Conditions here in New England are pretty good. People are saying that they are fantastic to the point of "epic conditions" but that's only because most of last year was so thin (although the end of last season was stellar, but most people quit in frustration before then). Mt. Washington, Mt. Mansfield, Saddleback Mt., Pico Peak and Jay Peak have all now broken the 200" mark, with three and a half months of out heaviest snowfall yet to come. Several other areas are closing in on the mark, especially in southern vermont/central new hampshire who have been getting ripped by recent storms (Tenney Mountain holding the single storm record this year with 39" in 48 hours).
We're undergoing a little cold snap right now (only about 19° at my house, just outside Boston), and at Jay Peak Saturday it was absolutely frigid (base high was 2°, summit high was -14°, with average summit temps of around -21°, and winds around 45 knauts, making for a wind chill of about -66°). But all the cold has been fantastic for the snow. Everything that has fallen since christmas has been light dry fluffy stuff, at the colder areas the water content has been below 9% (compare to Alta or Taos).
So yeah, things are okay here. I could do with a little more sunshine though, just to pack the snow down better for spring corn later on. The good news is that NO JANUARY THAW IS EXPECTED by meterologists!!! YAHOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
