Heavy snow falls on Vermont — good for base-building

As of Wednesday morning, we're part way through a major winter storm in Vermont. It has brought wet, heavy snow that will help with building a base on which to ski — whether you ski at resorts, in the backcountry or at Nordic centers.

Here's an image from the National Weather Service that forecasts the total storm snowfall through 1 a.m. on Thursday. Don't you love seeing double digits!?! <link http: www.weather.gov btv snow_info external-link-new-window external link in new>Click here to see the updated NWS snow information and graphics.

Snow in Vermont

This morning the alpine ski resorts were reporting between 6 and 14 inches of snow at their higher elevations. And more snow and mixed precipitation was expected today.

Thanks, Mother Nature!

Note: With this heavy snow and mixed precip, some resorts are having trouble getting lifts open this morning. Check their <link internal-link internal link in current>snow reports before you head out!
