NY Ski Blog Weather Page

It was nice to see the NYSB Weather Page get some use this year.  

Much of what is there came from suggestions from readers. We'd like feedback on it.

If you have ideas about how to improve the page - links, maps, whatever - post them here. Thanks.

Weather Page is now updated to include winter maps: snowfall (regional and northeast) plus storm tracks.

Question:

Thinking about adding these two images to the weather page:

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/nerfc/graphics/snowmaps/html/snow_depth.html

http://www.erh.noaa.gov/nerfc/graphics/snowmaps/html/daily_snowfall.html

Anyone every use them?

While I think they are cool, they seem to be updated hours after snow has fallen, like the next day.

Web Cams and Ski Conditions now on Weather Page

In the past, when the season got going, we put our list of webcams and the mountain conditions reports on the NYSB homepage.  

In the off season, I've filled those homepage spots with the recent forum topics and NY Ski Magazine Links...


I'm thinking of keeping those spots as they are (on the homepage) and put Web Cams and Ski Reports on the Weather Page.


While that spot isn't as prominent, it's kinda where all the decision making data is kept.  Do you use webcams and ski reports? Will you use them there? Input welcome.

Great added feature Harv.

Might want to consider the Smugglers Notch webcams, I belive they have 3 active ones.

And the Mad River Glen webcam:  looks like they added a second one this year.

Feel free to add a link to the live Gore webcam.

Hey Harv,

Not that there's any snow to see right now, but could you link the Igerna Hermitcam to
http://www.frontiernet.net/~kfish/iwc.htm

The other is a static view that doesn't always get updated.

Thanks!!

Harv, Think you can get WF to try placing web cams on the mountain that actually show some of the terrain instead of the mid lodge picnic tables? At least they could reposition it so you could see up Mountain Run and Wildy. Need another at the top of Little WF looking up toward the summit also. Guess that would be a little to much to ask though.

I spent all last winter looking at those Whiteface picnic tables.

The best was one warm day last March when a bunch of beer drinking guys were sitting there trying to pick up some women skiers who were dressed very lightly.  I am not making this up.
