Get it while it’s frozen

Ski trail at Viking Nordic Jan. 10

Forecast for the Northeastern US is for below-freezing daytime temps until midweek, and no snow. The storm currently due to hit the mid-Atlantic region with snow isn’t expected to make it any further than the PA-NJ border.

The skiing is as good as it gets, even if it could be closer. Our image of the day is from Viking Nordic in Londonderry VT, Jan. 10.

What a difference a day makes

With a refreshing snowfall on Wednesday, some places that were closed are now open, and areas with marginal conditions are now having great trails and tracks. It’s just in time for the weekend, which is going to be cold, so that snow is staying!

Today’s snowy images are from Prospect Mountain and Canterbury Farms- unlike Notchview, Canterbury didn’t have quite enough snow to open. However, as you can see, conditions at Prospect are terrific. Both Prospect Mountain and Notchview are just a few hours’ drive from NYC, within long-day-trip distance. Check the List of touring centers (also in the menu above) for contact info and website links.

You can also go to State of the touring centers (also in menu above) for a Google Map showing skiability of each area, with notes and contact info.

I’ll be away next week, so no updates. Time to wax those skis!
