    MLK weekend snow?

    and if its like that at Magic than Bromley/Stratton would be even better off given the elevation difference up there

    MLK weekend snow?

    Is that actually true (I don't mean to challenge the swami here) but this shows pretty nice snow depth in SVT....Mt Snow may be too far south to have much natural base but Bromley/Stratton/Magic on north should be just fine Bromley snow report shows all their glades open today as an example

    MLK weekend snow?

    Regarding icing, this is an interesting table that I found....from what I can see with the wind seems most of SNE that gets the ice would fall in the 1-2 Index

    Not testing....removing the connection to reset the computer. The battery on my truck was perfectly fine...it was just all scrambled and throwing all these false codes.
  9. Such a great place. 500 acres of tree skiing. Hardly anything on map. Cheap tickets. Everyone super friendly. Unbelievable conditions Ski on. Skis way bigger than trail map would suggest. A real gem that I'd encourage everyone to get to when they are fully open Was with my kids so only explored as much as my older son (age 5) ability allowed us. Can't wait for return trip Sunday 3/3 with @SkiBearded for some poking around! Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Saturday 1/12. Middlebury College Snow Bowl

    I asked at the ticket window when they planned to have the Bailey Falls lift running (it has yet to open this season) and was told "maybe next wknd" My understanding is that there is no snowmaking over there. From what I experienced there is plenty of snow however. Middlebury would be a great way to avoid crowds over this upcoming holiday wknd.

    Superbowl Prediction

    It will be interesting to see how crowded the mtns are this coming Sunday...game is at 6:40 so folks should not use that as an excuse not to go. It is MLK wknd and the potential for a lot of snow on Sat night/Sunday....could be extremely busy---especially first thing

    Yeti may be on to something on the battery idea. My Tundra was running really rough this Fall sporadically..it would drive fine and then all of a sudden had trouble shifting, the dash lights all lit up, 4x4 started flashing, 4 low flashing despite me being in 2wd. I un hooked both battery cables, & cleaned the terminals. They were pretty gunked up with corrosion and haven't had an issue since. The problem immediately went away once the computer "re-learned" what it was like to have a strong connection.

    Saturday 1/12. Middlebury College Snow Bowl

    Few more pics. My only other day there was a few yrs ago and it was overcast and horrid conditions. Didn't get a good sense of the MTN. Yesterday showed me it's really a gorgeous hill and so unpretentious. Such a great spot to hit when other mtns are busy and the snow is good. Also,they now sell beer (in cans) in the lodge. Previously it was an alcohol free zone being part of the college campus Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Roll Call - Jan 11-13, 2019

    Saturday 1/12 Middlebury/Pico or Magic (still game time call)
  16. Firm and fast was the story of our opening night. Decent course setup. Lighting is at least improved at CM this yr. Was a real safety issue in spots last season. Our NMS team finished 3rd on the night, just out of 2nd but we were missing a couple guys and we'll all improve as we get re acclimated to gate racing. Great to see everyone on the team and share some beers afterwards! Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Crotched ARL. 1/9

    Crotched ARL. 1/9

    They haven't had shop sponsorship in 2 seasons...last yr they used their own shop for giveaways and guessing this yr is more of the same. You would think they could get a local shop to throw some stuff their way for ARL...between both nights probably 130 ish people. Will be interested to see the #'s for tonight. Wednesday seemed slightly busier than last yr at least.

    Crotched ARL. 1/9

    The swag seemed weak...did anyone pay attention to what the 1st half dozen or so ppl were getting?

    1/7 - 1/9 - Storm

    I'll be watching snow totals and lift/trail openings carefully this week as I decide between Magic, Pico, and Middlebury for Saturday.

    NMS Spring Gathering 2019

    Yes, last yr was Saturday 4/19

    NMS Spring Gathering 2019

    Should we add Sat 4/20 to the list of possible options? Realizing it is Easter wknd but a couple things to point out. Not sure how many folks actively celebrate Easter (I don't FWIW) and we are talking about Saturday skiing, not Sunday. Might be interesting to at least see how the votes shake out.

    NMS Spring Gathering 2019

    I'm likely out for 4/27 because I'll be working on getting the boat ready for the season. Ideally the inferno ends early and we meet up in C Lot afterwards! Definitely not ideal timing for me this yr Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
