In Michigan we have highs in the upper 40's today and even hitting 50 degrees in some areas, with isolated areas of rain. The wind chill is bringing the temps down supposedly in to the mid 30's here in the afternoon right now at Caberfae. Tonight the temps are supposed to get below freezing and half an inch of snow is possible for tonight.
Caberfae says the hills are not icy and that people are saying its a great day to be out skiing. But I am wondering if this is just a line to get me to come this Sunday where the weather will be a high of 34 degrees. I would hate to travel 2 hours just to find really poor skiing conditions. Last time at Shanty Creek one side of the mountain with oncoming winds was really getting less than ideal snow conditions.
That chunky / clumpy snow and icy conditions kind of stuff.....with temperatures like this today, would you expect the mountain to be less than ideal tomorrow at Caberfae?
The resort replies with "Well we have 64" of base, and we groom daily, no one is reporting anything about ice, etc"
Could you guys care to give me the run down on ski conditions and what I might be looking at tomorrow with these kinds of temperatures today?
