John... good, good news as well. Despite the Weather Channel being rather vague about it, weather.gov, the NWS site is really indicating some more flake this weekend.

Report for Davis:
Thursday night. Partly cloudy. A chance of snow late. Lows in the mid 20s. Chance of snow 30 percent.
Canaan: Snow... cold.

Friday. Mostly cloudy with a chance of snow in the morning. Then rain likely in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s. Chance of precipitation 60 percent.
Canaan: Snow, snow and/or sleet afternoon back to snow, cold enough to make snow.

Friday night. Snow likely. Lows in the upper 20s. Chance of snow 60 percent.
Canaan: Snow, cold.

Saturday. Mostly cloudy with a chance of snow showers. Highs in the upper 30s. Chance of snow 50 percent.
Canaan: More snow, maybe not so great snowmaking day-time.

Saturday night. Partly cloudy with a chance of snow showers. Lows in the upper 20s. Chance of snow 30 percent.
Canaan: Snow again, cool, not frigid.. good snowmaking weather for building bases.

Sunday. Partly sunny with a chance of snow and rain showers. Highs near 40. Chance of precipitation 30 percent.
Canaan: Snow and/or sleet, snowmaking=not so good.


Well that's just how I see it.

It's not going to be enough for you to shred Cherry Glades on your board but if all goes as planned, Timberline should be in great shape for its opening : 11 December!

anyway, I think to add to what Canaanman has said, look at the daily temps for tonight-Wed: (From NWS)

Tonight. Partly cloudy with a chance of snow showers. An inch or less of snow accumulation. Lows in the lower 20s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 30 percent.

Tuesday. Partly sunny and continued cold. Highs in the upper 20s. Northwest winds around 10 mph.

Tuesday night. Partly cloudy. Lows in the mid teens. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.

Wednesday. Partly sunny. Highs in the lower 30s. West winds 5 to 10 mph.


Let's keep our fingers cross that the cold spurt is here to stay.

Might be enough for riding down a driveway up near the Sods in the gated community... depends on drift depth and such.

Yeah, I know those people were dumb to try to build up there, and created a patch that might forever be an eyesore, but they made a good trail as well.

Are you talking about the access road or one of the actual house driveways? Is it up near the water tower?
