Photo(s) of the Week: SNOvember 2012

By the skin of its teeth, SNOvember is living up to its name again this season. It kicked off on Saturday 11/3 with a solid dusting of snow at the higher elevations across the Northeast, and by mid-week, another round of fresh snow under bluebird skies was luring greater numbers of hungry skiers to sample the thin-cover glisse potential. After turning on the snow guns last week, several resorts spun lifts last weekend, and the warm temps Sunday and Monday made for some very spring-like skiing conditions. A passing cold front Monday night blanketed the mountains with up to several inches of fresh snow Tuesday morning, treating skiers to another blast of early-season, binding-deep freshies. In the days ahead, sunshine and temps into the 40s will likely melt away the natural snow again on the best natural snow runs. Then again, it’s only SNOvember.
