Rain Causes Crossed Fingers
Cross your fingers and hope that the ski areas, especially those with lots of snow, survive the heavy rains and can get back in shape for this coming weekend. I just looked at the Seven Springs web cams and things do not look too bad...but wait until the rain laden snow freezes!
I can hardly (not) wait.
Ah, just one more up/down in the continuing saga that is the 07/08 season. I've become numb to it at this point. If we get a blizzard with real snow that sticks around more than 48 hours, somebody will need to slap me awake.
I can tell you that at the Shoe, there was substantial melting. However, there was enough of a base to keep just about everything open. And it cooled substantially, so the groomers went to work and conditions were excellent today.
What I wouldn't give for a good old fashion 3" to 6" of real snow to coat what's going to be frozen granular, corn, sugar, hardpack, and crud that we've been sking all winter.
Supposedly we're getting some snow today at the Shoe. Hope it is for real, not just "marketing" snow. About to hit the trails with my family... See you in the PM
Snowing like the dickens out there with heavy wind at 4:30 PM. About a quarter inch on the ground and piling up...
