    The 2018-2019 Ski Season Thread

    A+ day at Sugarbush today, never made it over to Castlerock (bootpacking/skating are both not great for my bad knees and we were having too much fun on the lift-served stuff) but the rest didn't disappoint. Tons of pow on Lixi's Twist Entering the white room on Heavens Gate - later in the afternoon when the winds picked up it was pure whiteout on the chair, couldn't see the next tower ahead of you. Nat taking a break on Paradise More Paradise (I think?) Me on Stein's Don't remember what this one was, maybe Stein's again? We lapped it because it was so good the first time. The pics from the trees are all on my friend's phone since my old iPhone hates the cold, but you can imagine what you think they'd look like and you were right. Plenty of 2-3' untracked pillows of snow in the trees all day. Back at it at SR on Saturday but everywhere should still be incredible. Go go go!

    11/27 - Everything and the Kitchen Sink Obs

    Holy wow - you weren’t kidding! Solid foot and a half here at sugarbush; bumps/pow on the trails and mostly untracked in the woods. A+ day for sure. Out of storage so can’t post pics from my phone but I’ll put some in the ski thread when I’m back in Boston. Been snowing lightly here all day, hasn’t added up to much but it’s certianly keeping the stoke going!

    Hit a nice snow shower on 89 around mile 45 in NH (Grantham area). Can see the elevation gradient clearly on the highway as we were going through NH - looks a little less exciting now as we've crossed into VT but I would imagine things will perk up again as we get up into the mountains. Should be a great day at Sugarbush - get out and enjoy the snow!

    Unreal for February, forget November. Making tracks to Sugarbush tomorrow unless K somehow beats them overnight.

    Annual Cheers Gathering

    I'd support a January gtg; I'm usually traveling mid December to just after the new year and haven't been able to make one yet unfortunately (and this year will likely be no different, slim chance I could make the 14th but not likely). Would love to get to meet some of the group.

    4” ish at Killington but the wind is making it really hard to get an accurate measurement. Stoked for tomorrow!

    Eyeballing 2” in Woodstock, VT; going back and forth between smaller flakes and fluffy dendrites. Almost there!

    Lots of reports on our page, accuracy is all over the place but if you’ve got a specific area that you’re looking for it’s worth looking. 9” in New Milford is the highest I’ve seen come into us so far.

    SN on I89 near Grantham NH, kudos to the NHDOT crews who are keeping things relatively decent so far. Noticeable improvement when we crossed the border from MA to NH although MA was alright as well given the circumstances. Gonna be a pow day at Killington tomorrow!

    Accumulating quickly on all surfaces despite light rates - good sign I'd say for us city folk. Heading north shortly but rooting for a nice positive bust for you guys!

    Light snow has begun.

    Still 31 here on the hill. Guessing there's going to be a pretty sharp line between a coating and 3-4"; whether that sets up in your area, my area, or out in Brookline/Newton is still up for debate I think.

    Salting truck just came down my street so they're out in the city now, guess they saw what happened in NYC and don't want to meet a similar fate. I'm heading north to Killington in about an hour, expecting a long slow ride but hoping that NH/VT have 93/89 relatively okay and that we're able to stay on the leading edge of the system. 31/24.

    Yeah. I was more referring to what I called them out on this morning, but they were very conservative to start with (which is generally how they work - they're either super conservative or super bullish depending on who is on the desk).
