    50/50 shot. The weather systems have been pulling a lot of warm air up ahead and it's been most rain/ice followed by a cold day or two. There's a link to one of the colleges somewhere that will get you a real-time shot of Whiteface...

    But looks alone can be decieving as ice mixed with a little snow looks about the same as 4 feet on top.

      its getting there...

      I live/work at the loj and it feels like winter at least, tonight's supposed to dip down to 0-5 degrees. There's about 4 inches on the ground here. My friend went up Cascade/Porter today and said there's about a foot on the summit. I was up a few days ago and there was about 6 inches on Cascade. It's not a pleasant time for hiking because there is not enough snow for snow shoes, but the trails are slippery with the snow and ice.

      We are hoping for a big dump very soon, its just been an inch here, an inch there. There's a storm headed our way Monday/Tuesday but again there's a good possibility of ice/rain with that.

      I'm about to go cross country ski around property and maybe attempt the old road to marcy dam. wish me luck.

        Was in Indian Pass over the weekend. Temps got down to 2 degrees on Fri night and about 25 last night.
        There were about 8 inches as you started getting a little higher in els. about 2 inches fell last night. Not much around the FSM.

          Heard reports that there is about 12" - 24" on Marcy this past weekend.
          A man needs to believe in something. I believe I'll go hiking.

            There is a report on VFTT for 12/3-12/4 of over two feet of snow in the Lake Tear/Four Corners area.
