OPEN, Tuesday the 17th. The temperature at 7am is 18º, the high today 34º. There is a storm coming in. Only forecast in the last couple of days. This is a weather blog and the fella is up in Mad River Glen. So north of us remember that as you read. But he is interesting and he talks about weather patterns which are very applicable to us. http://madriverglenweather.blogspot.com/
Our best guess, and that is all we can do, is 3 to 8 inches of snow. Ian would like thick snow, if we had 6 inches of snow he is hoping it packs down to 5 inches of base. Even though the skiing is still good, getting a little thin out there. The sunrise is red, always a good sign for a storm.
We are still surprised, but the skiing is good. It really is better than ok. The machine above is why the skiing is good. It is a 1984 Piston Bully, Mercedes engine, with a power tiller, among other things. Chuck bought it in 1995, Ian was in 2nd grade, and it was the focus of the birthday party. Chuck has worked on it over the years, but now that Ian has taken over, he babies her. He cleaned the inside, washed the windows, put the passenger seat back in. She has new tracks a couple years ago, and a new battery last week. But, for Ian the coup de gras has been his fancy LED spot/flood lights, he can see and we can see where he is in the woods.
But really, the power tiller and many trips around with it are what makes crusty snow skiable.
We need snow for the longer trails to be open. That is it. No Chickadee, no Upper or Middle Blue Jay. We need snow.
