmaking, and have put some new snow guns on line this year.
Caberfae is saying the Fri of Thanksgiving weekend.

Boyne usually opens for Thanksgiving weekend too!

Sitting in my office here at Peek'n Peak, looking at the 6-7 inches on the slopes, when the snow lightens up enough to see the slopes. The weatherman is calling for 5-6 more by tomorrow. May have to take all that new Head gear out and make some turns in the morning. lol

I want to say one year between 1968-1971, HV opened up right after Halloween and continued operations until closing in the spring. Maybe I'm wrong, but I believed this happened. I was in junior high school at the time.

I have my brother coming in later in the week from Chicago and we planned on playing golf but the weather might be an issue. Its been a number of years since we had decent Thanksgiving skiing in SW Pa. It would be sweet.

Our snow plows were out already doing the streets (Erie) and it is still coming down. Biggest problem is the snow is really wet, the ground is not anywhere near being frozen so there is as much slush underneith as snow sitting out there.

We have about 4" on the ground as it's been melting as fast as it's comming down. I'd say all total, we've had about 12".

One of my material suppliers just told me this afternoon that the snow was knee deep at his house this morning. He lives in Arkwright up on the ridge.

Still snowing hard here right now. The thing that excites me the most right now is the thought of having snow for opening day of Deer season. That's a good posibility.

Skiing? no. But I did make a few runs across the field on my Snowmobile.
