Thanks to fresh snow falling across the highest elevations of the Northeast on Sunday night, snow sliders enjoyed some of their first turns of the season on Monday. And while Old Man Winter welcomed us back with only a few inches of snow at the highest elevations (4-6″ atop the porch railing of a cabin [...]
The last couple of weather fronts and rain storms have ushered in the beautiful fall season in classic form. It’s amazing how Mother Nature, with the flick of a her switch, can take us out of a distinctly summery weather pattern right into the cooler, crispier and breezier days of fall. At least a few [...]
Since New Hampshire’s Mt. Washington picked up its first snowflakes of the season a few days ago, we’ve been extra motivated to squeeze in some trail running this week. Be it the rock and stream hopping, the hill climbs, or the quick foot work as you whip through the beautiful hardwood forest, trail running is [...]
10/31 UPDATE (Look below for a few more photos from skiing in central VT over the weekend. The historic October snowstorm produced over two feet of snow in some parts of Western MA and southern NH. Closer to home here in central VT, we picked up a bit less than that, but the skiing was [...]
Our good buddy OLD MAN WINTER is back! He’s been throwing snow at us since Wednesday in many mountain areas of the northeast, and currently, the mountains of southern Vermont are likely scoring the deepest snows in the region, with more than 6-8″ falling in the Killington/Pico zone. Although the snowfall close to home in [...]
With snow falling in the high elevations of the White Mountains as we write this, and with reports of mountaintop snowflakes streaming in over the weekend (thanks to Dave Bouchard for the first-hand evidence from the Green Mountain spine on Sunday morning), it’s likely just a matter of days before at least a few of [...]
Although we’ve been getting by with some seriously thin, yet skiable snow conditions this November (and still to bottom – til yesterday!), it is worth taking a moment to reflect on how great the skiing in November can really be here in the northeast… Here’s a snap from mid November a few year’s back. Enjoy! [...]
Maybe it’s because a thin snow pack is all we have to work with sometimes in the northeast. Or perhaps it has to do with those “thin cover” signs we’d come across on the ski hill as kids…and the great fun we’d have leaving the adults behind while we jumped dirt patches and straight-lined large [...]
On Monday (11/8), while rain, sleet and freezing rain cancelled schools in the valleys, a thin layer of fresh “snow” in the mountains took the edge off the weekend’s crust at all but the highest elevations.
After one of the snowiest October’s on record for the higher elevations of the northeast, Snovember has already proven itself as another great month to ski in the northeast this season. With some colder air settling over the region this weekend, and the possibility for some fresh flakes tonight, the snow pack – which was [...]
Snow goblins and ghosts – We see them often in the mountains. This one seems to be a rather friendly one… Is it Ullr- the Norse God of Snow in disguise? Could it be smiling because it was snowing again in the mountains of the northeast this weekend? Happy Halloween!
Oct 21, 2010 – Although you might have had to ski it to believe it, the skiing in the days following last weekend’s nor’easter has been beautiful and utterly spring like. With increasingly mild days in the valleys, and crispy cool nights, the snow’s been transforming to a near-perfect corn snow in the mountains – [...]
