2017-03-14, Waterville Valley, NH - Heavy Snow

Staying in Lincoln, NH for 3 days. Snow started around 7:00am. Drive down to the hill was slow but uneventful. By first chair there was already 2" on the ground at the base, twice that on top. Cold, face mask day with heavy snow and strong winds. Light extremely flat at times.

Let the Snow Begin!


The snow could not have come soon enough for the resort. Much green poking through in places that started to disappear as the day went on. Afternoon runs under the chair were all fresh as the wind and snow filled in lines. Wind scour on exposed runs on the north side together with drifts and bad lighting everywhere convinced us to bail early in the afternoon. Snowing all night in Lincoln.

Burke, Vt tomorrow.
