Exclusive photos from Mt. Washington ski area

Greetings from Mt. Washington Valley, NH,

Mt. Washington Valley ski resorts are reporting 4 – 10 inches of fresh powder accumulating since Saturday.  According to Ryan Knapp, Staff Meteorologist at Mount Washington Observatory, Tuesday a weak low will skirt southern counties of the state bringing an inch or two of new snowfall with the mountains seeing a trace to an inch of additional snow. Wednesday will see the upper level low exiting as high pressure builds in over the northeast for the remainder of the week. This Canadian high pressure will allow for sunny skies but temperatures will be cold as northern air is pushed in, making for ideal snowmaking temps as Mt Washington Valley ski resorts continue to build base depths.
