Mother Nature comes through…

… a bit late for the school break week. I’m sure some touring centers and ski towns wish that storm had come a week earlier. Better late than never though.

Summary

(I know, it’s a titmouse)

Cool and breezy today, but nice weather and fresh snow. Sounds like a bluebird day today! Tomorrow (Sunday) could be gusty in parts, and with snow showers, mainly in the Tug Hill and northern parts of New York and New England.

Minnewaska and Mohonk are both open for skiing, and within a 2+ hour drive from NYC.

Weather looks favorable overall for keeping the snow through the midweek, with a refresh of snow possible on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Conditions

BETA report as of today that the High Peaks got 10-14″ of new snow. Backcountry skiers rejoice.
