Out here in Utah were lucky if one of our resorts stay open till July 4th, still fun to go ride the mountains then come down to the city where it's 90 degrees - it definitely messes with your mind

I doubt it'll be really slushy because its only going to be in the mid 50s, but be prepared for a little different conditions just in case. You'll want to keep your speed up, especially if you're approaching a flat area as the snow will be slower. Also it can get a little bumpy and sort of toss you around, especially if you're not careful with your edges. It might be a good day to try out some steeper terrain if the greens are too slow.

|Bones||Last March, I rode at Tremblant during a freakish heat wave, there was a humidex reading of 34C (90F). Weird, but great!|

You guys out in PA have been 2-3 days behind us in MI this season for weather. Most resorts open now are boasting 24-40" base or more, that ain't going anywhere in one or two days of warm weather.
Riding in those temps can be a mixed bag sometimes it's slushy and fun sometimes it's like riding on a wet carpet and it sucks. I'm hoping it's fun... got plans to meet up with some forum friends on Saturday.
I once went snowboarding in Michigan and it was 84 degrees. So, it's certainly possible!

|BigmountainVMD||I'm here in Philly and most of the mountains have cold enough temps at night to make the snow for good turns. I'm not headed up this weekend, but MLK weekend I'll be at Camelback or Elk.|

Ok thanks. I'm feelin' much better about Saturday now. I was probably going to go anyway because it's pretty much the only thing I look forward to in life
We get no snow here so everything over at Shawnee is man-made, groomed hard pack. They *should* have a good base then. I can't wait.
On a side note, I hate hot weather; I prefer freezing my a$$ off on the snow.
