    BTW,
    I bet Mt Du Lac was even better, they have a little bowl, and the only opened at 4:00, so they had the full storm’s accumulation lying there untouched when they opened.

    Im just hoping to get into the tree run at Troll tomorrow. No one usually skis it so there's always tons of leftover powder in there. They've had 15" recently so everything should have good cover. Too cold for me today. We're already skiing Saturday and Sunday so I'm not dying to get out today/tonight with these cold temps.

    Big storm Monday/Tuesday! 8-12" it appears in the twin cities hills. This is getting fun.

    don't think it'll swing south enough but hey, weather forecasting is far from a science at 2 days out. least of late for my forecasters

    Yeah the track on these is always difficult to predict. Who knows at this point. Until Monday afternoon it's all a guess.

    Great cycle we're in right now. Looks like there's a solid chance of more snow late in the week also, in addition to the two rounds coming up here. These last three storms plus what's to come should be a great base for a solid 2nd half of the season.

    Looks like Lutsen finally got the Mystery Chair repaired. They're 100% open now.

    School canceled here today. We'll be leaving by 3:00 to hit Trollhaugen. Will need to bring both sets of skis tonight. Free skiing early then GS beer league later on.

    We've got 4-5" at my house. Roads are a total mess.

    Been a great season really since around holidays and on at my local resorts, mainly Chestnut. Another 6" overnight with a few more inches today. Will be there for several days over the long weekend with more snow now expected Sunday. That's a relatively new forecast in the models as yesterday morning they weren't showing much, hope it materializes.

    And it has been groomed. :) Business is business, though we can do some "tree" skiing here.

    Biggest ski weekend of the year coming up. Where's everybody going? Looks like we might have some flurries, maybe an inch in the south metro. Hopefully more. I'll most likely be at Welch on Sunday or Monday.

    Chestnut. Just over the river is now on a winter weather watch. Give it a few more hours they will be too. 3-5" of dry fluffy stuff expected throughout Sunday, locally could get a bit more or less.

    Love being there when it snows, skiing Sunday Monday. You are right, is going to be crowded.

    More snow this Wednesday. Potential for 4+" in the twin cities... My weather guy is saying there could be a very large storm next Sunday FYI. Still a ways out though.

    I'm starting to get used to my Wed night patrol shifts having fresh snow.

    Snowiest Feb ever recorded likely after this storm and the one on Sunday. That is amazing.
