While no major snowfall is forecast, temperatures should be low enough for snow-making. Hunter Mountain already has 10-54" of snow on 45 trails serviced by ten lifts. Hunter hosts Tas Cru on Saturday night, The Christine Spero Group on Sunday night and cover band 5Zero on New Year's Eve, when fireworks go off after the Torchlight Parade. At Windham Mountain there are 20 groomed trails open, with eight lifts over 178 acres of 6-44" of snow. The Amish Outlaws and DJ Brian play New Year's Eve after the fireworks at 9 p.m. Catamount Ski in Hillsdale is open holiday hours, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. through January 1. They have 22 of 34 trails, and five of six lifts running over 8-24" of snow. Click here to listen to the WGXC Ski Report. PLAY CLIP (1:22)
