Heading to Smuggs on Friday. Some new snow, with partly sunny skies, light wind, and reasonable temps. Not to mention, tons of groomed snow making for your skiing pleasure. Sound too good to be true? Well, come out and play and find out for yourselves.

Sounds like a most excellent plan Shane. Give us a report on the snow conditions. 

Tom, I was thinking it'd be fun to ski SB with you - not a bad drive for either of us - but I checked out their rates, and whoa, $93! for a full-day midweek. I'll look around for a deal.

DP, be sure to warn everyone skiing/riding with you to watch out for the teleboarder guy. He will hurt you.

Joe, I have four Sugarbush tickets that I haven't used yet and I'd be willing to sell you one if you're interested. I paid $236 so a single ticket would be $59. I will offer a one-time, friendly-family discount and let you have it for $50. [smile]

I'm going on Friday so I can let you know how it is. I've heard they've been making snow and the conditions aren't too bad, especially with this new snow. They're making more snow Thursday night when it gets cold so they must plan on keeping the place skiable for a while.

Or if you want to try Sugarbush on Friday, let me know. The only downside is that the Slide Brook chair isn't running yet so we would have to ski Lincoln Peak all day and not get over to Mt. Ellen. But they replaced the old Valley House chairlift so the lines should be reasonable on the Super Bravo chair.

Bob, the deal at Sugarbush is for Mt. Ellen; $30 Thursdays. One of the better deals around actually. I like skiing "Glen Ellen" and the old lodge is one of my favorites.

We got a good 5-6" new up here so it should be better then it was. I just drove up from Springfeild in snow pretty much from Rutland.  Feels like Winter.

So Joe I'll write it on the posterboard at the bottom of the lift.
My brothers already know I'll be sure to let my sister know.
Looks like warm weather and lots of sun in Tahoe

Mad River got a good dump. 20" easy on top. I got a great run on flat snow all the way to the bottom. So strange where did this come from? Waitsfeild town has an inch?

Might go Saturday morning. Seems like the low angle woods across the street might yield some turns. IT was 10 below this morning suppose to be around zero and its might snow more tonight. We shall See..

Moose Flats was fine yesterday. A pretty good run all the way to the River on snow which is not really ready for the public. Tons of junk everywhere. We stuck to the roads which were clear. Not a track anywhere so we got lots of great turns. My skis dont have any additional marks

2 Days and its all wrecked again. 55 degrees and pouring rain. Almost all the snow is gone again. If it was cold we would have 2 feet of new snow with this precipitation. Beginning to think Burling might be mighty thin this year.

It's discouraging to say the least. I could be happy doing other things, like canoeing, or skating, or bike riding, or hiking, but these extreme shifts from cold to warm make it tough to do anything. At least with conditions to really enjoy any of them.

Its great for messing around cutting wood. Frozen bare ground the tractor rolls around like its on cement. Great weather for hauling a saw around. Mountain bike riding is likely good again at Saxon.

My guess is we will get hit with a few storms in the next few weeks. We will get a third shot at Winter and it will be the strongest.

My Hot tub pump seized last night so it was nice being able to drain it and pull the pump on a dry sunny snow free deck this morning. It would have been a real bitch if it was normal winter.

You can say that again. Squaw Valley is one of my favorite places to ski. Wish we could be there skiing with you, Dave. Take some runs for us. Without gloating. [wink]

Well it was pretty winter like up there today. Skinned right from the parking lot. Made Burling in an hour and found a couple split boarders in there with a warm stove. Had some lunch and then headed for the big glades. Shane ripped his binding off right next to Beaver meadow. His ski was all rotten in the middle. The whole lift and binding came off. I left him to hobble out and climbed the glade with the split boarders. I got a good run and then took off down. Got to the car 10 minutes after hop a long did. Good day. ITs Winter up there not like here.

Not too shabby. I'm surprised there's even that much snow on the ground. How are the stream crossings? Thanks for the recon.

The early crossings were all covered on the way in. Several mid crossings were open. We broke trail on the way in, 3-4 new Saturday night. A bunch of hikers walked in behind us and wrecked everything post holing through. Dumb asses trashed the ski track. The pond is pretty sparse in terms of snow, lots of open water. There is only 18" on the ground at the trail junction by the lower end of the meadow. I measured 12" at the trail head on the ground. The knoll 1/3 of the way in was 14-15". Hopefully we get some snow out of the coming mid week storm. The snow pack is the most shallow I have seen this time of the year. There is skiing up there but its not like it usually is.
