Yeah me too. If they get a nice jump line going there I'll be in heaven.


So Caberfae sent out an email, not that anyone here was expecting an opening on Thanksgiving weekend but they officially said it wasn't happening.
Based on the current weather forecast, a Thanksgiving Weekend opening is not going to happen this year. However, the temps are forecasted to cool at the end of this week and we'll get the snow guns going again as soon as possible.
So there's that. I'm still holding out a sliver hope for December 1st. We'll see.

Nope. A wise man once told me to never add up the amount of money I've spent on snowboarding.

Ever.

Hawk Island posted a better pic of their plan. This, I imagine, is as close to a trail map as they can get.



Solid looking.

Some optimistic news from the meteorologists...

Lake effect snow is on its way to parts of midwest (incl Michigan) and the northeast.



Long-range forecasts now favoring above-normal snow for northern lower peninsula, east coast/appalachia.

Quote:
A higher frequency of clipper systems is expected for the northern Plains and Midwest compared to what meteorologists were expecting early in the fall.

Clipper systems are fast-moving storms, originating from Alberta, Canada, that carry little moisture. Light to moderate snow usually falls on the northern edge of the clipper system track.
Clipper systems, FYI, are the namesake of Crystal Mountain's high speed "Clipper" quad chair.

Wow, if that system comes to pass that could be the kick start that they need up there.

I'm still holding out hope for Dec 1

So am I. Forecast is favorable for now, although that has been changing almost daily...

I honestly think that if black ops 2 had not came out I would have gone insane from the fact that I can snowboard…
