About 5" at closing bell at Killington today and it was still coming down heavily.  Looks like they'll do great for this storm.  Mix line was about 10 miles north of Brattleboro on the drive home at 7PM.

It is just crushing snow this morning.  5" in 24 hours at the base as of 5:30am but we picked up another 1" in 30 minutes and it continues to nuke with the cold front.

I think 5" will do it for me.  Like PF was saying in the other thread, a nice dense snow.  Trees are caked. Looks like we add to it this Wednesday.  Winter is back after a brief hiatus.

6" at home.  I blame the recent snow drought on my back.  I threw it out in a coughing fit three weeks ago and Mother Nature was just trying to help me out.  Finally close to 100% again, so bring it on!

4" will do it here. Was expecting a bit more, but won't complain. Just 1.1 more would have gotten me to 100 for the season lol... Should do it on Wednesday or even today if the upslope doesn't shut off. Wet sticky snow after the initial powdery stuff, trees are plastered. Light snow at the moment

We did alright here too. I just wish the wind didn't blast it out of the trees because it looked real nice. I know it is hard to get a snow here where that doesn't happen. It is nice to see it though!

What’s up with the 19” at Jay? That seems suspect even by their standards!

I'm a passenger in a car right now and we're driving from my house in the Plymouth area down to Manchester. Just went through about 10 miles of really heavy snow in the Tilton area with quarter mile or less visibility and cars off the road. Snow is much lighter now as we head towards Concord heading south.

The sun is in and out here in Burlington, but I can see the flakes are still chugging along on the spine and at the house via radar and the web cam:

The Winter Storm Watches from yesterday have been converted to Winter Storm Warning in all of Vermont now ahead of this next system, which is considered impactful enough to earn the name Winter Storm Liam.  The accumulations map from yesterday has been tweaked a bit, but it’s representing generally 8-12” accumulation shading throughout the state with 8-10” accumulations highlighted at various sites.  The point forecast for our site indicates the potential for 6-12” of accumulation.

With our recent storm I stopped in at Bolton Valley for some turns yesterday morning, so I can pass along some snow updates from Timberline.  There was a nice skin track in place on Twice as Nice as usual, and I frequently checked the depths of the powder along my ascent.  Wind had pushed the snow around a bit, but I generally found depths of 5 to 8 inches above the subsurface with spot amounts up to 10 inches near the Timberline Mid Station.

 

My descent yielded some excellent turns.  Turns were bottomless, even on much of the Spell Binder headwall, aside from a few contacts with the subsurface here and there.  I even found protected spots with depths of over a foot.  I’ve added a couple of shots from the tour below:
