Snow in the east pic

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
The snow with the fall foliage still going on is special in New England. From this morning from the bunny slope area of Sugarbush's LP base area.  10"-12" on the upper mountain.

The Bush opens week before Thanksgiving. With temps in the 50's next week and the ground not frozen the resorts in the east making snow are going to have a hard keeping it unless they blow a ton. If kmart and SR do open early, 500+ skiers/riders on whatever limited terrain they will open with does not sound like a pleasent experience to me.

Wow!  That is an amazing picture.

 Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!  10-12 eh?  Sounds delicious!  

I'm going to be up at Magic this weekend doing volunteer work and they might get snow Saturday night.  I'm not expecting anything but I'm bringing boots & skis just in case...  You never know when Ullr might bestow upon us...  a big dump... (That was for you, TC)

Man, I'm getting it from all angles now. I got a voicemail from my friend in Burlington today. She said "Snowing here in Burlington... how's the weather down there in PA?" I cursed her. Not with swear words. Voodoo.

Don't worry PA. In a day or two, snow is coming your way too. (in the North anyway)

I hope Magic gets dumped on this winter as they need all the help they can get. It's a big mountain(eastern perspective) but with only 16,000 skier visits last winter they are really behind the 8-ball and their co-op plan only brought in 30% of the people they were hoping for.

Ah, saw flakes for about 2 hours today, and my mountain got about 3 inches at the summit. I'm a happy Bear. Everybody around here says they've never seen it snow this early.

Tell me about it!  There has been such a huge push this year to get people to go there...  I love the fact that there's such a big internet buzz about the place this year, hopefully it will make a big impact!  It really deserves so much more attention than it gets.  Magic is such an amazing place in so many ways!

It's snowing pretty good in Southern NH today...not sticking, but some pretty good swirling going on out there.
I saw in Waterville Valley this AM that they must have made snow at the peak, and True Grit and its neighbors had some snow piled up on their edges.
WooHoo!!

Cool pic, hopefully there's less than 6 weeks until winter.

When there's snow.  Their bigest problem is the slow start and the thaw cycle.  It's all about the woods and trails that follow the natural flow of the landscape.  With no snowmaking and low altitude, Magic lives in pain.  People show up when it snows.

Ok, I'll ruin the surprise...  They're repairing the snowmaking system this year.  So if we can get some early snow and some people going to the damn place, there's a strong chance they'll be blowing down the fake stuff to keep more of the real stuff when it comes.  Hopefully this record cold + el nino + atmospheric ash = huge snow year.

Sunday River already has enough that they have been open the last two weekends...hopefully other resorts will be following suit soon (looking like a decent amount of snow the weekend after next)
