I have been to Camelback and Hunter a few times already... Hunter this past Sunday was pretty solid. Should be spring like this weekend around these parts.

Would like to get back out to Elk.. but haven't had a chance yet. Have two Stowe trips planed and will be heading somewhere west in March.
I'm thinking about Elk this Saturday, I figure it'll probably hold up better than Camelback or Blue after some warmer temps and possibly a little rain. It's still been pretty cold at night this week so hopefully the mountains have been blowing at night.

Figured I'd give a little New York love here. A teaser a threw together on Windows Movie maker after a few runs of filming. Finally got Sony Vegas Pro so I should be getting better quality. Just for enjoyment, don't get your panties in a bunch.

Might have another chance for a little more friday as well. Either way, temps have been good and I would expect guns have been going strong.

edit: Brucew just realized you said you were at Elk. Were you up there Saturday or Sunday? I may want to head up that way this weekend since they are usually lighter on the crowd size but worried about how it might look after the "thaw" Snow making up there is quite as robust as other places .

Anyone in the Holiday Valley area?

I had plans to head north to Michigan's UP next weekend but that fell through. Considering a trip out to Holiday Valley just to ride somewhere new.

I was there on Saturday. The snow was a little wet but still good. The coverage was good on most of the mountain, there were only a few areas where it was getting thin and you could see dirt poking through.

It was absolutely beautiful in the morning, the summit was above the cloud level, the only thing you could see was a couple other peaks in the distance. This is a shot from the riders left of the mountain right above one of the black diamonds. Pretty epic dropping into it



here's a shot from the lift...it only stayed like this for about a half hour before there was fog everywhere

I'd wait until next weekend. It'll be worth it then. Everything is kind of recovering here now. It is one of the best places to ride around here, but bring your wallet. Shit ain't cheap....then again what nice resort is?

I go to Holiday Valley every Saturday, sometimes stay for Sunday too. It's awesome, when there is snow.

Cool well i'll let you know if I make it out that way. Slim chances as of now but I have been trying to get to a few new ski areas and HV is within a fairly reasonable drive.
