More snowy surprises for central and northern Vermont

Thursday, December 29, 2011 at 09:15 AM

Ski resorts in the northern and central parts of Vermont picked up another round of unexpectedly high snowfall yesterday. Depending on location, it was on the order of 6 to 12 inches of snow! (Check the snow reports on our Vermont Ski Resorts page for details.)

Base areas first experienced some rain and then it changed to snow as the temperatures dropped through the day and, well, it just kept snowing! Today we have cold temperatures that are surely helping with snowmaking, as well.

I see snowflakes on the National Weather Service forecast. Keep it coming!Snowflake Bentley snowflake image

Speaking of snowflakes, the CBS Evening News did a piece last night on Snowflake Bentley, who lived in Jericho, Vermont (the tiny museum and gift shop in Jericho's Old Mill is within 20 minutes of Smugglers' Notch and Bolton Valley). He was the first to take high-quality photographs of snowflakes. One of his images is shown here, to the right. Check out the story on CBS News
