Not too shabby considering it was another month before they were open this time last year.
Now, this report is not 100% reliable, as the source wants me to work this weekend, but this is probably not subject to the traditional snow report multiplier...
Besides, NO WHINING. It is the 5th of December and there is real snow on the ground, its been cold for almost a week, and the backside of Liberty will be open.
Every ski resort in the country takes a "half glass full" approach rather than a "half glass empty" approach. I've been keeping a close eye on resorts in the Mid-Atlantic for some time now, and I haven't seen any resort dishonest in their reporting. Resorts around here want nothing more than to turn each visitor into a repeat visitor, and that is not easily achieved by misrepresenting conditions.
Yes, you have to calibrate local ski reports for the types of conditions that are local to this area. This isn't Colorado. Packed powder in the Mid-Atlantic is rarely going to be as nice as packed powder out west and you have to set your expectations accordingly.
I think one thing we can all agree on is that conditions right now are extraordinary for December, or any time of the season for that matter.
All snow reports are lies. No question. "All hail Snowtime".. well there is always risk in making snow early, but I don't think any worship of Liberty/Roundtop/Whitetail management is called for...
I am just a bit giddy...
Just like another activity, some skiing is better than none, and even bad skiing can come in real handy...
Thanks ULLR!!!! Think Snow!!!!! I'm going today!!!!!!
Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!! I love winter!!!!!
Sorry, just a little excited.
