Despite Dan Shaughnessy’s claim today that the “Sox are the only folks having a worse winter than New England ski resorts,” the truth is, skiing a riding conditions have improved dramatically over the past 10 days.
Last week’s snow was a bounty for the resorts leading up to the long weekend, and last night, a number of spots saw significant accumulation heading into what should be another storm tomorrow.
Here are some of the reported overnight accumulations:
Bolton Valley: 4-6 inches
Smugglers’ Notch Resort: 5-6 inches
Stowe Mountain Resort: 5-7 inches
Sugarbush: 4 inches (Currently running on nearly 100 percent of its trails – or 97.29729 percent as the resort tweeted this morning.)
Attitash: 8 inches
Wildcat: 8 inches
Black Mountain: 9 inches
Cannon: 6 inches
Loon: 6 inches
Cranmore: 6 inches
Sunday River: 8 inches
Sugarloaf: 6-8 inches
Saddleback: 8 inches
Locally, Wachusett saw three inches overnight, and is expecting up to 6 more after tomorrow’s storm. Stay tuned on that one, but early forecasts seems to be projecting more of a bounty for southern New England than the mountains to the north.
Not bad, right? Let’s just hope there’s not an epic season-ending collapse looming down the road – like one team which we won’t mention.
