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 [...]
After struggling to keep Superstorm Sandy from interfering with the lives of millions in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions (and dumping historic amounts of snowfall over the Central Appalachians in his attempt), Old Man Winter was finally able to shoe Sandy away this weekend. He also had enough energy remaining to deliver several inches of [...]
We are thankful at AdventureSkier for our good health and friends and families and our community; for the beauty and magic of the world in which we live; for the simple things that you don’t need to buy; for the warmth of the sun and the freshness of the wind. We are thankful for those [...]
A winter storm warning is now in effect through Wednesday for much of the north country – including the Adirondacks heading east into Maine – and some of the luckiest locales may pick up close to two feet! of snow by the time this storm moves out on Thursday morning. And while our snow forecast [...]
Although at least a few skiers managed to squeek in a few exciting runs on natural snow last weekend, Old Man Winter is apparently in no great hurry to get on with things. And that’s just fine. Meanwhile, the mountain bike trails continue to be relatively dry; there’s still wood lying around for 2012-13 that [...]
We didn’t quite make out with the November snow of our dreams this past weekend in the northeast, but Friday’s mountain snows made for some genuinely fun thin-cover skiing. A solid dusting to nearly 2″ fell across the higher elevations Friday and Friday night, just enough to keep at least some of us off our [...]
After a round of some really fun skiing through the Halloween period, some nice warm weather has all but wiped out our natural snow pack for the time being. And until Old Man Winter comes back around and settles in for a few good months, we have images like this to remind us of how [...]
“Damaging Winds” is the current forecast for the summit of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington today and tomorrow. There’s nothing like a 145mph wind gust to start off your day in late November! This cold, northwesterly flow of air comes in advance of another moisture-laden, low-pressure system that should start to drop some frozen precip (snow?) [...]
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! [...]
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!
