Its a start...East Cam is good...West Cam not so much

No south ridge base cam? White Heat? Jordan? 

Like you said it's a start.  Here's to hoping more will follow!!

At the very least these 2 cams will be able to give a good indication of how hard the wind is blowing! 

I like the format. Very cool. I agree, a SouthRidge camera is useful, but it seems the old one is still there (don't know of a direct link, but you can see it from weather bug https://www.weatherbug.com/weather-camera/?cam=NWRYS).  The utility of webcams pointing at the lift lines is nice, but from a marketing perspective, it probably has a negative affect (the times when you look at the SR webCam and decided to stay far away from SouthRidge because the lines are up the mountain).

You easily see now when the Chondi cabins are off - like right now.  Still.  What's up with that?

No clue on Chondy cabins, all weekend no cabins 

Watch the time lapse for both cameras - trees were rocking quite a bit yesterday.  Also interesting to follow Ops lights around after hours.

it probably saved the lift from wind hold yesterday.

I noticed the usual suspects (A,J,WH) were down at some point yesterday from wind.

I am sorry, SR has more wind holds than all other mountains in the country.   Suggestion, put a wind fence across area by NP to prevent wind.  Its Maine, its the mountains, there is wind.

I know some folks who would disagree

On the list of improvements were are not getting this one ranks high

Is this new this year?  For the last 13 years, I have been switching between SR and SL for the NH vacation break. In all of those years, there were minimal Sunday River wind holds, but Sugarloaf always had holds. This year, I have been at SR almost every weekend since opening and there has been non stop wind holds.  I think they are just being cautious, but I agree, they need to invest in something to prevent wind hold from crippling the mountain.

On the bright side, it looks like winds will be minimal during the storm tomorrow (then they pick up for Thursday, hopefully not too bad).

Other than SL, I know of no other mountain w this many wind holds.  You were with me, how many lifts where shut down in MT and WY for wind?  Exactly zero.   Either SR is soft or our wind trumps all others....the Chondy is in the shadows of Mt Washington, not on Mt. Washington

CNR, IMO far worse this year than any of the (13) years we have been full time up at SR.
