Spring Powder Dump in Vermont


Jay, VT, April 10-Spring skiing got a big boost Sunday, in the northeast. A late-season storm brought snow to much of the Eastern seaboard, packing a powerful punch in northern Vermont and New York.

Jay Peak resort got between 22-24 inches of snow, making for one of the best Apirl powder days in the resort’s history.

“It’s hoots and hollers all over the place,” said Chris Veillon, in public relations at Jay Peak, of the cheers as the first tram went up this morning. “The snow translated into knee-deep to waist-deep powder, due to winds and drifing. It’s light, fluffy flakes, and it has remained cool enough to stay that way.”

In New York, Hunter Mountain got 10 inches, boosting the area’s spring base to between 15-105 inches.

More spring snow may be on the way this week for both New York and Vermont, according to the weather forecast.
