    According to TK the skiing weatherman, Whiteface could get up to 2’ next week. And Stein’s run at Sugarbush still skis great with 6’+ base and skinable from the base. Keep your skis in the vehicle, not over yet.

    I think most skiers are optimists (quixotic?) about what the future shall bring. “This winter is nothing like when I was a kid, but there may still be an incredible dump around the corner…” Any adult paying attention sees the reading on the wall though. Another piece is that for those not obsessed with winter recreation, they are probably grateful – “Less snow to shovel!” I’d venture to say a good portion of the population is happy about a 60 degree day in February. Sad…

    You were skiing along fine until you turned off a political cliff with a bunch of nonsense. Gore made a billion dollars off green deals, travels by private jet and lives in a 40,000 sq ft house, paid for by fear-mongering false climate change predictions.

    In the meantime Trump reduced per capita carbon emissions more than other countries.

    Maybe the government should do more cloud seeding so the season lasts longer. O you thought climate change was due to cars and cow facts?

    Thank goodness for the other level-headed comments here pointing out the hypocrisy of Gore, the caring or knowledge of what he’s doing at any moment in time of Biden, and the true insignificance of what Trump or any politician’s actions has on the Earth’s eons-long, predetermined fluctuations in climate.
