You guys are lucky believe it or not. Although you guys have just gotten rain, it is a foreshadow of what is to come. Here in Western NY, all the storms have been missing us. This is telling me that when it finally does get col enough most of the storms are going to miss us. We still can rely on lake affect though I guess.

same here in the midwest. Part of our state got 10" then it melted. Temps are finally getting into teens and I"m seeing lots of posts from resorts that they are turning on the guns today.
Fake snow is still snow around here....

Several days have been high 60s to low 70s here in Southwest Ohio the last two weeks. We never get much snow but at least it could hurry up and get cold enough to fire up the SMI guns!

I'm from the Pittsburgh area and knew this was going to happen.

I kinda like following snow trends, weather events etc, and my prediction for Seven Springs, Hidden Valley, Blue Knob, Wisp, Timberline, Snowshoe and other surrounding smaller resorts:

November, total bust. Snowshoe not likely to open until Dec 4 with very limited terrain, if at all, not worth the trip for most.

December. Starts out cold, giving way to some nice snowmaking but rather limited snowfall, enough to open some slopes at snowshoe, and possibly open the rest of the resorts on a rather limited basis too a bit later. But what else is new.

Mid/late Dec I think we will see a couple, or at least one nice snowfall and very favorable snowmaking conditions for that time of the year, which will have all the resorts firing on all 8's very quickly.

Jan. kinda of a bust. Colder than normal, decent snowmaking but rather icy conditions and very very limited snowfall. You'll get to ride, but you'll have to wax special for the hard snow from the snowmakers. Best times to ride, early early morn, then again at mid-day on blue sky days. Everything else will be a sea of sprayers scraping the very limited snow and snow grooming efforts.

Fed, early much of the same, then a sliver of hope in the form of a few days of changing weather with an ok snowfall, MAYBE two within a short period of time, which is quickly dashed by really bad weather. Mostly RAIN! Alas, cheer up - you're about to get dumped on.

Late Feb/Early March - winter wonderland. Snow Snow Snow! Careful out there, save your body for this part of the year because you'll be kicking yourself if you miss it. Hopefully my shoulder cuff injury which I hoped would have healed from last season by now, will hold out so I can get surgery in the spring and be ready for next season.

Mid March - END. Typical. Little to no snowmaking occurring, a little spurt of snow, then just what you would expect for the area but a bit drier than normal. Which, in the end is good because if it isn't going to snow, then at least hope it doesnt rain. It really mucks things up, and for every decent rainfall at this point, you can expect at least 1-2 days less that you will be able to ride toward the end of the season.

Predicted Close for all resorts is March 25; however Holiday Valley in New York will stay open a week longer due to a late season lake effect snow much like they received last season. 7Springs pondskim, April 7th.

Well there you have it. Sounds pretty vague and typical of what we get, but I'm definitely putting it out there that I'm going against the Old Farmers Almanac and saying that we will have LESS than average snowfall, unless the couple dumpings we get makes up for all of that but it will be close. I think overall, for the weekend only riders, you will have the same, possibly even more days to ride than last year due to the rain but, the riding will not be as enjoyable due to the conditions.

I REALLY hope that I have this COMPLETELY backwards. I've have made this mistake before, complete opposite of what I predicted and I enjoyed every day of it.
