Today's forecast is kind of goofy with freezing rain even up north??? Hopefully this event is light and does not lock up the snow in a layer of crust. The groomed trails will be fine however as the groomers will chew any crust right up. Maybe we will luck out up high and it will stay snow or sleet.
Looking at the weather forecasts for the weekend it looks like it is going to be cold and windy. If you are heading to one of the big three (Sugarloaf, Saddleback, Sunday River) make sure you check the wind forecasts and mountain reports before you go. There could be a few wind holds this weekend but I don't think the winds are going to be strong enough to shut down entire mountains. Likely a few higher lifts could be impacted.
There was some sad news from Sugarloaf yesterday where a skier died on the green circle Timberline trail after hitting a tree. Our heartfelt condolences to the family. When you think about it, there are millions of runs of skiers each year but unfortunately a few tragic accidents happen. I bet it is safer skiing than driving in a car but that does not diminish the tragedy for this person's family. It does stop and make you think a bit...
Bundle up this weekend and enjoy the snow everyone!
