That’s correct, after one of the driest early seasons on record, a winter storm is slowly marching across Sugarloaf Mountain.

Currently, NOAA is predicting that storm totals could be upwards of a foot by Wednesday morning. That is a total of 17″ if you count the 5″ that fell in the last week. Obviously, the east coast is stoked to finally get a real ski season going and this is a good start but means nothing if followed by temperatures like the ones we’ve seen all through December. Basically pray for ice and snow and anything but rain and warm temps.

Not to mention, the ‘Loaf’ has been blasting snow guns at every opportunity and has kept its slopes open since they opened on November 22nd!
