Re: Who is playing hooky Thursday?

I'm not as optimistic. Hudson Valley Weather says storm is tracking east and has downgraded everything to the west. Also not seeing many flakes on Catskills' webcams (coming down here pretty hard here in Woodstock though).

Edit: NWS is still very bullish on 12"+. Feeling cautiously hopeful again.

For all you max passers out there why not Pico?

I'm not on the max pass but might head south (not as likely) or east. Was thinking pico but maybe I'll put magic on the list.

Why not Killington, really? Plenty of coverage, dominating lift system, trees, steeps, mellow trails, good base, good bars...

South would be good, too. Belleayre or Platty would be fine choices. I think Magic will be surprisingly crowded (I've heard from lots of people who have been waiting years to ski it, and think now is the time). Stratton is on the Max Pass and has good upper mountain trails.

Gore, Windham, Wachusset are all on the MAX pass too.

Really, it's tough to go wrong. Probably best to pick a mountain that you know well & have some go-to spots that you know will have pow. Now might not be the time for exploration. Plenty of time for that this weekend and later in March.

For me pico vs. kton comes down to cost, crowds and closer. I can get a pico pass for $47. I don't know either place as well as I'd like but pico is smaller and more manageable (less choices means less traversing) and is hardly ever crowded. It looks like its going to snow most of the day tomorrow too which is why I'd go east vs. south. I'm locked into Gore for the next two weekends until NYSEF is done then I may spring for the 199 kton pass.

Too bad you can't buy ikon now and use it this spring. I'd buy one today.

It looks like the Catskills are getting a bit skunked with this storm. I left Belleayre at 4:30 and they had about 4" of fresh from the storm on top of the 2-3" this morning. I live east of there and it hasn't been snowing here for awhile now and radar shows it's done at Belleayre.

That said, the skiing was great today.

Interesting to see what Riley did to our standards.  I think we'll take it.

Anybody dropping cars down in Pine Hill?

True, especially when it was 60+ and looking very dismal 2 weeks ago!

Just didn’t get the 18-24” they were talking about.

Some of my friends skied down to pine hill Monday or Tuesday. Said it got very heavy when they got down there. This new snow on top should help.
