    Honestly with the winds forecasted though saturday skiing will be good, if we have lifts. Wind chills on saturday are suppose to be -51.

    Where are you seeing that forecast? I just checked Accuweather and it was saying the winds would be 10 mph or less on Saturday.

    :roflmao: No. They're brand new and I wanted to ski them at least once before I take them out to Jackson next month. I'll probably stick with the FX94's.

    I'm going to ski Loon a half day Saturday and then Sunday. I haven't been there for about 30 years. But it is close and on my Ikon. I figure I was unlikely to use those days anyway, so won't mind "wasting" a pass day on a partial day. Anybody else interested?

    I skied Loon for the first time in my life this November and now have 3 days there this year. For a small mountain it skis pretty big. I haven't encountered the crowds yet but we'll see how it is on Saturday. We're planning on parking at the south lot which has been less crowded Just so easy to get to for a day trip from the burbs.

    Do you want to try to connect? I have no idea where anything is, and don't really know when I will arrive Saturday.

    Stowe report for Friday. Posted while waiting for my boots to warm up enough to even contemplate getting my feet out.

    Met up with @epic and his daughter for the morning. Suffice it to say I suck at a substantially different level then they do. But we did our duty and destroyed as much powder — and hot chocolate — as possible. Starr, Lookout and Hayride were all choice. Well, not the top of Starr which was wind blown ice.

    Afternoon was spent on the warmer gondi skiing powder bumps down Chin Clip. That didn’t suck either. Definitely got windier with flatter light in the afternoon.

    Time to pry off the boots...

    Ha, same boat Kevin, waiting for the boots to warm up. I could force them off, but it was cold, I’ll wait.

    Approx. what time did gondola open today? I need to give my know-it-all powder chasing friend who decided there wouldn't be enough snow there or that if there was the gondola would not open some crap. But then he will just say it was too cold. lol

    Hairdryer :thumb:

    Gondola would have spun at either 8:30 or 9:00. Ran all day; no wind holds. There were a LOT of tracks heading out to Angel Food.

    Today at Stowe. It was a ghost town except for the Gondi. Basically no one skiing

    Almost no one at Bretton Woods today either. Great conditions. Not much wind.
    There was one big family group that booked their vacation some time ago, with everyone there to learn to ski. They did, but they were cold.
