Yet another storm brought more snow to Boston and the coastline than the ski hills. Even though "Saturn" was not a huge snow event in the mountains, ski resorts are in fine shape heading into this weekend, having received several dustings of snow this week. This record ski season just keeps going and snowing. Trail counts in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Mass are near perfect and surface conditions are truly packed powder.
Saturday's forecast is for sunshine on the slopes, as spring marches closer. Remember to spring your clocks forward Sunday at 2am, and get out and enjoy the skiing and riding this weekend.
