After two days of rain and temperatures in the 40s, most of the snow that we had below 2,500 feet is gone. Overnight we did pick up 2-3" of light snow, which as of 8 AM is being blown around by high winds. With no base in most areas, this isn't enough for any good skiing in the Lake Placid area. There is a base remaining at the Paul Smith's VIC, with 3" of new snow, which also means the Hays Brook and Fish Pond truck trails will be skiable with a bit of powder on well-frozen granular. Newcomb Lake Road will have similar conditions. Whiteface Highway may look good at the Toll House, but the winds will have blown snow off of much of the rest of the highway.
Friday evening report not any more optimistic. Van Hoevenberg only reports 5km skiable "at your own risk". Other local ski centers still closed. Still nothing but snow showers predicted for the weekend and upcoming week, so any recovery beyond what was reported above will be slow.
Avalanche Lake and Lake Colden will remain crossable as long as you give any inlets and outlets a wide berth. No other lake or river ice can be considered safe. By next weekend we may be able to get a positive report on the Opalescent River in Flowed Lands, but for now consider that crossing unsafe.
