Backcountry Update – Nov 7: More Snow On Its Way?

After a fun week of skiing in the sun and snow in the Greens last week, last Thursday’s storm dropped 4-8″ of fresh snow up high, then some rain, and then it exited our region unwilling to cover up the rain-soaked snow with any significant fresh snow. Although there is now a great little base plastered to the mountains above 2500′, the snow surface has been quite crusty. Still, the skiing continues to be very fun – albeit bit technical and challenging. A storm that was previously forecasted to skirt by us on Monday/Tuesday is now looking more promising as a potential snow producer for many mountain areas of the northeast. With some luck, there will be some fun fresh tracks to be had Monday morning (binding deep?), before warmer temps and rain returns later in the day and on Tuesday. Milder daytime temps and sunshine could also produce a spring-like corn snow cycle later in the week. The image above was captured over the weekend in the Green Mountains of Vermont…

    Looking good Emily!
    Snow conditions here (Isafjordur, Iceland) are looking good and the lifts will probably open next week.
    Cheers! Runar
