NEW ENGLAND, United States – For the first time in what feels like quite a while, the New England ski resorts were able to celebrate a monster storm weekend while many of the resorts further west were left feeling a bit jealous. Despite many of these mountains getting quite close to their closing dates, snowfall totals reached well above two feet in some areas.

The past seven days in general have been very good to many of these mountains. In Maine, both Sugarloaf and Sunday River received over 40 inches of snowfall throughout the last week. In the past three days alone, Sunday River received a whopping 36″, while Sugarloaf took down 23″ in just the last 48 hours. Meanwhile, the independent Saddleback saw 20 inches in the past 48 hours.

The many resorts of New Hampshire were also quite lucky though the storm. Wildcat has seen 37 inches of snowfall throughout the past week, while Mount Sunapee is down a bit at 28 inches. In the past 48 hours, though Wildcat saw 27″ while Mount Sunapee saw 22″. Cannon Mountain has given a range for their 48 hour snow total, with somewhere between 22-30 inches of snow touching the ground.

Despite being furthest west, the resorts of Vermont were no less lucky. Killington‘s seen a whopping 40 inches throughout the past week, with the last 48″ bringing in half of that (20 inches). Stowe was the slightest bit less lucky, receiving 39 inches of snowfall in the past week. The past 48 hours, however, only brought 7 inches of snowfall to the resort. Okemo is down 10″ from the other two, taking home just 29″ throughout the past week and 17″ throughout the past 48 hours.

Altogether, “Miracle March” has certainly been good to many of the New England ski resorts. And though the forecast doesn’t seem to include much snow for these resorts, the next few weeks could prove to include some killer skiing. Plus, with a total solar eclipse passing over many of these mountains in early April, spring skiing could get pretty wild.
