looks like our winter might take a holiday. long range does not look encouraging. it's been a great run, so no long faces..
that said, anyone going out west might be in luck..they're back in the game..
I'm going with the Hinterlandian groundhog, Wiarton Willie. Sources on the inside say that it was impossible to find the albino rodent in the snowstorm on the official day, so they postponed the prognostication until the next day. Shouldn't count, in my books.
I am not looking that far ahead, but the MRF still is showing cold air and a few clippers through next weekend. It is showing a good warm up at that point but it is still a long way off and conditions right now are fantastic. The snow that fell Monday night at Gore, wasn't a whole lot but it was of a great consistency to cover exposed base in the woods. 46er looks skiable! So without any above freezing temps for the next week and a half, let's enjoy winter here and now and ignore those doomsday prognosticating rodents, calling for an early spring.
I am going to resist jumping on the bandwagon just yet...From what I see GFS/MRF Flirting with 40 at Gore next Thursday and Friday but cooler and windy for the weekend of the 19th. We can't loose that great snowpack in the woods before Jason gets to ski Gore
