Has anybody been around the slides in the adirondacks? Curious to see if there is enough snow to justify a trip up to some of the slides.

Thanks

not sure, but it sounds like they've been getting snow. they also got a bunch late Dec, so imagine base depths could be adequate. try calling ADK mtn club at adirondack loj at heart lake 518-523-3441. they may have more info for you regaring base depths and trail conditions for marcy, avy pass, colden, etc. worth trying, might help. otherwise, adk weather info at 518-523-3518.

colder lately w/ some new snow in N. VT. about 10-12" new over past few days, helping to heal the holiday week damage. looking for more...

this w/e looks good for poking around the bc. watch for open river beds/drainages that are hiding just below any new snow. things are still lurking. weather should be ideal for touring this sat/sun w/ some sun and colder temps. hoping for some reports from others.

rock on.

39 BELOW here this am no shit, just temp not windchill. actually took a picture of the thermometer w/ my cell thru the window, will upload soon. unreal.

VERY cold past few days but sunny, barely 0 for daytime highs lately, obviously 30+ below at night. high pressure should slowly drift east loosening it's grip w/ snow expected sunday and more moderate temps, but still cold.

next week looks active and cold. bc is pretty much there w/ a base now and from 10-18" of dense pow on top. this sunday looks good for a tour for weekenders, should be snowing all day.

This weekend was off the hook! Despite not receiving that much snow, conditions are amazing. Snow fell through the weekend which resulted in about 6-8in in the last week. Forecasts are calling for snow thiw week with up to 10in by tuesday night. Temps will remain cold and snowy much of the week... so if you haven't made it out in the backcountry yet, this is about as good as it gets! Creeks and streams are now filled up and frozen. Snowpack is still variable but everything is nicely set up. Still have to be carefull at lower elevations but as soon as you reach 2000ft, the snow is great!

I'm always up at Jay or somewhere around... I would like to make the drive down to Stowe... Should try and hook up with a few people here.

The only bad thing right now up here is that apparently, since Jay re-opened the ridge access to Big Jay, the place is flodded with riders and is getting bumpy in some areas... We might go check it out from the ridge early sat. morning and skin back up for a couple of laps... We'll see!

tue jan 20

we hit ch a couple times this past week and stowe bc today, conditions are superb. things are def filled in above 3200' w/ some exposed drainages/water below that. stayed high on steeper NW aspects around the hump, skin in was good. set additional skin tracks in upper glades, 10-18" consolidated fluff.

colder temps move in again tonight but rebound tomorrow w/ sun. will be back up around the hump. looks to stay cold through early nxt week w/ little moisture to work with. a good time to start sniffing around the bc for the goods.

also looking for partners anytime midweek and sundays too. pm if interested, happy to guide if desired.

things are looking good off the beaten path at stowe right now, although some of the lines higher up on mansfield could use another good storm to fill in a little more. going exploring tomorrow, so hopefully i'll find some good stuff and not spend an hour and a half bushwacking like i did on monday.

We got 5-7" of fluffy, sticky stuff over the last few days. It will compact down quite a bit, and not add too much to the Mansfield snow stake, but every little bit helps. It's going to get mind-numbingly cold, I hear, over the next few days...

i would say slides are in -- plenty of snow up there - was up there all week not this past week but week before -- didn't actually ride any slides but bagged a few peaks and toured a ton and got some turns in -- I have tons of Daks maps/beta etc. -- I typed out like a full on conditions report in response to your post the other day but lost it somehow and don't feel like retyping -- don't hesitate to contact me for more info/beta on the daks...

-will

wed jan 28

started DUMPING early this am, now at 12-14" as of 8 pm and still snowing steady in N. VT. should persist thru midnight w/ storm totals around 16-20" by thurs am at elevation. clearing thurs, planning to tour/ride mansfield w/ twostowe on a dawn patrol ascent.

so here we are... base depths in the bc along upper ridgelines and summits are finally approaching 50"+ and PRIMO. get out and get some while the gettin is good. things might be a bit of a slog tomorrow, but should settle out quickly. this w/e will be epic pretty much everywhere in the bc.
