Storm Grayson has landed! First off all, who gets to name these storms? Oooh! Just looked it up, apparently it’s the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Regardeless, it’s nuking today in NYC and it looks like the rest of the East Coast is getting pounded as well. With blizzard warnings throughout the weekend, there are some predictions that see the snowfall between 1 to 3 inches per hour. This has got to be good for the local mountains in VT, MA, NH, ME, CT and here in NY. There’s no doubt it’s been a bit of a slow start to the shred season, so let’s hope this glorious blast brings some much need snow to fill and pack in many of the moutains out here in the East.
Current Conditions at a few resorts.
9:10 am 01/04/18--Today is shaping up to be the best day of the week for skiing and riding at Killington - the forecast calls for temps in the teens and up to 7" of fresh snow. With temperatures headed back down for Friday and the weekend, playing hooky today is a solid plan - take advantage of free powder refills all day at Killington, home of the most open terrain in the East.
Snowing. 6 degrees. Forcast is to snow through tomorrow. Groomed. Powder.
Snowing. 18 degrees.
Not only are we in for a whopping 8-12" of fresh powder from today's storm, but we'll also have Ripsaw open for skiing and riding! It looks like it's going to be a great day on the hill that you don't want to miss!
The flakes will be falling all day into tonight and we'll be skiing and riding on 51 trails and 310 acres of open terrain - with lift service beginning at 9 a.m. Conditions have already been pretty amazing thanks to the cold weather we've had as of late, and some new snow on top is only going to help! However, the wind could be gusty at times today - so check back for lift updates.
Good morning everyone and welcome to the 45th day of the season. Today we will be open from 9:00AM to 4:00PM with 48 trails serviced by 6 lifts. Temperatures today are forecasted to be in the mid-teens with snowfall throughout the day. Surface conditions are expected to be powder on a machine groomed base of 24-36 inches.
When you wake up this morning it will be the calm before the storm. Snow is expected to fall all day today and the entire state of Maine is waiting anxiously to see exactly how much we will get. Up here we are calling it the Loaf Cyclone as we strap on our gear and hit the slopes for some fresh powder that will start to drop sometime after 9am.
Today we can expect temps to be between 18-22 at the base and 15-19 at the summit. Very manageable, but be prepared for some windy weather at the top of the mountain with gusts coming from the northeast.
Wax up and get out there! Send us some photos. Enjoy!
