Believe me I saw tons and tons of huge patches of ice everywhere man.

I'd recommend waiting til some new snow falls then hit up the mountain.

SnowBun Better conditions, so you're not missing out

baldylox Ehhh...good point. Screw it... Wanted to get some riding in on the new boots. Guess I've gotta wait till next weekend.

SnowBun 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)

Vlaze 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.

baldylox I was thinking I might head up to Windham tomo..... worth it?

Vlaze 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.

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.
