Catskill Winter Storm Warning
Mar 10, 2023 at 10:33 am #3775400
So last week, unfortunately I missed it, 10-12 inches snow in the Catskills.. tonight into tomorrow.. another 5 – 8 inches of snow.. BUT.. Sunday night thru Monday all day and night, into Tuesday.. more.. another 10 – 13 inches, with 25-30 mph winds howling thru.. just perfect for me!! I am not missing this banger!! Gonna head up there Sunday morning, and do a nice snow shoe in, up a small mountain.. where we headed about 2 weeks ago.. and making camp just before this last storm hammers in.. ride it out untill Tuesday morning.. then snow shoe out and down the mountain.. where I will be the luckiest guy in town and get to dig and shovel my car out at the trail head!! This time, again… we will attempt to camp up near the top if this small mountain.. I will be packing the BD Hilight 3p with Vestibule.. so luxury is my option, no doubt. Hopefully this time we get nailed with the snow, as last time we only got the lowest expected..Mar 10, 2023 at 10:37 am #3775402Mar 10, 2023 at 2:42 pm #3775419

Stay safe and have fun. Looking forward to hearing how the Hilight works out in those conditions.Mar 15, 2023 at 7:03 am #3775805
Ended up getting 2 – 3 feet of snow on top of existing 1.5 foot already there.. I posted info about the tent in new post.. Black Diamond Hilight series tents..
