As of Monday, January 20th
With a nice fresh coating of snow across the mountains (3-6") and plenty of cold air to be had for a few days and more nights, the slopes are continuing to get back to good skiing form.
Another storm is in the forecast for the upcoming weekend, but details are elusive as yet. Stay tuned.
**Always a good idea to call ahead to your mountain of choice to verify their conditions and status**
Catskills - A nice reset with the weekend snow and plenty of cold air for snowmaking. Mountains are reporting a 1-2' base with many open runs.
Adirondacks - After last weekend's rain and mild temperatures, a fantastic snow recovery has happened and will continue to be built upon.
