It’s been a weird winter for the northeast and things are only getting weirder.
While snowmaking is usually a practice that starts in October and ends in January, the snowmakers at Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine are firing up the snow guns in a last ditch effort to extend their seasons and provide a quality product to their skiers and snowboarders.
Sugarloaf started off strong on Sunday with polar temperatures allowing for productive snowmaking efforts and Sunday River began blowing snow during the early morning hours on Monday.
So far it looks as though temperatures should remain cold enough to make snow during the days till Thursday, when warm temps accompanied by rain will sweep the northeast. Whether or not this will be the last time we see snowmaking on the east coast this season has yet to be seen.
