NOAA has issued Winter Storm Watches and Winter Weather Advisories across northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire today.

3-6″ of snow is forecast along with temperatures as low as -25ºF.  This could be a good thing, or it could cause the gnarliest ‘dust on crust’ conditions imaginable since it’s hot and wet in Vermont today.

It’s been a rough year for the East Coast this year.  Every inch of snow helps.

Check out their report from today:

“Today’s balmy and wet conditions rendered us some surprisingly decent, soft turns up on the hill today. Despite some morning rain the “snow pack” is miraculously hanging in there but it is getting increasingly thin. On Tuesday for Town Meeting Day (all kids ski free – BTW) we PLAN on enjoying skiing on nearly all of our legendary main mountain trails serviced by 3 of our 5 lifts.  That being said temperatures are supposed to plummet overnight and that may leave us in a precarious position in terms of being able to open up the main mountain on Tuesday.  We certainly feel like we will be able to keep the Practice Slope lift running for the race scheduled. The issue right now is that if skiing surfaces do “solidify” with colder temps then we will need to do some grooming and the fact of the matter is that we are running out of snow for the cats to work with. We strongly encourage you to check for updates in the morning to see what we will be able to have open for skiing. Want to see how it looks right now on General Stark Mountain? ” – Mad River Glen, VT today
