  1. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Made me do a quick check of MRG, Cannon, Loon, Sugarloaf and Wildcat webcams. All looking pretty rough. I didn't see any bare spots on the Sugarloaf cam which was kind of surprising because folks up there have been complaining about lack of snow making this season. Suspect only snowmaking trails will be able to be opened tomorrow. To get folks on the single chair tomorrow, MRG will have to shovel some snow which is a shame because they have had a really good early season. Get some cold temps, lock it up and we'll be skiing it in April! LOL, WaWa looked to be in best shape!

    Although I have nothing meaningful to contribute relative to weather forecasting discussions, I'd be happy to join - if in town on the date - if the group needs #s for group pricing.

    More like March-April!! I have opportunity to go up there next weekend (20th) - and need to decide this weekend so I'll probably be asking the same question. Favorite mountain when the wind isn't howling and it isn't well below zero...
  4. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Skiing at Cranmore today, sunshine, no wind, comfortable temps with face mask on and great views of Presidentials. Good coverage (wind buffeted) in woods with hard packed groomers...not bad at all.

    Not that much swinging but was on the Sublette chair at JH a few years back and got caught above the the cliff band for an extended period in high winds, we were swinging probably 60-70 degrees. We were one of the last chairs loaded and the winds were howling...it was pretty disconcerting. My then- HS-aged son was not a happy camper. We just hung on very, very tightly!
  6. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    went out about 2PM to shovel (Concord) and unscientifically measured 8 1/2" in my driveway but it's been snowing hard here since then. Someone in Concord reported 15" - I was dubious but your 17" would support.
  7. Jan 4-6 Coastal Bomb

    Anywhere along Atlantic Ave or Nantasket Blvd. In Hull. If you can get to end of Forest Ave in Cohasset to Black Rock Beach that will be an impressive scene but parking there is problematic.
  8. Winter model mehhem or mayhem nature will decide

    Walden has about 2" of ice according to some guys I asked with an auger. Figure I'll be skating there by Sunday. It's a hoot to skate on big ponds and lakes. Maybe 10 years ago, Winnipesaukee iced up with minimum snow and had great skating all along the shore and bays...I regret not taking the opportunity to go up and skate.
  9. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    I've skied in really, really cold weather at Wildcat and it never stopped them from opening. I think at this point with the sister area and interchangeable ticket right down the street, their attitude is keep everyone off the mountain and send them down to the Attitash.

    Second day out this season at Great Brook. They could use another 6" of snow but with cold, they will be fine. The parking lot was jammed full. It is amazing how much pent-up demand there is for getting outside in the winter - lots of families and novice skiers. Spent most of my time on the classic skis but skated for last 30 minutes.
  11. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

    Still 32 here in concord and Hanson...2 miles east.
  12. Dec 22-23 Snow/Ice Observations

  13. NNE Winter Thread

    Leaving the AMC, OJC has a good elevation rise up to the auto road. Done that on XC skis before. The Auto Road gets groomed later in season so you can ski down although I'm not really sure where Great Glen trails (commercial) starts.
  14. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    The Rosebrook chairlift was open along with the Bethleham Quad but there was a limited amount of terrain open off of it. They were blowing lots of snow over at West Mountain and from staff comments they will open lots of terrain shortly. It snowed hard all day and and was near white out on my last run of the day around 3:30.
  15. The 2017-18 Ski Season Thread

    Been skiing all day at Bretton Woods where it has been snowing all day. Guestimating storm total of 14-18" - wish the terrain was a little steeper but basically skiing all ungroomed - mid shin to almost knee. Nice way to start season.
