Here in Maine the snow level is at 1,000ft.

The mountains are building a good base right now. March AND April will be off the charts good.!!!

Better load up some avvy control on 44 and K27

Don't know about everyone else, but, it snowed 12" yesterday, today it is washing away in a Biblical flood.
Rain in Feb. sucks. Happy I'm leaving for Tahoe this week.

Well, good luck to you guys. My flight out of Newark got cancelled! :-( 

Not a big fan of Newark myself but it's a grou trip so I have to go with the flow. Besides, it's not like there're huge choice of flights going to Telluride...

Thanks, you shut out or just delayed? We got another flying southwest outta Philly, he's concerned, and another flying out of Ft Lauderdale, he's  not.

Hunter is at 65" and counting. Meanwhile, we got our first "real" snow by my house, about a foot and a half so far. Very heavy like wet cement however, but good for the backyard skiing on the hills in my neighborhood (about 8 turns worth) because you don't hit the bottom.

Don't know. We're booked as a group with a travel agent. So it's more complicated. We'll surely be split up. Just hope I won't end up drawing the short stick.

About 12-18 inches fell where I live, went for some backyard skiing in the woods yesterday.

This has been a big storm for us here in Maine. The mountains have got hammered with snow over the past 4 days. 50+ inches.!!

We will have a great base come April.!!

Thanks, slightly outdated though.

Hunter finishes with SEVEN FEET of snow. Dammnnnnn... that's probably a record for them in a 3 day time span (yea, I believe it was 3 days--wed, thurs, and fri)

Hunter reporting 7ft & Windham reporting 5ft.?

Well, Hunter's better . Or more realistically, Hunter's reporting at the summit (I know that) and Windham might be reporting at the base which could cause some variation between snow totals.

 Hunter is probably the only mountain there with enough pitch to ski that snow. Of course I'm thinking K-27, but the runout at the bottom would be a problem. I doubt they have uch experience with avi control either, but it seems like that would be a possibility, doesn't it?

I was actually joking about the avalanche part but I don't think an avalanche would happen on it due to the snow being so wet, it is probably a little sticky so stabilising well.

Well, Bellayre's cathedral brook is probably amazing and I'd think that the double diamonds @ Windham are decent pitch to get going so should be amazing too. Hunter's west side, K27, and it's trees are probably superb though, as they have more pitch and length then Belleayre and Windham. It's supposedly super packed there. 45 minutes on quad, and many chairs didn't have power including the west side for half the day.

The truth is that the catskill ski areas got around 4-5' form Thursday's storm. Were there drifts higher/deeper ,yes. I hit a drift on Utsy @ Bellearye that was chest deep.
 Anything more than that is just one upminship between the three idiots.They now report total snow in 48 hours or what ever makes it look better.
Friday morning was the most snow I've ever seen on the hill at one time ever.
Just wet enough to $uck.  80 under foot was worthless. But still just amazing for east coast skiing.
I heard that Rt.214 was closed on Friday due to an avy.

"Just wet enough" is an understatement. Did you bring bagels for that cream cheese?! I can't imagine what hunter looked like by the the end of the day today. I bet the big soft moguls were great.

Plenty of big soft moguls at plattekill today...and still no lines.
post #115 of 116
I'm going to hunter tomorrow and I'm wondering what they will do. Groom or not groom?

It has to be torn up pretty good from the weekend.
post #116 of 116
