Snowridge – Fri. 2/1/13

Cornhead and I skied Snowridge today. Snowridge is located in Turin NY on the Tug Hill Plateau about 1.5 hours northeast of Syracuse NY. They often get decent dumpings of Lake effects snow off of Lake Ontario. Took about 3 hrs. from Binghamton. Snowed hard from Syracuse to Turin where Snowridge is located. While on the short stretch of NY Thruway saw a car in the opposite lanes go into a massive power slide and slide down into the median. Looked like the guy may have been able to drive it out. Went through Rome NY and Booneville. Seems like lots of snowmobiles in Booneville.

Got at Snowridge about 9:10 am and they opened the base lodge at 9:30. Lifts start at 10 am on weekdays. If you present a seasons pass from a New York ski area you get a lift ticket for $15. (normal rate for a weekday is $21 for 6 hours and $37 for a weekend ticket). They had 13" of fresh fluffy powder. Takes 5 minutes up the lift and about 2 minutes down the 500 ft. vertical. Did a lot of runs.

Cornhead was talking to a family that came down from Canada at lunch break. Also talked to a guy from Albany who tries to ski Snowridge after they get a dumping of lake effect snow from Lake Ontario.
