    I'm on the fence. I am feeling sick-ish so I'm probably going to skip this weekend unless an overnight miracle cures me.

    conditions

    Guys and gals - friends and I are thinking of making the drive up from PA next week (leave late wednesday/shift driving/board thursday/shift drive home thursday). To be blunt, is it worth it? How have your conditions been up there? In PA we've had horrible thaw/freeze cycles going on and it's basically crap. It looks like there's some rain slated for this week up in southern VT and maybe some temps above freezing - what do you think? Would love to get up there this winter, but I feel like mother nature is taking a vacation.

    Thanks

    The snow is absolutely stellar, yesterday snow quality rivaled the best I have ridden. The mountain is 98% open (only two carving trails missing).
    today was day 30 for me and every trail was groomed to perfection and snow was amazing.

    Now the weather, yeh it is freezing rain today and tomorrow will be awful. But it will get cold on Tuesday night and snow in the forecast for the next four days after that. Stratton is the king of recovery, it could absolutely suck one day and amazing two days later. As long as there is no major long term down turn in the weather it will be worth it. Next Thursday is a long way off, we could get 3 feet of snow between now and then. Check back on Sunday.
    Yuck!!!!

    I'm like 99% in, feeling pretty well this morning. By tomorrow I ought to have sent this cold packing entirely.

    Ben, every forecast I've looked at shows snow all week. Snowed 3" yesterday. Got a little more during the day today. The hill is in really good shape. PM me tomorrow night, and I'll let you know what its doing.

    Sorry I missed you, never saw a purple jacket. But what a blast this morning was! Until I was thoroughly soaked, but at least it was warm.

    Hoping to get there Friday around 9 and ride for a while before joining some friends on skis. Probably just do laps off the 6-pack unless the snow's really great higher up the hill.

    Thumbs up

    Rode for an hour, or so, couldn't buy a turn yesterday. Back out today, and the bottom was appallingly bad. Top, however, was freakin' brilliant!! You should have a really good day on Friday.

    Shaggy and Steph,
    I think I have ridden with you a few years ago. I was riding a K2 fatbob and made a few runs with you guys. I rode Stratton 2 years ago on my Ride Timeless and talked to someone at the starting gate. I may be confusing people but I think it was one of you or the few people that I rode with up there at Stratton. Any way I will be riding Thursday and Friday of the ECES with a small group of guys. I will probably be the only softboot rider there. I will be on a Blue Status board and hope to make some turns with you.

    Mark, we did ride together a few years back. It was me that worked at the gate. Glad to hear you are coming to ECES for a couple of days. We'll see you then!
