I got about 6" new at my spot near Red Rocks Park. Everything is caked. Still some flakes lingering around. Looks like there was another 1" since I got home at 6:30 last night. 

In the light and with measurement I'm at 8" --- and it's snowing again.

Made it up to Killington around midnight. Roads not bad at all. Hit numerous snow showers. Light snow now and the mountain reporting 3" overnight after 4" yesterday. Lifts turn in 25 minutes we are headed to the base!

temps in low 20s feels good. 

Enjoy your stay and have fun on the hill!

1.5 overnight to bring the total to 6.0 at home. 

22 inches for the week and a hair over 70" on the season.

70 inches!  That's a solid winter.  37 inches here.

No complaints here.  My elevation has been just enough to help on some of the marginal events.

Sugarbush snow stake loop shows some solid accumulations this morning. 


I would say a good portion of that is wind blown. Radar looks good there, so some of it is fresh, however I heard it's also pretty windy.

8.5" here and it looks like it is about done with filtered sun appearing.

I mean BTV does average 80" for a reason, it has to snow at some point.  Nice stretch up there the past week.

Thanks!

Having an awesome day with light crowds and good natural snow. Taking a lunch break at condo then back out to ride until closing. Woods riding real nice along with ungroomed terrain. I even took a few jumps since the landing is so soft. 4 17 year old kids tearing it up.

Event totals: 8.7” Snow/0.41” L.E.

 

It definitely feels like the Northern Greens are getting a good shot of snow at the moment with the snowfall banked up against the spine.  I called the snowfall intensity “light” based on visibility, but it stacks up so fast with those huge upslope flakes.

Well, there was 1.4” of accumulation in the past hour, so it really is stacking at what would be a “heavy” snowfall rate.

That radar looks sick for Bolton Valley area and your place.  But the entire west slope like Underhill to Starksboro is getting lit up.

Yeah, it's pretty neat on the radar, you can see some pulses of moisture just smashing into the spine in the Winooski Valley area:

We picked up 1.0” in the 7 to 8 PM block, although that’s going on total depth so there’s probably some settling with the snow below.
