Besides that, our forecasters always predict doomsday and it's never that bad. If they say 20 cm, it will likely be anywhere from 5-15 cm at most.

Hopefully I'm wrong on all counts. The one good thing about Ontario, is that when it snows, people actually stay away from the hills. That is the 1-2 days a year I will actually make an effort to go snowboarding here!
If snow falls overnight at blue mountain they tend to leave it there, especially on south base. If you go for the first chairs at 8 30 you'll get an hour or of riding in whatever snow has fallen overnight, last year there were a couple of saturdays/sundays with enough new snow that there was some float to it, say 20 cms.

That said that's about as good as it gets, and it's true the forecasters call for more than what usually falls.

Friday morning will be nice conditions on Ontario hills.
