    First Snow of the Season

    Snowing out in Gorham at 1400 feet near Randolph line. Given the forecast for cold temps and timing, I expect the snow guns will be running hard this week, Wildcat had a few patches of manmade snow on Friday but expect Saturday made a dent in it.

    And a -30 wind chill at the summit this morning. Fall is so over.

    No accumulation at my elevation but my guess is down to 2500 feet on Howker Ridge trail.

    That is awesome! So psyched for snow. My son got a dusting in Wheelock Vermont at 1,700 feet.

    Might as well get this out of the way. Do you think we will need snowshoes after this?

    I do miss the well packed snowshoes trail, but don't miss the clowns who bareboot up it.

    Forget my previous post.

    Latest forecast (Monday, 11/14) says 6-12 for the Whites and mountains of western Maine on Wednesday.

    Woohoo!

    Hey Skiguy, you think Pinnacle will be is IN this weekend?

    I had a feeling the road closed overnight when there were no fresh tracks on the hike out.

    Not necessary on Mt. Blue, Me., but studs or at least having chains with you, is advisable if you want to drive all the way to the trailhead.
