    Same here in the upper Midwest. We have snow on the hills, but with no regional snow cover, the temps are not getting down to where they need to be. The ten day forecast temps keep getting revised upwards, the opposite to last year, where with great regional snow cover, the forecast temps were always being revised downwards.

    That SUCKS.

    We're going through a similar wave here in Vancouver- what little snow we have is being eroded by rain showers.

    That's one of the reasons why I dig this sport so much- the weather factor makes each sliding day unique.

    We have been the exactly the same way until this week. Got our first snow last night and will have cold temps until Saturday. Sunday will be warm again though

    Had a 2 hour snowball fight with the my kids and a few of the neighbors this morning in celebration of the white stuff.

    Thanks for sharing.

    We are lucky here at Cypress Mountain http://cypressmountain.com/ and we sudn't complaining for what we thought lack of snow (comparing the year b4). We've been riding on JJA since Nov 8 on mixed Man Made Powder + fresh snow which is best condition for HBer. Last Monday we had 30CM snow dump and now SBer can also enjoy. The Visibility might be an issue but at least the snow condition is real good.

    Snow, snow, snow.

    In Greece we might not have a lot of money but we sure do have a lot of snow,all the ski resorts have close to 1 meter snow coverage!

    Having the same problem out here in Oregon. We had some snow around Thanksgiving (which allowed the resorts to open) and not much to speak of since then.

    We are finally getting a decent storm this week but it is falling mostly as rain.

    yep.

    Today was the 1 year anniversary of the chairlift falling off the tower at Sugarloaf, Maine. There is no snow cover on that trail today. Last year there was a decent base and 20" of fresh for the unfortunate to land on.

    Winter is taking its sweet time getting here.

    The new Skyline lift is pretty nice though Jack. My new favorite lift. I have to say that despite the lack of natural snow, Sugarloaf has good conditions.
