Instead of the predicted 3-5 inches, we'll have to settle for 2-3" of new snow. This doesn't really change the ski conditions as reported below. Forecast still calls for very cold temperatures on Saturday (high in the single digits) but somewhat warmer on Sunday. Thus all popular ski routes remain skiable with a bit of fresh powder on top.
No significant change from the conditions posted on 1/15 except temperatures have warmed to above freezing. We may experience a little rain before it cools off Sunday night and snows with now 2-4" predicted to fall by Monday afternoon. While we will miss most of the snow from this coastal storm, we will also miss most of the rain, so no real change in the conditions anticipated for the coming week. Update again on Monday when we know what actually happened.
We received about 2" of light snow overnight. Not enough to change the conditions as reported for the weekend, but then every little bit helps. Very cold today and tonight, but warming to the 20s by Thursday and staying in the high 20s to low 30s through the weekend. Maybe a bit more snow on Friday. Next update on Thursday when we know if there are any changes in the weekend forecast.
No real change from Saturday's report. A bit more new snow, but still the best skiing is at the groomed centers. The Paul Smith's VIC does report 2" of new snow and now all trails except Esker and Fox Run as open - with caution still on the downhills. A chance for as much as 3" of new snow tonight, then bitterly cold on Tuesday and then warming for the rest of the week. No snow in the forecast after tonight.
In Nordic skiing news, congratulations to Liz Stephen of East Montpelier, VT for her 5th place finish in the seven stage Tour de Ski. She was indeed the "best of the rest" finishing in 5th place just behind four Norwegians.
Trail conditions are updated frequently during the season, but always check local weather conditions as well before departing on your trip.
