Northeast ski areas are finally rejoicing with upwards of four feet of new snow from a series of winter storms over the past few days. The best news is, another storm is knocking at the door!
While last week’s snow piled up deep in northern New England – Vermont’s Jay Peak pick up 52 inches and Stowe Mountain 51 inches – the latest storm is expected to drop more than a foot of fresh snow on southern areas.
“The Berkshires, Southern and Central Green, and White Mountains, as well as the southern Adirondacks all will pick up six to 12 inches by the looks of this latest storm,” Said SnoCountry’s Skiing Weatherman Herb Stevens. “Amounts will taper off across the far north.”
Resorts such as New York’s Gore Mountain, Vermont’s Killington, Okemo, and Mount Snow; and New Hampshire’s Gunstock, Ragged Mountain, Crotched, and Pat’s Peak, are all in the bulls eye of the latest storm as the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning, calling for snow throughout Thursday and into early Friday.
With more new snow on the way, this looks like the pick weekend of the year to grab the boards and enjoy some outstanding conditions. With the deepest base depths of the season, Thursday storm is likely to open up numerous off-piste and glade skiing trails. Below are photos from last weekend's storm.
