Snow comes to Vermont—especially in the higher peaks!

Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 10:22 AM

Now this is more like it.

I'd like to welcome winter to Vermont. Oh, how we've missed you!

This morning Vermont ski resorts are celebrating new snow and the return of seasonably cold temperatures on their peaks. The word is that the new snow is heavy and wet, but that sounds like the start of a great base to me.

The resorts are also reporting that snowmaking is underway again as temperatures have dropped. Several resorts are targeting to open their lifts by the weekend of December 5. (Related post: "When do Vermont ski areas open?")

Here are some of Vermont's snowfall reports as of this morning:

10 inches as of 6am in Jay, Vermont, at Route 105

11 inches in Walden, Vt., as of 7 a.m. at 2,250 feet elevation

10-12 inches or more reported at summits of Smugglers' Notch, Stowe, Killington, Stratton, Jay Peak ski resorts

7 inches reported at Prospect Nordic Center in Woodford, Vt.

1 inch at Magic Mountain in Londonderry, Vt.
