Winter Has Arrived at Mount Snow: More than 17 Inches of Fresh Powder

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 14, 2012 2:15 pm

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Winter has FINNALLY arrived at Mount Snow with more than 17” fresh powder in the past 48 hours! Southern Vermont has gotten hit by the brunt of not one, but TWO winter storm systems that passed through New England starting this past Thursday morning. The storms have collectively dumped over a foot and a half of new fluffy white powder.

The opening line is taken from a poem called “Jabberwocky” which of course taken from Lewis Carroll’s 1872 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, a sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Skiers and snowboarder gearing up for the start of their MLK weekend at Mount Snow had to of thought they woke up in a dream world when setting off to hit the slopes today.

As of Wednesday, Mount Snow had 32 trails available with open terrain spanning over 243 acres. Thanks to the new snow they now have 50 trails and more than 312 skiable acres covered with the fresh stuff and ready to be shredded upon.

We all know this has been a difficult winter for new snowfall, ever since the early October storms out west and some sparadoc dusting in certain regions throughout the nation back in December there has been very little additional precipitation. In fact, this is the first major winter storm to hit the Green Mountains of Vermont since the ski season began for them in December!

Mount Snow has been, and will continue to take advantage of every opportunity to fire up their state-of-the-art snowmaking operations to expand their terrain even further over the next few days.
