Whitetail, Roundtop, Liberty

Anyone else that goes to any of these mountains going through snowboard withdrawal? The weather is terrible.

Rider161- Have you been there recently? I'm thinking about going next week, is it worth a 5 hour drive?

I'm sitting in my condo at Silver Creek right now. If you want to ride it's worth the 5 hour drive...but here are the current conditions. Right now there are 4 slopes open top to bottom at Silver Creek, on the Basin side of Snowshoe there are 6ish runs top to bottom open. I don't care how many slopes Snowshoe says are open, there are probably 10 total. That said, the snow is decent considering it's been warm and it has rained a good bit. It rained tonight, and they shut down the slopes at Silver Creek because of a thuderstorm and there was lightning. It rained hard yesterday also. Beyond that the riding has been ok, but the temp. has been warm. Think spring conditions.

Seriously. What ass-tastic weather. Feels like spring.

I know some who are going down to Canaan next week, hope to hear good things.

Thanks for the first hand report, I'll keep an eye on the weather and make the decision next week. Hopefully this storm coming through will bring some snow!

I have not been there recently. I was there opening day and they had less than that open. However it was the only place semi local that was open From what mdc stated I'm hoping the temp will drop some so that they can start making snow again. We are suspose to go new years for a snowboarding trip but might end up being a full drinking trip which is still awesome but would like to do both

It has not been a good year at all for the mountains, but then again unless you happen to be around the few areas that have had good conditions, it is bad for most of the country. There are still plenty of areas that haven't made it up to full capacity yet.

I was out at whitetail last weekend and will be up at whitetail or liberty this weekend. I only picked up an advantage pass, so at least I can still get my money's worth out of that.
