Yes, I meant you : ) !

Got it.  Gore is an up and down for me on Friday - family had elected to stay down this weekend, so I took Friday off before this storm even popped up.

Because of the storm, I am planning to leave early from Pine Hill on Friday, go up and back down to PH that day, and meet up with a friend on Saturday at Belle as previously planned.  

Instead of going straight from the flatlands in the metro area, I am going up to Pine HIll tonight because my skis and boots are there.  Then going to get up early and head to Gore.

Also, guys - if anyone is skiing Gore on Friday, I would be more than happy to meet up with anyone who is jumping into the woods.  While I am a strong and experienced skier, I don't want to jump in woods alone there because I haven't skied any glades at Gore before.  

Feel free to message/email me.

Dom, I'm no expert but I'd probably take 88 or 87. Interstate as far as you can.

When I go from Plattekill to Gore I take 30 but it's barely shorter, and in snow, god knows what you'll face.

Would appreciate others weighing in, I just don't know.

My plans are for Gore, or farther north if I can make it.
I live outside Albany. from plattekill
rt 30 to 88 is the best way, especially in snow. I have done it many times. up make up time on 88 and 90 going 75 mph.

Thanks, Brownski, Harv and Sig.

Sig - So, 30 N to 88 to 87?  

Is the issue that on 87 there are just more cars?  I am leaving at 5 (which should get me through Albany by 6:30 - I imagine there isn't commuter then - is that wrong.

Is 30 kept clear?  I am assuming 88 and 87 will be equally cleared.

Though forecasts are indicating rain at that level and time.

Thank you guys!

Yup, 3-4 inches from Saratoga Springs points east and north.  Finishing with some sleet and freezing rain.

Hopefully tomorrow the rain turns back to snow quickly.

88 dumps into 90 east then you pick back up 88 north in Albany
Going east will b where u hit traffic. Once heading north u will b fine. That is opposite of rush hour traffic

Great morning at Gore but it's all starting to ice over

Hoping for some serious snow tonight

That looks yummy. A little liquid with snow on top could be just what the doc ordered.

Here's the overnight snow, good on Gore:
