Two exceptional days in a row to be on the slopes. The sun was stronger today but did pop behind some big puffy white clouds at times. The grooming once again was terrific with all main trails except Claire’s (wind blown & slick) covered with corduroy powder. There was a stiff wind today especially on top and on the west side. 44 remained wind blown shiny porcelain. Temps ranged from mid teens to 26 now. The Wednesday crowd was very light with no lines to speak of. In my opinion Rt 80 was the best today however there were no slick trails at all on the front side including Racer’s which was groomed last night. Gunhill was closed for race training but it really was not needed.
We are going sub zero for the next 4 nights as the arctic air returns: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Hunter&state=NY&site=ALY&lat=42.2112&lon=-74.2157#.VO4SiS6wFBI
The crews were dragging the hoses off the mountain today signaling the official end of snow making.
