That's correct. The entire area between Hart's Location (Crawford Notch) - St. J, VT - Jefferson - Berlin gets SOME, but the more intense stuff is usually quite localized to just about the snowmobile parking area at the start of the Lower Falls trail in Bretton Woods up Base Road and Rt 302 about 1/3 of the way down the Notch - not much past the 2 waterfalls as the elevation decreases significantly.
When speaking of upslope, though, one also needs to keep expectations in check. Down here in the valley, with a few exceptions when you get a foot to as much as 30" (I believe that was 2 years ago), upslope just means days on end of flurries that at times turn to moderate snow and gives you a couple of inches - usually 1 to 3, sometimes 5 or 6. It's a very similar pattern to what JSpin reports from his house. To find the higher amounts one needs to go up in elevation - and I never go up and measure what it's doing at 4000 feet (nor do I really care), unlike some of our VT friends who are in similar partterns but may give a perception that upslope means 6" every day. It doesn't - at least not here; if it did, instead of my 170" or so average, we would have 300".
In a normal winter, it adds up to a significant depth because there is little melt. This year, not so much - and I think that's where some of the difference (and disappointment) comes from. Our snowpack (at least, my snow stake) is currently at just over 6" and it's never gone higher than 14" if I remember correctly. That's pretty pathetic for end of January at 1500+ feet
