    We really think we need to plan ahead for this one to get good lodging. We need @TonyC to give us the totality numbers (which might knock out an area if less than 88%)

    Note: This is half tounge in cheek...but if we still have an internet in 2024...we will beam ourselves to New England.

    But what if they have the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame at the same time, at somewhere not in the path of totality?
    Maybe they could have the HOF Induction in the path of Totality!

    How come I can't vote?

    My Maine HS friends are already talking about renting out the Sugarloaf Inn and sponsoring a seniors bump contest. Mostly in jest, but I think if people might start getting serious if reservations start happening.

    I suggested GS gates on the bump run.

    There isn't a reason that I can see for you to not be able to vote.

    I can't vote either. It's gotta be Jay and I was already thinking about this after finding out about 2024. :doh:

    WE'll work on it. If we can't fix it we'll start a new one.
    Paging @Dwight to the courtesy phone. Any Ideas?

    Sorry, we're closing the thread until we get it fixed so we don't lose a bunt of content if we have to start a new one.

    if your serious about skiing while seeing the eclipse you should add in Montreraal Mexico, not far from Monterry.
    Limited skiing, 2 lifts, at best it might be a blue but has +4 minutes for totality and likely the best weather on path.
    Personally I am heading to Durango or Nachez Mexico. We have a lot of friends in the east but odds are a lot better in Mexico.

    I looked it up and they may only have snow in Dec/Jan (and are well outside totality). I thought you were you continuing the ? humor that started with the OP who thinks 88% is OK.

    This link will give you % partiality or duration of totality for any location. The problem with the NE USA is that there is a greater than 50% chance of clouds on the date of the eclipse. Mexico is more like 20-40% and Texas is 40-50%. Picture credit to Jay Anderson and remember YMMV.

    The 2024 eclipse will cross a lot of big cities (Austin is there but close to edge, Dallas and Indianapolis are closer to centerline and Cleveland, Buffalo and Rochester are all very close to centerline), so if it is clear then number of people in the US who have experienced totality will increase.

    your right it's usually only Dec/Jan snow.
    But as an combined event I'd take that limited chance of snow in Montreaal over the chance of overcast in the NE.
    I can always ski the next week,
    no intention of taking skis to Mexico they would probably attract as much unwanted attention as they did one hot August in a New York City bar, that was no fun.

    Looks like a Monday morning to early afternoon to me, the same as this week's eclipse. The eastern townships will get a lot of totality, but how often do they see the sun in early April?
