Fresh snow to close out November

I think the Burlington weather bureau was caught a bit by surprise. Yesterday and last night, northern Vermont received more snow than expected in many places. Don't you love it when that happens?!

Here are some initial snow totals from the National Weather Service (check the date and times of the reports because it kept snowing into the night):

And they should update this graphic by around 10 a.m. this morning or so (check the date on the bottom):

This is a nice boost for the ski resorts who have been making as much snow as they can with recent cold temperatures. I plan to test out the new snow somewhere tomorrow!

Check the links on the <link internal-link>Vermont Ski Resort page to get their snow reports and lift and trail information for your favorite ski areas. Burke Mountain will join the list of open resorts this weekend (<link http: post tentative-opening-dates-for-2012-2013-vermont-ski-resorts _top external-link-new-window>see our post about opening dates).
