Anyone have a good summary of what the Euro shows for next week in the MWV / Ski Areas?

I'm heading up there for a long weekend next weekend and starting to get stoked.  GFS looks OK to me - ends up on the warm side of the low pressure but not before a decent snowfall.  Weenie snow maps seem out of whack with the depicted solution - but that's why they are weenie maps.

Euro was mostly snow up in that area. Does eventually warm aloft but probably never above freezing at the surface...maybe briefly when it mixes out at fropa.

Is this one of those sneaky 12"+ events for the summits? I have been following closely to see if this was forecasted?

Nah - you're loving it.  When that trail sign gets buried, THEN it will have gotten out of hand.

We've hit warning criteria in the parking lots...easy 8" at the base.  Going to check the stake again, I'd bet 14" or so at 3,000ft.

Like eyewall said just crushing... 2"/hr right now.

16.5" storm total at 3,000ft so far.

9" through 9am and another 7.5" through 2pm.

Old school

This is the classic "foo foo fluff"....but it pounded.  Feels like being in a low-grade lake effect band with consistent 1-2"/hr through 1-2pm. 

After all the denser snow we saw last week from upslope, this was the real deal Champlain Powder as people call it.  I'd bet this 17" will settle out to 12" or so in undisturbed areas by like tomorrow afternoon.  Perfect for skiing though when you already have a great base.

Well there was no better cure for my recent melt than being on the slope today. Pics later. Even the CPV got a little. Looks like a fresh 2-3 inches in Essex and Williston.

Looks like around 3" in town here...ha it is a ridiculous gradient.

My 1,500ft plot hit 30" on the ground today...compared to like 10-11" here at home.

Some of the biggest dendrites I've ever seen.

Not aggregates but just cold massive snow growth at like 15 degrees.

It has to be so hard to get flakes this size without being aggregates at like 32F.

This was during one of the 3"/hr bursts.

It's like someone tore up a bunch of toilet paper and is just dropping it from the skies.
