Last gasp coming- forecasts calling for a foot+ in S. VT up through Sugarbush/MRG Friday to Saturday. Saturday will be nice, though snow will be heavy. Fat skis and snowboards will work nicely

    Interesting storm. In Central Mass they're talking about four to six inches of snow, possibly changing to sleet and rain, continuing into April 1.
    I remember something similar was predicted in 1997. But there was no changeover then. It started to snow on March 31 and when it ended on April 1 we had 33 inches of snow on the ground in Worcester. It's called the April Fool's Day blizzard. It wasn't a real blizzard, but it was a hell of a lot of snow.
    Chances of that happening again are pretty slim. But this is New England so we'll see.

    White Mountains will see at least 10" from this.  Hoping to ski on Monday in NH but not sure who is going to be open.  Thoughts?

    Might not be the last gasp, especially up north. Pattern remains favorable. April can deliver!

    Bubblecuffer, all the big White Mountain areas are still operating at least thru Easter Sun. and Mt. Sunapee. My picks would be anything along I-93 and of course Wildcat!

    From MRG weather blog: Same ideas on snowfall today and tonight only better. 6-12 near the base and 12-18 closer to the summit

    Thanks. I know they were closed last Monday and Tuesday, just hoping they don't do that next week.

    IMHO Wildcat has been doing that lately in the spring. Even on Patriots day when they have snow they've been closed. Call them

    Wildcat was allegedly getting ice while the valley and WV were getting snow.

    1" of sleet overnight here in Enfield with light snow falling this morning. Today's snow makes 7 straight months of snowfall in N CT.
