There was not much October snow to write about this year. Not like in 2015 or 2014!
But slowly and steadily the ski resorts have been receiving enough snow to operate their normal schedule and as always more snow is on the way!
Unless, that is, you are in the Northeast! New York, Pennsylvania, and others have zero trails open at the moment!
The unusually warm and dry late fall has dampened the ski season for those in the north east states. Only eight of the 20 downhill ski resorts in Vermont have opened so far. Many restaurants, hotels, resorts, and retail stores remain closed and are waiting for the snow to fall. The economic impact could be huge but every year the season was shortened by weather the skiers manage to ski their annual amount and bring the status back to normal.
The Rocky Mountains are blessed now with plenty of snow to get the season going with a bang! All across the West recent snow storms have left 14″ in some places.
Breckenridge Ski Resort, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland Ski Area, Winter Park Resort and Eldora Ski Area are all reporting about 9 inches of new snow.
