Latest Conditions & Forecast Discussion

As of Sunday, February 23rd


  • It was a good week for the Adirondacks as an average of 6" of snow fell there, keeping near 100% of mountains open
  • Vermont did well also, picking up a fresh 1-6+" in the last few days at all open parks (17).  Conditions there are spectacular
  • The Catskills and Berkshires more than held their own, adding a couple more trails over the last week and are on a solid base


Some light rain showers come in Tuesday that will start off as a little wet snow but nothing to write home about.  Rain resumes Wednesday before colder air catches up to it, which will transition it to snow deeper into the day and especially in the evening and overnight into Thursday.  

From there into Friday, we'll stay cold as the lake effect snow machine gets going, bringing some decent localized accumulations in the Adirondacks, and a few more reaching the Catskills, Greens and Berkshires.  Good for snow making too, as that task comes to a close for the season before long.


**Always a good idea to call ahead to your mountain of choice to verify their conditions and status**

How About Cross Country Skiing?

XC skiers, there is snow around, you just have to head outside the Capital District, and generally not to far, either.


Albany.com's article on Cross-Country Skiing Hotspots in the Capital Region has some great suggestions that are not far away in any direction.
