Was really looking forward to Monday at Loon and Tuesday at Attitash. Keeping an eye on the weather but am not holding out music hope for Monday. How much time do you think Loon will need to recover? Boilerplate is not fun!

Right now Saturday’s high in Lincoln is 49 and Sunday is 50, on top of that is the rain. Then the low Sunday night is 18.. They are great at recovering, but I can’t imagine anyone is that good by Monday.

I thought about going out for an hour or two before any crowds might show up. I decided to do stuff around the house instead since I have the building to myself this weekend. Mother Nature certainly is depressing!

Home too. Got on the wood now uncoverings and stew in the Crock-pot for supper. I'm off to the office after some lunch to try and get caught up and maybe, just maybe ahead of Monday....Tomorrow snow, so I'll stay home and clean....watch football or whatever. Really should work on the baby sweater for a friends new Grandson....since he'll be month old soon....

We skied Mohawk this morning. Conditions were firm slush trending toward mashed potatoes by 10. It was 65 degrees when we got home at 11. Should be absolute boiler plate by this time on Monday.
:cry: Similar here, apparently. I skipped today and went for a walk instead. I usually wander onto the Okemo nordic trails.... they were under water. At least it was interesting lookin at the really old stones at the local cemetery. The history of Ludlow is buried there. Fascinating!

Agreed! Tomorrow afternoon should be day 2 of spring skiing in January and then winter temps come slamming back in. I am going to give Monday's likely bullet proof conditions a whirl at Sunday River since I will still be up here.

Today was very sad for the base levels, but the conditions were great fun especially late morning and on. I don't know about elsewhere, but Sunday River had a serious temperature inversion today and that took some getting used to! Each run had its own conditions, and even a single run was so variable depending on what elevation you were on the trail. Top of the mountain was warm, mid was chilly and base was warm again - you could feel the temp variations while traveling down the run. A first for me!

I think I need to sharpen my edges for Tuesday. Going to give Monday a miss, unless I change my mind.

The inversions were cool, not used to feeling such stark temperature differences so close together during a run or riding up the lift!
We were feeling these in our back yard! At least 10-degree differences in spots just a few steps apart. So odd!

Looks like we missed out on the freezing rain. It rain ed, but That's that is frozen to the trees. So no power outages. Now for 10cm of snow.
