Man I got my hopes up with that post but there is no snow on the way anywhere in VT or lower NY for the next week or so. Seriously, I think I'm going to go outside and randomly punch someone in the face.

We haven't had snow for a week now and the temps are in the 50s. Wolf creek was pretty damn icy too.

Alyeska:
104" in base
1" last 24 hrs
Dec 31st: 2"
Dec 26th: 1"
Dec 25th: 8"

8 of 9 lifts open
68 of 72 trails open

current temp in girdwood, AK: -8

It'll be sad if I get better boarding for 2 days at Alyeska the week before I go to Breck for a week.

Seriously STFU about anything in Alaska... it's a whole different ball game up there.

And yes I am bitter that I just got back from a 2 week trip covering Utah, Jackson Hole and Tahoe and didn't see more than ice and groomers the entire time... Heavenly only has a 22 in base... and its ALL man made.

If you could go anywhere in eastern PA right now, where would be the spot to go? I have some friends wanting to take a trip this weekend and I have no idea where to send them... Seems like the largest bases are at Sno Mountain, Big Bear, Big Boulder, Jack Frost and Camelback...

Suggestions???

just got back from camelback and it was pretty good. it was starting to snow when i was leaving too.

i was at blue mountain last week and it wasnt half as good as camelback was yesterday.

edit: if you guys like to hit the Park i wouldn't go to camelback. i mean you could but you would have to watch a video online, take a dumb test, and then pay extra. i'd def hit Blue or Big boulder if that was the case. not sure how boulder/jf are with snow yet.

I have been to camelback twice.. all in all, given what they are dealing with I thought it was pretty decent. Probably going to try and get there Friday again. At least we have some winter temps now.

Ok, how about Camelback vs. Elk mountain? Heard good things about both... similar bases...

Id say CBK for park (even though it sucks atm with dirt everywhere) and elk for trials.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

Im from back East man.. I totally feel your pain. I live 6 hrs from the closest good stuff in AK and its not exactly a drive through the park to get there in the winter. Only reason I'm getting to go this year is because I'm flying there for work. Fairbanks is shit for boarding....I moved up here and had hopes of awesome boarding everywhere all the time... I did not do my research.
