The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for our entire region, from 7AM this morning to 11AM Wednesday morning. We could see 18-24 inches of new snow by Wednesday, with the heaviest snow forecasted for Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Needless to say this will "make skiing great again" in the greater High Peaks region. By Wednesday morning skiing should be fantastic just about everywhere, however skiers should keep in mind that this new snow will be falling on trails that have either melted-out to bare ground or are covered with bulletproof hard-pack and/or water ice. Larger rocks and water bars were also exposed by the warm temps. Additionally, the meltdown we experienced at the end of February left many streams and drainages wide open. Use caution on downhills and on any trail segments with open drainages, some of which may be hidden after this storm.
We'll provide an update with more detailed information about accumulations and snow coverage on the local ski trails tomorrow morning. Stay tuned and travel safe.
