Snow, sleet, rain and Catamount Trail coupons

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 10:20 AM

Well, elevation means everything this week in Vermont. While many towns and villages and base lodge areas have seen rain and sleet, there's been a mix of snow, sleet and rain up higher on the mountains.

Yesterday morning 2 to 5 inches of new snow were being reported at many Vermont ski areas. And this morning a couple more inches were being reported at the tops of some peaks. Middlebury Snow Bowl, Sugarbush, Stowe, Jay, Bolton, Burke and Killington were among those reporting snowflakes this morning.

But some ski areas are receiving quite a bit of rain as well. Bromley is not opening today because of it. Mount Snow had to do some lift de-icing this morning before opening.

Cooler nighttime temperatures will likely bring some more snow accumulation. 

I like the way the Sugarbush snow reporter put it this morning: “Two common Eastern snow phrases apply today: ‘net gain’ and ‘it's good for the base’.”
