Looks like Boston gets slammed again. WaWa may be the place to be (or Yawgoo, if they open). Looks like it will hug the coast and most ski areas will not see much...but, it will delay the "backyard effect" another week...

    Yawgoo, and powder day are a big oxymoron on the enjoyment side of things!!!  Been there, did that once,on about a 12" day back in the early 90's when it was dry snow that fell..... Just not enough pitch, to be able to really be able to ski more than 3 or 4 " of powder there without spending more time skating than actually sliding downhill!!  :D

    Forecasting model conflict here. NWS had 8-12" for Northern Connecticut, now it's 4-8".

    Ski Conditions Report: A detailed report describing the snow conditions on the mountain the day of your visit. Skiers should become familiar with the following snow surface descriptions: Ice: Packed Powder, Slush: Packed Powder, Frozen Granular: Packed Powder , Packed Powder - A thin covering of snow over bare earth.

    10" to 15" here in southern PA. Whitetail and Liberty will benefit nicely. Heavy wet snow good to help increase their bases a little.

    I'm contemplating skiing at Otis Ridge on Friday or Saturday night for the last night skiing of the season.

    Huge bust in the forecast by the NWS and media outlets. We where forecasted to get 12-15" and got a coating here in Northern Connecticut.

    Same here in SE Mass.  Forecast bounced around for a few days then settled at 8-12".  It's been snowing all morning but we have not accumulated one flake.  
    On the other hand, the wind and coastal flooding is no joke.  I just tried to take my dog for a walk on the beach.  It was low tide but it was almost up to the high tide line.

    You ski because even if you don't do it well, it's still a blast....

    I brushed off about an inch of heavy wet snow from my car in south Central Mass. about a mile from the Connecticut line this morning. There seemed to be a bit less than that in Worcester - or at least in downtown Worcester. Temperature was in the mid-30s, too warm for whatever fell to stick much. For forecasters, win a few, lose a few.
