    Awesome. I’m going to pull thursday night in the parking lot and head up to the bowl at the crack of dawn. Friday starts my spring break (woo!) and I have no cash and nothing to do so it looks like I might be dancing around the ravines for the week.

    had an excellent tour today w/ a buddy up again. wasn’t sure we’d still be able to skin from the truck, but were psyched to see we could. got up to the pass just as snowpack was softening. north and west aspects stayed firm all morning. it was bluebird and perfect, calm wind.

    fyi, there’s still about a 12-18″ base up near ridgelines and it’s all corned up. down low we’re looking at 6-12″ and stuff starting to get pokey, water’s flowing too. still, plenty of turns and snow to play on though.

    resorts are fun and doing well, though dropping slopes quickly.

    rain/snow here tonight and poss snow again mid-week too. we’ll see.

    just an update if you’re wondering.

    Soooo tempting, but I have a (non-skiing/riding) friend in town this weekend, so likely not… I’ll see if I can convince him to come watch the free show on Lunch Rocks…

    hey – check the nh forecast re: tucks this coming w/e. it’s snowing here right now in vermont at 1800′.

    temps up there will be just below freezing this weekend w/ snow this week and snow showers thru sunday. should be socked in mid-week, poss showing mid-winter conditions again by the w/e w/ avy hazard going up. depends how things play out. there were reports of holes, water and snow bridges already over last couple weeks, especially around little headwall. with any significant new snow, could present some concern if covered up.

    watch for wet slide activity and check the advisory online. have fun.

    woke up to 3″ new and snow falling steady at mt hunger at 1800′. lull in precip right now but looking at another good shot of snow tonight, forecasting 8-12″ along ridgelines possible by thurs eve in n. greens. winter storm warning in effect for eastern slopes.

    call in sick, wax up and hit the bc, stowe, smuggs or jay on thursday. should be good everywhere.

    I was up to tucks on sunday with a beautiful day. I rod ethe lip 3 times since other areas were a dicy bootpack up with soft boots. upper snowfields are weak as heck but there are stilla few lines to be had up there. i walked down from the ravine to hojos to skip the littlehead wall and its massive hole. Heading up to jay for a day or two, hopefully we’ll spot some of you guys up there.

    today was great. 10″ new snow was dry and bonded well to old snow surface. can’t believe almost a foot of dry goods in early april. hit it w/ 2 friends, could be one of our last powder days this season.
