Another foot between now and the weekend? At the Gunks? I think phlan you are reading optimisticweather.com again. Not that there's anything wrong with that... sorta.

Friends from up at Plattekill and Hunter mtn ski areas report powder early on Wed morning, then the same as throughout the valley, sleet, freezing rain, then just rain. Parking lot to summit. There is now a thick layer of ice over powder. Fun, fun, fun. Breakable crust or unbreakable boiler plate. It's going to take a couple of passes of the groomer to fix this around Minne and Mohonk.

Folks - I found a Mid Hudson x-c skiing group on Yahoo, and they frequently correspond about skiing conditions at the various places in the area.

well, it was interesting today. a little icier than I had thought, but pretty good for skating. the downhills were a bit weird. as the day went on it got better, due to the grooming equipment being run over the same trails several times. this eventually got things milled up pretty well. the result is a mix of icy granular and powder. like I said, best for skating. don't even try minnewaska right now, it's probably pretty bad. I parked at the mohonk gatehouse and skied all afternoon on the hotel side and did not go out the other way, but it should be good out the bonticou loop and spring farm area as well.
