What a difference a week makes

December 30, 2008

It’s been quite a week. The lead up to the typically busy holiday period was marked by three back to back storms which dumped between 8 and 24 inches of snow across the northeast, leaving things looking great, while many western resorts languished in a continued drought of snow.

Just 7 days later, the tides have turned completely both in the east and west - unseasonable warmth and several inches of rain literally cut trail counts in half at many eastern resorts, while huge dumps have buried many western resorts. With many New England resorts now in desperate need of some white stuff and cold temperatures to bolster their trail counts, we wait and hope that the next three snow producing events lined up for the rest of the week are biggies.
