Backyard syndrome here, not been out yet.

Can't justify driving 2-3 hrs to pay $65 for a half open hill although Nubbys Nob looks the best as usual.

Winter arrives in vengeance here tommorow for the New Year.

First time in over 30 yrs no skiing in Nov or Dec.....playing tennis and maybe some golf too tomorrow.....

Sad, but I like tennis nearly as much and right now I am sure my forehand will be a lot better than my turns

I'm going today for the first time. Not happy about the limited terrain, but what can you do. Impatiently waiting for some good natural to fall so Living Memorial Park can open (I do most of my skiing there because it's cool and I don't have much money.)

Skied 3 days in November at Killington.... if I didn't ski yesterday at Bristol it would have been the first December i've ever missed in my 33 years of skiing.

Ditto on that. Leaving Tuesday for a short trip to Shawnee/Bretton Woods/Cranmore for a few days. Not excited about the limited terrain but it's not like we have much better choice out there.

Went for a hike up Mt Beacon this morning - felt more like April 1st than Jan 1st - Watched an old Warren Miller DVD last night but thats about as close as I got to the real thing.

Nope. Have no plans to go until the end of the month.

If it makes you feel any less sorry for yourselves, I hear Colorado is snowless too.

According to my data:
Beacon was a small rope tow, near Dutchess but separate from Dutchess

Yes it is and yeah it's a good steep hike. No partying for the wife and I last night so we got a good workout and made the summit by 10 am.

Joshua, I leaned to ski at Dutchess back in the 60's and I didn't know of anything on Mt beacon other than Dutchess and the incline railway which serviced the casino at the summit way back when.

Skies Berkshire East yesterday. January 1st, and I was dressed for spring skiing. Lightweight liner (didnt need the shell on my coat), spring gloves, no helmet liner, no face warmer...and I was still sweating like a pig. My niece, who usually is freezing in 10 layers of clothes, was skiing with her jacket unzipped! Unbelievable. Snow conditions were complete slush. Felt like the end of the season.

So Rick, basically you did a lost(Nelsap) Dutchess hike without inviting any of your fellow SJers?

My info posted on the Lost NY site comes from Russ (ThatNYGuy). What can you tell us, Russ?

Yeah sorry about that. It was just a spur of the moment thing with the wife.

I would love to do a SJ trip up there sometime, as there are a number of old Dutchess remains still showing even though it's been lost for over three decades.

Only once at Ski Sundown, in December, so far. It wasn't bad, actually.

I'll fess up. Zero, if I don't count the two times in my backyard on Oct. 30th & 31st. Poor conditions, daughter's surgery, & general laziness have kept me home.
Although it sounds like the central and northern New England Mtns are finally getting some deeper snowfall the last couple days.
I don't always manage to get out before Mid-Jan. IMHO Xmas is expensive for the product available and usually with too many people on too little terrain. When I'm spring skiing in April with no crowds, lots of sunshine and none of that depressing darkness at the end of the day, I wonder why I ever ski in January in the first place.

4 days in late Dec./Jan., half of what I usually would have skied by now.

12/23-Jiminy-Decent, but brown in places
12/26-Loon-Very good for what "winter" this has been
12/27-Cannon-Needs much more snow
1/1-Wachusett-Surprisingly good, man-made only, closed trails still completely brown

Count me in, or rather out. I usually don't go until most trails are open, it's a long drive. Except 2 years ago I went to meet NELSAPers in December at Okemo (1/4 open), and last year to Mohawk in December because my daughter wanted to go (4 trails open).
