I'm not sure how they count this (or how the resorts do... Sugarbush says 279" season total). I imagine Jay got well over 209", since in the mountains we should have gotten about that much. On the topic of skiing, I've pretty much given up, but I am going to go skiing tomorrow at Sugarbush at least a few runs. It's free with a donation to the VLT for the preservation of Bragg Hill farm. I better get up there early before it turns to slush!

I found out this afternoon that Jay will not be open this weekend. They had announced earlier this week that they had planned to be, but from what I saw today the trails have a ton of bare spots.

Euro at it again with snow in the picture. May 14th time frame in New England. Widespread 6-9" VT/NH with 9"+Local.

Euro was dead on with this past historic event from 6 days out not only with the locations of where the snow would fall, not only with the amounts, but with the Upper Level low being in the Gulf states.

While this solution has only been shown twice now, it's hard to argue against the Euro. We'll have to see how consistant it is.

Im sure snow in May isnt that rare there. I might be wrong though

"IF" this happens...it would be a rare event especially in the Burlington area where the latest date of 1-3 inches of snow is May 9th. Latest for 6" is April 19th. But there has been traces of snow up until end of May.

Haha wow... That would be cool. I think a few crazies would be out skiing that, even if its just at the top elevations.


Here's a pic of Sugarbush South and North today... Still some snow hanging on to the top although this is where they had blown quite a bit of snow to begin with I think.



I like that PDF for specs on late and early snows. Would something like that be available for something more local in the mountains or even Montpelier?

I guarantee you that if you and I match temperatures since April 1st, you guys would have so many more 70s than me. It was chilly all day here with bright sun. The coast didnt get out of the 50s! Winds made it chillier.

6:30pm today Vermont was still toasty in the 70s and even local 80s while we were in the 50s here. Amazing!

2, maybe 3 years ago we had significant snow with the ground staying white for a day or two just when apple blossoms were coming out. The old, untended orchard of a dozen or so trees in my back yard was affected by this. But it was weird. Some trees had a full load of apples that summer, and others almost nothing. I'd say that those blossoms are a week to 10 days shy of opening up right now. Strange coincidence.

Looks like you guys will be getting a break from the heat. lol

Both Euro and GFS show a trough digging down all the way to Virginia. Which means New England is going to get cold. 20s at night. 40s during the day for couple days. Right now they are saying Next Sunday and Monday nights.

BTV discussion only until Saturday but acknowledge this potential drop

AS WE PROGRESS INTO THE SATURDAY/SUNDAY TIME FRAME MODELS CONTINUE WITH IDEA THAT A SECOND AND STRONGER COLD FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL APPROACH FROM THE NORTHWEST...
