Friday evening update:
There is skiable snow on the Whiteface Highway starting two-1/2 miles up at about 3,500 feet. Snow depth at the top of the highway (4,500 feet) is over one foot, and that should "translate" to snow depth at similar elevations in the High Peaks. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny, so the snow line will melt back progressively during the weekend. Even so, Sunday snow depths will still be significant at 4,000 feet. Plan your hike or ski accordingly. Photo of snow (and snowman on picnic table) at 3,500 feet below.
