Re: Hickory Ski Center Conditions

We (me & my 6-yr-old son, Daniel) skied Hickory Sunday afternoon and had a great time.  The steep stuff up top could use another round of snow but is certainly skiable - pretty similar to the condition of many of the glades at Gore right now.  The lower mountain is in great shape and we found great conditions on the trails, powder on the edges, and even some untracked lines in the woods.  The next storm should set the mountain up in great shape for the coming weekend and Telefest the weekend after.

Re: Hickory Ski Center Conditions

Hickory got the goods too. The report I got said two feet:



Keep Hickory in mind for Saturday. And any warm day if you like epic corn bumps.

Re: Hickory Ski Center Conditions

Harv-

Let me see if I can pencil that into my schedule.  Oh darn, I have a previous engagement this Saturday, I'm supposed to be training... @ Hickory.  Hmm... maybe we can do a multi-discipline, on-any-gear all day clinic!  Course Description sumthin' like "Go fast, take chances". Heck, with all this pow-pow you don't want to get out of the fall-line. Just don't bark up the wrong tree, and don't forget to Hydrate and wait, there's more; bring plenty of carbs and beverages for the mandatory de-briefing after the ride up/slide down session to refuel.

Should be very interesting to see & ski/ride with who can make it, if they choose to do so.

As a Luminary once said "Think you're an expert?  Ski Hickory, find out."  And as JP is apt to say, "Leave home now! Get to the Mountains."  Sound advice.  

Just saying.  

All the best .

Re: Hickory Ski Center Conditions

I left Gore at noon today and it was still below freezing in W'Burg.  I think a good portion will fall as snow and the QPF bullseye seems to be south of the area...more like Albanyish.  There is a lot of snow up there!  This is March and the weather rollercoaster season.  Although I can't be there, I have a feeling tomorrow morning will be a good time to be at Gore or Whiteface.

Puking snow in Queensbury at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, March 10.  We have about 5 inches so far.  As I drove south it switched to sleet around Saratoga.  Hope it stays south.

Re: Hickory Ski Center Conditions

The forecast is for sun and mid 40's both days this weekend.  It could make for an awesome corn fest at Hickory.  The overnight temps Friday night are forecast to be 27, which isn't too bad, and will make for some nice freeze thaw for the  corn harvest.  I'm shooting to be at Hickory on Saturday.

WOW!  Just visiting some old posts.  I was there the day Jason made those first tracks!  We were all pretty excited at the prospect of finally skiing the mountain.  I can't wait for this season to get going.
