Thanksgiving week starts with good snowmaking temps — wintry mix to follow

Snowmaking at Sleepy Hollow cross-country center

Snowmakers are earning their keep these recent cold days and nights. Resorts are pumping out a lot of snow in anticipation of Thanksgiving weekend, as well as some December opening days. (<link http: www.skimaven.com post when-do-vermont-ski-resorts-open-1 _top external-link-new-window>Who's open? Check here.)

It sounds like Mother Nature will get into the act on Tuesday night and Wednesday, with a wintry mix that should include rain, sleet and snow accumulation. We'll see how it pans out.

Even a few Nordic ski centers are making the most of snowmaking to open to skiers. Craftsbury and Rikert Nordic Centers are open for limited skiing due to some snowmaking. Snowmaking is now going on at Sleepy Hollow and Trapp Family Lodge. Sleepy Hollow hopes to open the afternoon of November 26 and Trapps on November 28 (maybe Nov. 27). Very limited terrain, of course.
