  1. It’s snowing so nicely here. Too bad it has to turn to rain
  2. Snowing fluffy golfball size pillows lol after what looked like sand. Temp down to 23
  3. Snowing here too at -21. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that
  4. There is definitely something surreal about this cold. It’s nowhere near my record low of -34, but that was with radiation cooling and dead calm wind. This wind makes it feel very different, it feels like a station at the South Pole lol
  5. Never been dead before but I imagine that’s what death feels like lol JK. Only been out briefly, it just hurts, especially in the lungs. And the wood deck sounds like it’s about to shatter into crystals when you walk on it
  6. Amazing conditions the past few days. Skiing Wildcat today, it’s sooo nice
  7. Snowing pretty well, approaching 1”
  8. My lowest was -35 if I remember correctly. Lots of guests with dead batteries. I don’t need that again, ever.
  9. 13” of pure cement here. I freaked out earlier when I saw my dog walk by in the window lol… she’s not that tall that you can usually see her but she can walk on the snow without sinking at all. It took me a minute
  10. Forecast has -24F for a low on Friday. F@@k
  11. Haha yes i suppose. Not unusual to see big differences in upslope or downsloping situations, but the change in temperature profiles was a bit unexpected for this. But could just be that I haven’t really been following this system, I thought it was more of a basic clipper
  12. Just took my kid to a party. The weather around here is crazy. 30 and moderate to sometime heavy snow here. 36 and mixed precip/rain in Twin Mountain, 5 miles away. 28 and zero precipitation in Whitefield!
  13. Good start to this round of snkw
  14. Not the same here! Today I skied both Bretton Woods and Attitash. The difference was stark. Bretton Woods skied pretty well. Packed but grippy. Glades were firm but doable with a fluffy layer on top. Attitash was an ice rink. All you could hear was the hideous scraping sound; I can’t understand why they couldn’t groom it a bit better. Also surprised by how much of the terrain was still closed in spite of a decent base, and the stupidest thing in my opinion… they’ve been bragging about replacing the a/b chair… but the replacement is a non-detachable, crawl up the mountain at make you wanna jump off the chair speed lift. Why oh why not spend the extra money on a detachable if you’re replacing a lift in 2023??? Don’t get it. But what do I know, I don’t manage ski resorts (granted, neither does the person who managed that ski resort till last year lol). I was just disappointed- and reminded of how amazingly consistently good the conditions are at Bretton Woods vs other area resorts
  15. Yeah that was one of the reasons I chose Bretton Woods over Bartlett/Jackson. I used to stare at the wall of clouds/snow across the valley while we were sunny or get a few stray flurries. I lost on snow retention but I like the persistent, frequent snow.
  16. Took a while to get going after the lull following the squalls but snowing very nicely tonight
  17. Heavy heavy squalls moving through. Can’t see in front of my window
  18. And no longer light snow - it's now cat paws
  19. Temp has climbed to 33, but it's switched to light snow. It figures - drizzles below freezing, snows above freezing.
  20. Didn’t really get to measure; resort says 5” and they’re usually pretty accurate with what I measure, but it was wind blown and squished down by this morning so hard to tell. My stake went from 14” to 22” to 12” overnight lol
  21. Now the wind is completely gone. Bizarre
  22. No idea how much we got big it’s pounding. And my deck posts now look like ice cream cones
  23. The wind is crazy here too. Feels like an evening at the Mt Washington observatory lol
