The system should leave snow on a variety of ski resorts from southern Vermont to northwest Maine with a particular focus on southern New Hampshire and western Maine. Ski areas such as Cranmore, Mount Sunapee, Sugarloaf, Sunday River, and Attitash will ultimately see the biggest snowfall totals.

Sugarloaf, ME – 10″
Stowe, VT – 8″
Sunday River, ME – 7″
