How far from there are yah? Can you post up later this week and let me know how things are "really" doing if you remember? Sometimes the weather man is way off, and it turns out the opposite. Opening weekend if I remember correctly was supposed to be a slop fest, but turned out to be tacky fun...damn the weather!:madman:dan wask said:Well judging by my back yard having an inch of standing water in some places,more rain steadily coming down, and people currently referring to it as mud shoe, I'm guessing not well. (I'm in MD not to far from snowshoe)
Keep us posted if you can guys, there's several of us that are/were planning the trip...:madman:david101372 said:Opening weekend completely sucked on Saturday morning but got really good for Sunday. However they didn't have rain for a couple weeks leading up to that and the ground soaked it up. I would guess this weekend is a washout. Also, if there is lightning anywhere close they shut the lifts down.
Damn...:madman: The only weekend all summer I get a 4 dayer it has to pull a Noah's flood.:sad: :bluefrown: :sad: :smallviolin:namaSSte said:J, hate to tell ya this but Snowshoe drains worse than just about anywhere you'll ride out this way. Ive heard many theories as to why but, in the end, all that matters is that drains very very poorly.
it sounds like bail time...........the roots took me out very fast.....going strait and then just downGman said:the problem is not that snowshoe doesnt drain but its very hard to ride when it does rain. the freeride side has a lot of roots that get extremely slippery when wet. Plus a lot of the structures/stunts get slippery as well. the downhill side can be better but its hard to ride the berms because they get like thick sloppy peanut butter.
For your sake and saved 1's, and d-money's, I hope it's dry and you guys come back with "shoulda went"'s. :thumbsup:Axis said:Ya I am still going as 3 of my friends still are too. It is gonna be fine SS is always wet, dry or someplace in between.
It is going to RAWK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
