It definitely feels like winter this morning… it snowed. There is some Light snow on Wednesday morning, but it is snowing. Ski areas in NY and Vermont received about 4” to 6” of snow during Monday night and Tuesday morning from Goliath. Combine that with the efforts of the snow makers who made snow until the temperature went above freezing.

 

Most ski areas have gotten some great and expanded coverage across the mountain.

Today’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies throughout the day. Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 34 there could be some wind.

At Mount Snow they will be skiing and riding on 83 acres across ten trails including Canyon, Cascade, Cooper’s Junction, Deer Run, Lower Exhibition, Launch Pad, Little John, Long John, Somerset Road, and The Gulch. With the exception of Somerset Road, our grooming team hit every open trail in order to smooth everything out and give you the best possible snow surface. Our Park Crew worked hard last night in order to give The Gulch a fresh rebuild. It now has an impressive 22 features for you to hit. Come see why Carinthia Parks are consistently rated #1 in the East.

The Bluebird Express, Canyon Express, Tumbleweed, Seasons, Apollo, Gemini, Discovery Shuttle, and Heavy Metal are scheduled to spin from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. today. Lifts are open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekends/holidays and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays.

At Okemo Mountain Resort they received 3 – 5 inches of natural snow on top of several days of snow making,

They will be skiing and riding on 27 trails with 12 lifts turning at 8 a.m. having added Nor’easter, Sweet Solitude and Village Run to our list of open trails.

Please note: There may have some lift delays today due to icing, so check back here for the latest updates.

Since we are still early season and still some thin cover, be aware that some bare/thin spots, rocks, decreased trail width in some areas, water bars, snowmaking equipment, etc… so stay safe and ski or ride with caution.

New Year’s Eve is just a day away, so make your plans to celebrate at a ski area! Many areas have Torchlight Parade & Fireworks shows and other specials going on You can celebrate the New Year in Mount Snow at the Grand Summit Hotel’s NYE Dinner & Dance Party or with the sounds of Sugarfoot & the Brass Kickin’ Horns at the Snow Barn.

At Okemo, you can celebrate a family new year with an early start at the Roundhouse in Jackson Gore Village.  Midnight arrives early for friends and family enjoying a whole host of activities. Magic show, wagon rides, party hat decorating, bingo games and trivia. Families can ring in the New Year early with a DJ dance party and still get the kids to bed in time for a full day on the slopes the next day. Calvin will be making an appearance and leading the kids in some fun party games. Balloons, noisemakers, photo both, Dux the balloon man, and fireworks add to the New Year celebration, complete with a kid’s dinner party including pizza, mac and cheese and a few other chief selections in the Roundhouse at Jackson Gore.

  1. Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to
    make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
