This is the forcast from Accuweather for October 18th for Davis WV. I know it's almost two weeks out, but it gives some faint glimmer of hope. \:\)

YOU can FORGET about ANY snow THIS year! The green house gasses combined with the EXTENSIVE logging at Blue Knob has made this ski season HOPELESS! Global Warming will keep THE mid atlantic in a El Nino fed jet stream and cause NO precipitation for the ENTIRE year.


Sorry Guy's, w/ MM gone someone HAS to pick up THE slack.............

LOLOLOL.

Ah heck, I'll just be myself and say GW is just a figment of all of our imaginations and I'll still continue to look for a 2004+ F150 to drive around. \:\)

No seriously, I am looking for an F150. \:\)

Ok guys, to be totally serious, the last couple of years it has looked like the season has not gotten shorter, but rather shifted to a later timeframe (i.e not Dec through March anymore, but rather end of Jan and there is still good snow into April). Is this a trend we think will continue? If so, shold the local areas try to adjust their schedules around Mother Nature?

Thanks Ullr...after years of trying to get both Canaan Vly areas to get their act together EARLEIR..they will read this & decide not to open till X-Mas!....Urr right though...it seems to take longer for the real cold to build & settle in, & longer to fade back out. I think it has something to do with the ice cap being at record lows to start the winter & then Mama Nature trying like heck to make up for lost time once it gets back going........I'm thinking that with more open water up there, there might be more snow falling on the surrounding landmasses which would stay longer into the season which would in turn reflect the sun..radiate heat out & help keep hold of some late season cold which would still be able to reach us late in the year like last years snow a week before Memorial W-End.....Any other theories out there?

Oh, then if management is listening. how about some faster lifts, better food, lower prices and hire some really hot looking female patrollers.

Anybody want anything else??

I've been thinking the exact same thing the last few years. I drove over to Ohio today. Nearly 90* and the top is STILL off my Jeep. It's October 7th and Lake Milton was packed with boaters, skiers and tubers. Kind of surreal to see in October. I closed my pool last weekend and the water was still warm enough to swim in. I don't have much (if any) faith in the Farmer's Almanac.

Ullr,
Pretty sexist...don't you think. I mean there are many DCSkiers out there that would prefer the ski instructors be hunks of tight muscles...

Or maybe the ultimate form of no sexism states that either sex is appealing to either sex,....anything but no sex!

OMG he lives! I thought you has fallen off of the face of the earth (few posts). Hope all is well, Doubt Pam and I will get up to the Springs this year, but the whole family was there over the 4th of July, and did a little bit of biking up top. Say hey to Johnny G and the rest of the crowd. We will make it back at the beginning of 09 for our tune-up. C-Ya
