Hi Folks,

Santa brought us a great ice season and you should get yourself up here ASAP to enjoy it. It really doesn't get a whole lot better than this! I could stop there, and probably I should. No time this week for a major-league Report. I'm sure you can understand the entire family-holiday-thing… We were in Philly for the actual holiday and didn't get back until Wednesday night. Then there has been all kinds stuff to catch up with. Not the least of which was the remnants of a snowstorm and a cat who was lefty themselves! I'm not really sure which was worse BTW. [grin]

In any event I did manage to run up to Frankenstein to check on the state of the ice for you folks. In case you hadn't heard, it's gone from OK to excellent in 1 week. Pretty much everything, everywhere I looked was good ice. Thursday morning and there were people everywhere! I don't see how more folks could have fit on Cinema Gully this morning and at Frankenstein I spotted simultaneous parties on Dropline, Last Exit and Welcome To The Machine! I suppose that says it all.
Ice Conditions Report:
Selected Ice Conditions effective March 23, 2017
The ice is still pretty good right now, and even great in some places. As long as we don't get a big rain, or week of 50 degree daze, I would guess we should have this plus another week of climbable ice in the shady spots in the lower elevations. That would put us into April 1st, and these daze I would be very surprised if you could climb down here after that. But it's been an interesting season, so I suppose anything is possible.
