The snowstorm that is currently hitting Vermont has been most ferocious in the northern part of the Green Mountains. (It's about time! Several of the storms this season favored southern Vermont!)

Here's what Vermont ski resorts are reporting for snowfalls via social media as of 7 and 8 am Monday morning. And it's still snowing in northern Vermont.

Note: Check with the resort before you drive there. Some are indicating late openings or ice (southern Vermont) and weather-affected lift operations.

Mount Snow
"We have a significant amount of ice at summit."

Okemo Mountain
"3-4" of snow/sleet overnight. Weather will impact lift and trail operations."

Pico Mountain
"Nine inches of (heavy) snow overnight and it's still snowing!"

Killington Resort
"Weather will impact lift and trail openings for Monday morning."

Mad River Glen
"POWDER DAY! 12-16" down and dumping profusely!"

Bolton Valley
"15-17 inches. . . so far. Snow continues to pound down outside."

2 feet of snow

Smugglers' Notch
"24 inches new snow & another 4-6" expected today. Delayed opening as lifts are shoveled out, grooming is ongoing."

Jay Peak
"Over 2 feet of snow"
