West Mtn: 02/24/2010

“Jersey powder” conditions (slickpack and chowder) provided fun but challenging telemark skiing at West Mountain tonight. The best skiing surfaces were those areas that had (gasp) been groomed. As a fan of the ungroomed, that is not something I often say.

I don’t know if the ski center posted an “official” measurement, but my observation was that between 12 and 15 inches of moisture-laden snow had fallen.

Friends from various nearby mountainous areas (Lake Luzerne and Fort Anne) reported 2 feet, which seems consistent with the 20+ inches reported by Gore. The woods are now back in play, but conditions for this weekend will certainly be affected by what happens over the next 48 hours, so stay tuned to Jason The Weather Guy’s updates.
