Hey, skiers,

 

Get ready for a continuation of improving ski conditions as more resorts continue to open with a fresh onslaught of fresh powder and ideal snow making conditions through Saturday.

 

The coldest air mass since mid-February of last season will spread across the entire New England ski country from today and into the first half of the weekend. The arctic punch will be felt as snow showers and squalls will sweep across all of the mountain ranges during Thursday afternoon. The core of the polar air mass will be with us on Friday as temperatures without the wind chill will drop 10-15 degrees below zero across all of New England ski country.

 

A storm system will start to arrive on Saturday with several inches of fresh powder, before a changeover to sleet, freezing rain, and rain by Saturday night into Sunday morning. Skies will clear Sunday afternoon.

 

Get your wax on.
