Posts Tagged ‘Need snow’

Super Bowl Super Sunday at Whiteface, skiing for $25, I couldn’t miss that. Parking lot were very very full, however I don’t know where the people were, the liftlines were reasonable. The longest we waited was maybe 5 minutes at around 11am, after that, it was more like 1-3 minutes waits. 😮

Like the other reports of this weekend, it’s was warm, it felt more like April 6th in temperature and snow cover. 8)

With this in mind, conditions were great for an April day, Upper Skyward had loose granular that bumped up nicely as the day went by. The other option off the Summit was Paron’s Run (didn’t ski Follies) was also bumped up by 1PM. The whole upper mountain was soft and fun to ski. 😀

Conditions were similar on Little Whiteface (Wilderness, Mountain Run, Thruway), however there were more icy spots. 😕

Essex on Little Whiteface remained hard and icy all day. Now for the negative, IT WAS FEBRUARY, not April and the snow coverage was thin in some spots and a few bare patches could be found, edge of trails might have hidden branches or rocks as I found out on Upper Skyward. 😡

Sheets of blue ice could be found on the flatter places on the mountain, some trails will probably never open this year unless it’s starts snowing now and we get a few BIG dumps. Trails like Northway, Empire (LW) and Cloudspin were virtual bare of any coverage. The Slides??? Forget about the Slides, unless Winter comes back in a very big way. 😦

Next Super Sunday is March 6th??? Hopefully Winter comes back with snow. 🙄
