After Freeze-Thaw Cycle, the East Gets Some Essential Powder Days

By

The past two weeks have not been kind to New England skiing. Multiple rainstorms and freeze-thaw cycles have led to some abysmal conditions and the complete destruction of the region’s snowpack. That was until Thursday night into Friday when the area saw some decent snowfall ranging from half a foot to just over a foot of powder. The big winners were out of Vermont, with many mountains getting over a foot of snow. And then on Sunday, a snow squall delivered another a couple of inches of snow to most mountains, with Whiteface being the big winner with eight inches from the squall.
