Glenn Ortley took a recon trip into Ricketts Glen this past weekend to determine the ice conditions. Please check the conditions pics he has posted below. On the left are the current conditions (2/5/2012), on the right are pics he took from the same time last year (2/12/2011).

Not good folks. I am thinking that this season is going to be a washout for Pennsylvania.





February 5, 2012 - Roadside Gully, Lock Haven

by Dave Seasholtz Sun, February 05 2012 15:30

Dismal conditions at Lock Haven after the extremly warm temperatures we experienced last week. Here are two pics of Roadside Gully along Rt 120 from Sunday 2/5/12. All ice is gone on the approach gully and the first two steep tiers. The only ice that is hanging on is on Glass Menangerie on the third tier. From the road it looks like it barely touches down and appears to be poorly bonded. I am betting it will be on the road by next weekend. No ice was visible when looking across the river at the Gemini Gullies, so I saw no reason to investigte any further there, or at the Hidden Amphitheater.  Not looking good.
