Today was dominated by flat light conditions so I did not stay out long. The temps ranged from a low of 19 to 29, no wind and only a few short periods of brightness. The surface conditions were exceptional with nice powder, no ice and a few trails with whale humps that were not groomed: Huega & Dropoff. The main line, east side trails and Cliff / Racer’s all nice. I did not make it to the west side. The “Z” lift was running fine. Snow making continued a few trails. The Police races were held yesterday & today and the Firemen come in next Tue – Wed for their races. There were no lift lines at all. Racer’s is now groomed every night since it is among the most visible trails from the road and parking lots therefore the mountain wants to always show people on it. Someone in mgmt finally woke up.
The weather looks great for tomorrow with plenty of sun and warmer temps. The 7 day outlook: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Hunter&state=NY&site=ALY&lat=42.2112&lon=-74.2157#.VMFRXi6wFBI
