    The 2018-2019 Ski Season Thread

    I appreciate all the advice. I think I'm going to demo out skis between 95 and 105 underfoot, and see what feels best.

    The 2018-2019 Ski Season Thread

    Looking to pick up some new skis this fall. My current skis are basically GS skis (185's (115-68-99) which are fine for anything less than say 6" of snow, but now that I'm getting in about 40 days/year, and the ability to hit most powder days I'm looking for something wider. So do I get something wide like a Blizzard Rustler (142-114-132) just for powder days, or something like a Bonafide / Enforcer as an everyday ski?

    Thanks. Pretty remote area and even though it's only about 1.5 miles west of 93/Rt 3. There's no way of getting there other than what appears to be a path beneath power lines and I'm guessing that would require permission from the power company.

    Any info and/or coordinates of where it touched down?

    Won't be extreme for most NE'ers, but I'll be staying at the Greenleaf hut Friday night @4200'. Sustained winds forecast in the 40's, gusts in the 60's maybe more with that cabins exposure.

    The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    I noticed that yesterday in his first post (Backcountry Touring in the Northeast), that right ski popped off very early, but Alex also said he was already done by that point and I kinda agree. He looked pretty off balance when that right ski caught that snow snake (for lack of a better term). He was pretty lucky he didn't faceplant those rocks up top and was able to walk away. I'll be up on Friday with a few friends and my son. I'm planning on doing a run or two in the lower bowl and if the weather is ok, hike up into the snowfields and ski the right gully. Anything over a 30 degree pitch I call a "no fall" zone because that's where you start to pick up speed, but I think the right gully is probably the flattest route down.

    NNE Winter Thread

    I had been following Emerson Aviation's posts throughout the day but hadn't noticed they made the call at 5:40 p.m yesterday afternoon.

    Winnipesaukee ice-out is likely tomorrow.

    I would rate this season slightly better, but let me qualify. Comparatively NH did better than VT when compared to last year. End December was brutally cold and January thaw sucked, but it's been great since then! It's almost hard to believe it's late April when you look at photos from above say 2000'

    Damn! That's one hell of a view. Is that from the shore?
  11. Non-paved surfaces covered in Lowell as well. 33.8/32. Ground still patchy snow up north with bare ground up to 6" in the back yard. Pretty cold March/April. I wonder when ice-out is this year on Winni? May 1st is a possibility.
  12. Rain changed back to snow this morning. 34.9/34. Briefly hit 41.1 last night, but it's been in the upper 20's low 30's since Saturday. correction 34.8/33
  13. Winds still ripping, temp holding steady at 32.9. Still a mix of sleet/rain, but it's accumulating.
  14. Getting pounded with sleet and winds are gusting probably into the 40's but winds out of the SE don't show up on my Davis since I'm on the north side of the hill. 32.6/30. No power last hour.
  15. Lost power here in Thornton, some pretty decent wind out there. 33.6/30 with snow showers.
