Harvey’s Disclaimer

I have a good time almost every time I ski. If you are reading my reports to make your own decisions based on conditions – please read the words, and try to tune out the enthusiasm.


Do not mistake my enthusiasm for a positive review of conditions.

It’s easy to say, look at those pictures — looks like that guy had fun. Let’s go skiing!

But I can’t (I won’t!) curb my enthusiasm.

If you choose to use my reports to make ski decisions for yourself, please analyze carefully.

Daily Snow Reports

We’d like to link to maybe SIX or EIGHT ski mountain daily reports. So you could click through the links and get an overview on what an event generated, in terms of snowfall.

Looking for suggestions on which mountains would give the most complete overview of the northeast.

These are the givens. Gore and Whiteface included. At least 2 mountains from VT, one from NH and one from Maine. Mountain needs to update their report religiously, early in the am. (Sadly) Gore is excused from this requirement. Post ideas in comments below.

NY Ski Blog Authors

We’re interested in additional authors for NYSkiBlog this winter. Authors could contribute their own content or pics. Things that might make you right for the job include:

  • Desire to write and shoot for NYSkiBlog
  • Catskill, Adirondack or NY skier
  • Lift served or backcountry
  • Use some kind of mobile device

We’d love to have trip reports from across New York State posted all season long. Whiteface, Gore, Hunter, Belleayre, Plattekill, and Windham passholders are ideal…people who get to the mountain regularly. We’re also very interested in Hickory and Big Tupper.

Pay… well there is no pay. You’ve got to do it for the love of the game. If you are interested post a comment below with an email address or drop me a note at harvey44@nyskiblog.com.
