Get it done before Sunday

This post contains section links to Conditions and Forecast.


It may be winter conditions up north today, but by Saturday it will be spring skiing, and that’s some of the best kind there is. Warmer weather trending with rain arriving late Saturday or early Sunday.

Notchview and Prospect Mountain are still good, as are some areas up in the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. The Osceola twins in the Tug Hill region probably have the best conditions of all.

Starting feel like the tail end of the season already, even though there’s a month to go, and there’s still good skiing to be had within a four hour drive of NYC. Carpe ski’em.


Hit up ‘State of the touring centers‘ or in the menu above for reported conditions as of today. Judicious reading between the lines of Trailhub, website trail conditions, and weather; plus a bit of grading on the curve. Snow depth graphic below:

Daytime temperatures on a rising trend through to Sunday, when high temps downstate will get to the mid-60s, and the high-40s in the far north, even to the mid-50s in the valley areas of northern New England.

Temperatures then trend down in the first part of next week, reaching the low- to mid-50s in the NYC metro area, and low- to mid-30s in the far north on Tuesday.

Starting on Saturday we will be looking at two or more systems bringing precipitation to the northeast. In the afternoon a mix of rain and snow will begin in central New York, and generally across the northeast overnight into Sunday. Snow will become rain in New York, and wintry mix in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Precipitation will continue through Sunday, Monday, and much of Tuesday, flipping back and forth in some areas between rain and wintry mix, or wintry mix and snow. Areas of New York south of the northern Catskills and southern New England will see mostly rain. Precipitation will end Tuesday evening, with the exception of some lake effect snow in the far north of New York and New England.
