Default temps still warm?

it seems like we are running behind last year on the temp dropping enough for snow. wasnt it the 6 or so that cat or sugar opened part way? la nina isnt being a good girl yet.

looking at the daytime temps for the next 10 days, we arent on snow for at least the first 10 days of nov.

well app hasnt opened before december for the last 2 years because it has not gotten cold enough. So I would not worry yet..we still have about 3 weeks before its really time to get serious about opening. On a positive note though it has already been cold..really cold for mid/end of october. Plus we have already gotten some natural snow. I do not remember getting snow this early last year. So I am hopeful that the next cold blast will come to stay.

Yeah but Sugar and Cat both had to close back down for a few weeks as it got warm again. I don't think anybody really opened for good until late November/early December.

KEN is correct.. they did shut back down for some days... turkey day is my goal.. if these temps stay how they have been the past 3 nights the ground will be getting cold.. and that is the key item we need at the moment.. well COLD is what we need.. but it is comming.. that is for sure

even though it is supp to be warm during the day..its actually right at/below average temps for early nov. Plus with nights getting down to the low 30's the ground will be getting ready.

Last year was a very early yr. Rarely does opening day come so early. Maybe 2x in 10 yrs. Generally its the end of Nov. or 1st of Dec. It can be up around X-mass till NC slopes open on a bad yr.
If it's killin ya that bad... Snowshoe is generally open around turkey day...
Just saying.. I'm considering it.

Snowshoe is sounding like a good idea right about now...
