    The Northeast has been REALLY warm this fall. We need some help from mother nature if they even want to be able to MAKE snow! Most places try for a Thanksgiving open (Sunday River, Killington and Sugarloaf often earlier), but it will be close this year...

    Yeah! Cool most of the summer, and now quite warm. My BF said Killington hasn't even started making snow. How can they, at 70*?

    It has been unseasonably warm here in Quebec too. For the past few days the temperature has been hovering around 20 C. Tremblant is supposed to open in exactly one month from now but it's too warm to even think about snow making.

    I imagine a lot of nervous execs and World Cup staff at Killington staring at the weather projections and sweating in the warm sun.

    My fingers are crossed that it will happen. I can't wait to get out there and get skiing again.

    It's November now. My new boat is ready to haul out. The old one is snug on her trailer. Let it snow (not in Rhode Island, I hope! We drive badly here without the benefit of snow!) soon and snow a lot!

    And it is due to be a high of 70 the next two days here. Maybe I will get some more boat stuff done ....

    @QCskier - did you see Tremblant's FB post this morning. Like Kton, they're blowing snow too!

    As for warm in RI - Itri is running the NYC marathon this weekend. I'm sure she's like it warmer than cold!

    I'd be very surprised if that happened; it's just been too too warm.

    On the Liftopia list, it projects Killington for November 11, Okemo for November 22.

    I'm not sure where these dates came from, but some (a lot) seem REALLY optimistic to me...

    Wow, I was there 2 months ago, hot and smoky! But it did make me want to come back.
