  1. NNE Winter Thread

    Hit Jay Peak Today. What was forecasted to be an iffy day weatherwise turned out partly sunny towards the end of the day. No rain while lifts were running. It’s amazing how the valley only a few miles away had bare ground, but the “glacier” from Jay literally started at the slope side of the Stateside Hotel. Tram was closed, but still quite a bit of trails open from the Jet triple and Bonaventure Quad running. Lots of snow on the hill and a bunch of glades still open and good coverage. Tomorrow might not be so great. I’ll post some pics if I can figure out how, lol.
  2. NNE Winter Thread

    Copied this from the Ski Thread. Hey guys, was wondering if you had any advice. First off, went skiing two weekends ago at Plattekill NY and conditions were exellent. Last weekend I skied Magic on Saturday and Okemo on Sunday.. and conditions were even better! Now I'm spoiled rotten... Now for this weekend.. I'd like to hit Killington, or even Plattekill or Belleayre.. but my concern is that though they all got 6++ feet within the last few weeks, the most recent snow would be 9 days old. Do you think the snow would be somewhat skied off at say Killington? Another option is .. was thinking of hitting Blue Mtn in PA (near Allentown). The got 10" from yesterdays nor'easter, but more importantly, they have a low elevation, and temps are expected to be in the low 40s both saturday and Sunday.. so should be nice spring skiing there and not ice issues... What's better, 9 day old snow/packed powder., or Blue Bird Spring Skiing? Thanks in advance. -Jason

  4. I'm in Melville, Rt110 between Northern State and LIE. I agree with you 100%!
  5. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Heading up to Plattekill tomorrow. If you stay at one of their lodging partners and pay full price for the Saturday liift ticket ($65), they throw in a voucher to ski Sunday for free. Skiing 2 days on a weekend for that price is hard to beat! Platty ended up with 10-14 from yesterday on top of the 24-36 from nor'easter #1. Basically 50 inches in a week (plus 4 inches incoming next 48 hrs). I was contemplating heading either Mt Snow or Magic, but Magic's black chair is under repair for the weekend (lift lines could be an issue) and thought since platty finally has the natural snow they desperately need, I should hit it now while it's prime. I could always hit Mt snow later in the season.. This should be quite a ski weekend. Everyone enjoy it! We can swap war stories on how it went! -Jason
  6. Call me crazy, but I saw about 3 flashes ( of what appears to be lightning?) in the sky at about 3:35AM in Mellville, LI. (Extreme western suffolk). I looked out the window, and saw the last flash.. it's only snowing light to moderate and I did not hear any thunder. Is this type of convection possible so early in the storm? car tops and grass/trees have half a nice coating.

    Very nice right up. You have almost all of Suffolk County LI in the 6-12! I love your map brother. Hoping we all get nailed! -Jason
  8. Wave 2, 1/7-8/17 Discussion/OBS

    Glad you got a good laugh! What prompted my question was the water vapor loop posted a few minutes prior. To my untrained eye it looked like the trough was about to go negative. I could be totally wrong though.

    Can you guys tell if this thing going Negative tilt on us or no?

    ;Do you think besides air temperature, other factors can play into this.. Such as SSTs or would SSTs already be factored into the air temperature averages? For example, for the October 30th 2011 event, the entire immediate North Shore of LI had no snow on the ground due to it's proximity to the relatively warm LI sound, do those same locales have a higher air temperature average in October than places say 5-10 miles removed from the water? For some reason, I feel the Oct 30th event was so very special because even a 2.9 inch snowfall for KNYC a month later on Nov 30th would still be quite a rare event.. Thanks Bluewave, I really enjoy reading your very informative posts! -Jason

    u.I agree with your comparisons, but I think It's slightly easier to snow on April 1st vs Nov 30th.. I can only recall 2 November snowstorms in my life. One was on Thanksgiving in the late 1980s and the other was a week after hurricane Sandy.. I think during the same timeframe we've had maybe half a dozen April snows.. And I also feel March has slightly better odds than December.. I can remember so many warm Decembers or at the very least kiss the first half goodbye because of balmy weather..with March, I always felt like we had hope for snow for the first half.. When we had that blizzard on Dec 5th 2003 or 2004.. It really stood out.. My Dad said back in the "old days" December used to be cold.. Perhaps there has been a shift or a delay in the onset of winter weather in December over the last 30 ..40+ years.. Jason
