From Phil Hawkes-Teeter, course setter:
I went to Pineridge Thursday, and the skiing was actually pretty decent. But, I am postponing the event anyway.
It has been raining off-and-on, and also been quite warm, and I could already see signs of the existing snow deteriorating (open water, rocks, the corduroy crossing the marsh was almost bare). The snow also has a high water content and could turn very icy. Naturally, now that I have decided to postpone, it is likely to be great on Saturday.
So, the new event date is Saturday, February 18. General plans remain the same (starts 10-Noon).
