Exclusive photos and ski report from Mt. Washington ski valley

Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 18, 2010 7:24 am

We are midway through vacation week and all is well in Mt. Washington Valley. Tuesday’s storm didn’t deliver the accumulation we hoped for but the area had 1-3 inches of snowfall overnight to freshen things up and the slopes and trails are busy with skiers and riders.
