Seven Springs Has Received more snow in the past 48 hrs than anyother ski resort!

This is being reported on the website 27 in. in the last 48 hrs with 18 in. more expected by Sat!!! The world must be ending this is pretty unbelievable.

I'm going to make every effort to be there tomorrow but can't guarantee it. The 4 wheel drive express went today and he wasn't sure he could go tomorrow. I've driven out there in various cars the past 30 seasons probably a total of over a thousand times. And some have been pretty rugged trips, but its been a long long time since this type of snowfall has made its presence. The video on the website looks unbelievable.

Don't fail me know 2002 Chrysler LXI 176,000 miles fairly good tire tread! I should drive my wife's BWW 328 all wheel drive but knowing my luck that's when I would wreck!

The plan is to get there early enough to make the opening bell and do laps over on the backside high speed. Say hello if you see a guy in a red jacket black pants (probably be a couple hundred people in the same colors) skiing on K2 PE's one ski has a Alta sticker the other ski a Vail sticker.

I made it out there today for  the opening bell and in my 30 years of skiing there , I just can't remember it being any  better. The report said 5 inches more over night but it sure seemed like at least several inches more. The thing is though they had 30 inches the prior two days. The pine trees on the road in are so laden with snow it  reminded me of the old movie "The Shining"

Big time fun for sure, and when I left at 1:30 I was skiing the front side in boot top still.  Really unbelievable for this area and if we could go into a snowy ice age in the Mid Atlantic I'd die a happy man. 

 

I had one of my customers call me from SLC on the way home, he was going up to Alta for a few hours to ski groomers. He can't remember conditions being so poor in January. I'm sure they will get their's before its over!

just because the conditions suck doesnt mean you ski groomer it just means your not that good.

Good stuff from springs no pictures from any of you though?

No pictures unfortunately . Should have taken a camera and taken some for sure. There is an unbelievable amount of snow out there. Yesterday on the website the have their new spokesgirl Anna talking about you should really be here Blah blah blah and when watching this you see all the snow befind here and in the trees and its like Oh my Gawd, they really have been dumped on.

It was really special today. Maybe my statement in the last 30 years its never been better might be a bit over the top but maybe not. Back in the mid 90"s they had a couple of huge 30 inch dumps one season almost back to back Maybe 96? Can't be sure now.

Its too bad Bushwacker when you were starnded much of last year here this didn't happen, but  when its all said and done I'd put money on Stowe receiving more than twice the snow we have down here. Because its so unusual here it makes that much more special.

It was cold today aout 7-8 F but not windy which made the skiing that much more enjoyable.

Sounds great down there.
Y'all didn't get the 50mph winds like Vermont?
I remember 2003 January - Utah had the worst snow in 26 years I think. Vermont was "getting dumped on" Utah was still better.

Pandita,
How much did the Diva hit you up for that?  Haven't browsed her website but she just might be getting close to Palin......;-)

Went to Springs today and the conditions were great!  2-4" overnight and snowed off and on all day today.  Actually skied through untracked powder in Western PA this morning.

Cold and moderately windy today.  Never got above the mid teens all day.  Sun peaked through a few times, but never warmed anything up much.  Headed back Thursday and it's supposed to be mid 30's and sunny.  It will feel like spring skiing if it's that warm.

Wow Mike, I was there with my daughter but with offspring in tow, it was still a late arrival even if the offspring is an adult 20 year old. For some reason I was thinking of you while I was there. Jess and I did laps on the Gunnar 6 all day so I skied as much natural, trees and soft bumps as we could find there. ever made the front side, parked up top, 'n'at.

I just got back from Blue Knob and it was a typical BK day. High wind and snow blowing, wind chill had to be in the singles. Most was virgin cord but all the natural was white plate with wind pack drift, a little slow but ski able. There were still some soft lines to be found but if it were groomers you were craving, the boulevards were buff.

Sorry we missed each other LHC!  Headed up again tomorrow, should be like spring skiing, 40 and sunny.  

Shoot me a PM whenever you are headed up to Springs and I'll try to meet up.

I don't think you met my buddy Marcus. He just had a knee replace this fall and he's ready to get back on his skis. Marc is a very good skier and has pushed me for years. We are headed up to Hidden Valley for some cheap, easy turns on Friday. I'm still daydreaming about a quick day trip to T-line this weekend, tempted to pull the trigger tomorrow but my wife wants me to a responsible home owner instead. I could show up at Seven Springs in the next week. I'll PM.
