Gore Mountain phone call 10:30 am: Emily is out West, but her backup answered the phone. She indicated that 6 inches of snow fell before precip stopped overnight. I pushed on NCP. She’d spoken to the groomers and they made no mention of anything but snow overnight. Apparently it’s wet at the bottom, because that was how it fell. She said she’d call it packed powder.
I told her she should post it up, people REALLY want to know what is up. She said she’d talk to patrol first, and then update the site.
From the Garnet Hill Website, 9:30 am: “Friday, Feb 26th – 38″ of fresh snow. Trails are open as we are clearing down branches. We hope to commence grooming this afternoon after branches are cleared and the snow has time to dry.”
Email, Emily, 9am: Spoke to Patrol. No mention of NCP.
Email, North River, 1200 feet, 8:30 am: Snowed til midnight then NCP all night after that.
Email, Igerna Hermit, 1100 feet, 7:00 am: “Reporting from my station – 1.06″ ncp yesterday and .61″ ncp all last night ending this morning.”

My wife is a marketer and it amazes me sometimes how clueless they can be at Gore. What? People actually look at the website? And they want to know what the conditions are like – now not yesterday? Ughh. Good thing there are some people on the ground. How many people do they loose because they look at a day old report and just say F-IT.
Garnet Hill – waiting for the snow to dry. I love it.
1.75 inches of NCP? Yikes.
The Igerna Hermit is about 10(?) miles from the base of Gore. I threw it out there because I had it.
Website is reporting (or maybe implying is a better word) that at some elevation it was all snow. If that elevation is 2800 feet there will be a lot of tree skiing that didn’t get ncp.
It’s a little like splitting hairs though. The snow was so wet not sure how much the ncp matters.
Seems like if days are warm, skiing could be decent. In any case I’ll take all this uncertainty over what we had last month.
All speculation should come to end in a few hours. EDeO has a buddy out doing the research now.
