Ski resorts finally see snow

Dec 11, 2023 11:11 pm

While the valleys near the Hudson River got a lot of rain, higher elevations did get snow for the first time on Dec. 11. After some school children who were delayed two hours or missed school on Monday, local ski resorts were probably the happiest to see the flakes falling. The ski resorts hope for snow on Thanksgiving weekend every year, but have had to wait until mid-December this time for any measurable amounts. Windham Mountain reported eight inches fell there during the storm, and that they currently have a base depth from 12"-to-24" of real and manufactured snow. Hunter Mountain reported six inches of snow from the storm, and an 18" base depth. Catamount Ski in Columbia County has not updated its website since the storm, and has not opened for the season.
