Vermont's mountains to get first snow this weekend?

Posted Friday, October 15, 2010
— Fall & early season, Mt. Mansfield, Ascutney, Jay Peak, Sugarbush, Killington, Mad River Glen

Are you ready for this? The National Weather Service reports that the higher peaks in Vermont may receive a few inches of snow, which may start falling on Friday!

Check out the mountain forecast here: <link http: btv mountain> The mountain forecast page is valid for peaks over 3,000 feet.Mountain point forecast

On that site you'll also see a map with what they are calling a "mountain point" forecast. It's still in test mode, but seems to work pretty well. You can click to keep track of what's happening on Camel's Hump, Jay Peak, Mount Ascutney and other big daddies including Mount Mansfield.

We've still got some gorgeous fall foliage going on in northern Vermont, so some snow-sprinkled peaks could make for an incredible scene.

It's mid-October, but it's time to start digging out my winter clothes and assessing the ski gear! Yippee!
