Thanks guys. I managed to fit my Burton Wheelie Gig Bag with my board and my girl's board in there as well with no problems. I pushed my back seats down in order to get everything to fit properly since it wont fit sideways as expected. I'm excited to board and hope the trails will be okay with the warm weather.

My other friends headed up to Gore / Whiteface mountain this afternoon. I wonder how much better / worse their conditions are as well.

Lets pray I don't get stuck anywhere! lol

Hope you had a good day, was there yesterday and it was pretty decent. The weather got some of the snow mushlike enough to act like powder and make for good boarding ripping up along the edges of the trails.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Actually I was very disappointed with the trails today at Windham because it was super icy all over the place. I did not find powder if any, at all. Each fall I took today impacted my knee and now I have a huge swelling around it.

I will still go back on the 2nd week of March as I have a bachelor's trip there (yea don't ask why we're doing snowboarding for that kind of a trip lol) I hope by then the conditions will have improved much.

My guess is they didn't groom it over again very much then from Saturday. I didn't find powder as I mentioned, the snow was just soft enough to be mush to act like powder in a way, where enough is covering the ground to kick up instead of hard packed and ice. It always gets icy inevitably at any of the 3 major Catskill resorts due to mostly man-made snow, not enough natural. Also yesterday was warmer than today, so that helped out a bit in softening up the snow, but it still got icy at the day's end.

You gotta stay on the edges of the runs to find a hint of powder. Did you see those giant patches of solid ice on top of the mountain? Crazy stuff. The mountain does have a decent layout though

Eh.....hard to say, any of the 3 Catskill resorts will be around the same conditions. However, I have to say out of the 3, Wind seems to have the best conditions and layout IMO.

I wouldn't do it. After the amount people that were there yesterday and today...

Plus, no new snow, and you're going to be stuck in horrible traffic going back down to LI (3 day weekend, everyone coming back home)
