Gonna b a brutally cold day. But It'll keep the gapers off the hill tho!
That's how it was last Friday night at Nubs, only with heavier snowfall and it lasted through the entire night. You're right, those winds keep the folks away though.

Oh man!!!! This is brutal! Wind has dropped below 25+ mph, but the temp b4 windchill is -2 right now. My eyelids were sticking together when I blinked and the moisture froze my eyelashes together!!

...and talk about velcro snow??? The groomers and chop is fast enough, but anyplace that has patches of windblown on it, (...which is everywhere today. ) that shit grabs your board like dropping from 5th gear to 3rd on the freeway!!!! Have to be careful where you transition your turns cuz if you flatten the board on a patch of that stuff going from one edge to the other? Whew! Sketch!!!!

was hoping to ride tomorrow morning but i've been slammed at work and if temps are -10 when I wake up, I guess I'm just heading in to the office. Might as well catch up on shit while it's brutal cold out, save those days off for when it's a little milder.

Saturday should be about 30F, good day to ride. Might have to take a "sick" day on Monday if the forecast is right, might get a good snowfall Sunday night...

Might head over to Cannonsburg for a couple hours tomorrow. Sam let me know if you'd be interested, I can meet you at the carpool lot again.

Well, I hope you guys do get out to do some riding!

I gotta say, the weather here Is sucking all the fun out of this trip.

The temp before windchill is -19˚ this morning. Windchill is -35˚ The air is soooo freaking dry that there isn't even frost on my windshield. With temps like that? I'm not even going to bother with making first chair this morning.

Tue & wed weren't too terribly bad. And and of course wed. night, the night of the video, that was really good but it was only snowing for about the last two hours. But yesterday? That was crazy cold all day! Yetsreday morning, It was myself and two other skiers on the hill for the first two hours! That's it!!!! Nobody else braving that kinda cold.

Snow was really slow in spots with the wind blowing like a banshee! Hard to ride in conditions like that! (…I did log a top speed of 46.5 mph on Amy's run, So,... )

TWC is calling for a chance at a couple 2-3 inches later when the temps warm to a balmy 13˚, so I can only cross my fingers & pray!

When I went outside today then saw the temps up north my first thought was about you. Stay warm my man.
