Re: Gore Conditions

Sitting home this crappy weather Saturday, still relishing the fun skiing last weekend at Gore!!
Want to spend special time with your children, teach them to ski or snowboard. The reward will be endless!

Re: Gore Conditions

Did anyone ski yesterday?  Trying to get a feel for what the conditions will be like today.

Re: Gore Conditions

I'm home already today.  Fast and Firm racer friendly.  They are blowing the length of Showcase so that was great.  The second and next to last guns were wet.  May Tuesday/Wednesday be the recovery we need.  The base in the woods is sound.

For all of you guys in regards to frozen pipes, what sort of piping do you have in your camps? If you have cross-linked Polyethylene, (PEX) it can freeze and be fine. PEX-A that is. PEX-B and C, not so much, but still much more resilient than copper, or galv. Most plumbers don't use PEX-B anyway, unless you have a cheap cowboy plumber trying to save a buck.  With PEX-A,  It's ability to expand and retract is actually what makes the system work as you have to physically expand the pipe to put the fittings together. If you have a PEX-A plumbing system, it can freeze and thaw all day and go unaffected. Thawing the system out is a pain regardless.

Someday I'll have a camp with a frost-wall foundation, and all internal, and below frost line plumbing.

Pipe burst at our camp.  No heat.  Could not occupy, we missed the weekend.  Tragic.
I pretty much know that if it gets below maybe -10 that our pipes will freeze.  We drain them but the short section below the drain and above the frost line, even with heat tape seems to jam up.  For some reason it doesn't burst. Yet. Knock wood.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

Re: Gore Conditions

Re: Gore Conditions

Gore reporting 8 inches. Now over 100 for the season:

Re: Gore Conditions

Looking back at the historical totals, with what's in the near term forecast and with March still hanging out there with the possibility of a Nor'easter or two I would say there is a good chance the mountain could hit 150" this year.

I was high with 12-15 inches :( really poor snow growth was to blame.  The 8 inches of snow / sleet most likely has 1 inch of liquid in it, if not more.  Its good for the base....now just need some fluff on top
