Storm gives areas major boost

You have to love this note made by NECN’s Matt Noyes on Twitter: “Global ski area snow last 48 hrs? Alyeska AK #1 at 57″, @bretton_woods 2nd at 18″. Literally the world is looking on in envy.”

And so, the New England ski season gets a huge boost thanks to the recent Nor’easter, which dropped more than a foot of precipitation on snow-starved resorts in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Bretton Woods went from one trail open mid-week to 27 today. Sugarloaf decided yesterday it had received enough (over a foot at elevation) to open today (three trails). Other spots, including Wildcat and Jay Peak (20 inches at the summit) received nice base-builders in anticipation of next weekend’s openings.

Slowly but surely…
