Short Term Forecast

Good morning skiers and riders, and happy Friday! It certainly is a cold start this morning with most spots waking up with temperature readings in the single digits above and below zero. The coldest air this morning will actually be found near mountain bases as cold air tends to be very dense and hangs out near the surface. A quick check at Jay Peak shows a picturesque start to a bluebird day as temperatures will gradually warm up. 


Jay Peak, like most resorts around New England, is reporting powder and packed powder conditions on the slopes. 


For the rest of Friday expect temperatures to gradually warm into the lower and middle 20’s under beautiful sunny skies, despite this, you’ll still bundle up if you’re getting an early start out there! There’s not a whole lot going on weather-wise for the foreseeable future, so after another cold start, Saturday will pretty much be a carbon-copy of Friday with temperatures rising into  the middle and upper 20’s under clear skies. Watch Friday's  temperatures rise below!

Extended Forecast

Sunday is a much warmer day as clear skies continue to be the theme of the forecast. Temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 30’s for most, with 40’s being found further south. Conditions will certainly have the feeling of spring skiing by the time Sunday afternoon rolls around with soft snow and warmer conditions. 

Speaking of warmer conditions, the first half of next week continues to look warm on most major computer models as an area of high pressure offshore pushes warm air from the south into New England. This will also help to setup the storm track for a couple of storm threats next week. The first threat arrives on Tuesday with the second arriving on Thursday.

At this time the models are relatively divided over the dominant precipitation type and storm tracks. Some models like the american GFS have a storm tracking to our west with warm air flooding into the area. On the other hand, the Canadian CMC model shows a system to our south with heavy snow for ski country. The preferred track will become more clear as we move through the weekend so you’ll want to check back with us tomorrow for the latest details. 

To give you a sense of the uncertainty, check out this comparison between the two models for next Thursday. The GFS has a rainstorm, but the CMC has a significant snow storm. We might be a bit biased, but we're secretly hoping the CMC is right!
