    It's all ruined here in NE PA. Almost two weeks above 40 and lots of rain have eroded the base to zilch. I'll make a run up to Jay Peak when the rates drop in late March but aside from that our season is done unless Mother Nature sends us some help.

    Here at Blue Mnt it’s washed off quite a bit but there’s still plenty for them to push around if needed! Should last us out the month of iMarch !!

    We always get another cold spell and snow in March. That being said, might be time to polish up the golf clubs and dirt bikes! Has been a great season up till now. Plenty of great days of skiing in the NorthEast.

    Bob, looks like you picked a decent weekend to go North. Do you know how to ski deep powder?
    Can't wait to see the photos from your trip. All we are getting in NJ is rain!:(

    Lol, funny upon looking out the window this morning after riding and firepit grilling this past week, but this is March weather. Back to snowblower handlebars and skis for the next several days.

    Here at ZBlue Mnt. We got about 4” of heavy slush out of that event! More than an 1” of Rain didn’t help matters !!

    Still got enough till end of the Month.

    Owner of our Mountain is just toooo cheap to turn on the compressors this time of year! Conditions could be perfect and she just won’t do it! Since her father passed away Our season just keeps getting shorter and shorter and the list of a Season Pass keeps going Up and Up! Shame Really as ZBlue is the Best in the area !

    Same deal in southwestern PA (7 Springs, etc). I just got back from a week at Big Sky (awesome). Putting my ski stuff away this afternoon after a quick tune/wax. Hard to ski local after a week of this:

    Great trip, lots of fun with 11 friends at the Willows and one of them being my Son made it priceless. lots of snow, small ice in the middle of some trails-stay on the side and the fluff was fantastic. Serious visibility issues all weekend limited pics[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We skied another day in south central PA @ Whitetail. 3 days of snow making has brought it back to the same as mid December. Off to Blue Mountain on Thursday and Friday for a PSIA clinic. I hope it is ok!
