Skied at Mass. today. Best early conditions I've ever seen. DJ, Southern Comfort and Yebel Yell had pretty good coverage with a little ice here and there. Geranamo(spelling?) didn't have full coverage but the snow was good. We were there late morning and early afternoon. Not much of a crowd, skied on to lifts. Crowd was picking up when we left. Way to go Massanutten!!!

Just thought I'd bump this thread up... any updates from the 'nut?

I imagine the base is hurting with all this freaking rain we keep getting.

Base is holding up ok. Still open to the top on both rebel yell and DJ. Snow was good yesterday on DJ. Cover is thin on Geronimo, terrain park is closed until we can make some more snow. tube park is open with 5-6 lanes. FYI this weekend we are charging regular season weekday rates instead of regular season weekend rates. so come out and enjoy. We plan to start making snow on Sun as soon as temps cooperate.

I was just going to ask about the rain. Plan to ski Dec. 22-25. Hoping the cold gets there fast and the snow is fully developed on Sun.

Hey SkiMass . . . did it rain much on the mountain on Fri? I'm hoping snowmaking gets going Sun evening.

Pretty cold today, but plenty of machine snow on the slopes. The guns were on all day. Got to 32 degrees at base briefly. Back down to the 20's by 4pm.

A few icy patches at the top of Diamond Jim. But generally quiet under my skis. Rebel Yell was machine powder all over.
