Lifts were on wind hold across ski country. In my experience, in the northeast, it's not unusual to have high winds after 2 feet of snow. If you called in sick and made the drive, you have to know you are gambling with windholds. It was surprising that NWS didn't call it. In my experience, they seem to OVER estimate winds a lot.
In addition, I think some employees had problems getting to the mountain.
With regard to the Adk Express, don't know for sure what happened. Folks who left in the early afternoon said the Express wasn't running. On the website, late in the day it was listed as running so maybe they got it going?
I also heard that Gore refunded ticket purchases today.
