Weather in the Northeastern US can cause bands of snow to dump lots in one place, and little in another. Latitude has a minor influence; what seems to matter is the local terrain and elevation, and whether a touring center or park is fortuitously located where moisture-laden air (usually coming up the coast and circulating counter-clockwise) hits cold air (usually from the North or West).
This week, middle VT got lucky. The Tug Hill plateau also benefitted from lake effect snowfall.
