Weird deal with the left overs from Zeta. Models have cut back on totals due to a fast flat flow compared to yesterday (where we had a slow second low popping up and dumping). Here was a depiction from yesterday.

Still some heavy wet stuff to get some turns on. Snow map porn time!

That said, every model brings some serious cold in Friday night. Killington, Sunday River, et al. should have the guns roaring through Sunday afternoon. Then Monday morning into Wednesday.

It looks like Southern VT, Southwest NH and Western Maine could get over 16 inches of snow. Is that enough for them to open? Could magic be the first eastern Ski area to open this year? 2020 is a strange year.

Not from this system, I bet a place like Stratton (elevation matters here) picks up 6-8" tops. A little system with upslope  Monday could help out the larger mountains to the north. Magic needs to have Red Chair inspected as Geoff mentioned on the "Friends of Magic" FB page and they want everything good and settled for the season. Their plan is December 5th. My bet is on Sunday River to open next week.

The hell happened to you?!

I had to get my hip replaced.  I could not move very well and pain was very bad.  Surgery was 8/19/20.

Moving my daughter in an apartment in April and then moving the stuff into the Francoina house in June just did it in.

Unfortunately I am hearing Sunday River will not open until sometime AFTER NEXT weekend.  Nothing to do with lack of snow, they are blowing like crazy.  It has to do with the randsomwear attack Boyne got hit with almost two weeks ago now.  All reservation and ticketing systems are still down across the Boyne resort families.  I so have to wonder if the State of Maine asked them to pump the brakes a bit.  Anyway, Snowmaking underway on T2/Punch TTB/Jungle/Ecstacy/Right stuff/Lazy River into Risky Business/Kansas from Jordan into Aurora and upper Aurora.  Doubt the west side opens on opening, but we could be skiing all the way to Spruce and maybe Aurora if they wait til the teens of November for opening day.

I think a later opening than usual for Sunday River is the way to go. Wait until they can get multiple lifts and trail pods open to spread people out. Also, multiple lodges open to minimize people in doors. Even if they went pass holders only, they wouldn't be able to safely operate out of only Barker only with the usual two one or two lifts.

We have 4" on our deck, real shoveling, not just pushing the snow off.  I live :15 from Wachusett.

Was a nice surprise. I'm about 45 minutes southwest of Wachusett and that is what we got as well. 

 

Early this week looks great for a NW flow due to a low just sitting on the Gaspe. Most places probably grab 8-10" by Tuesday morning.

It was interesting to note that in my suburban neighborhood outside Wash DC we had normal to above normal amount of trick or treat traffic on Halloween.  Homeowners put candy on trays outside on front porch or yard and kids helped themselves.  Weather was decent, seasonably cool at night.  Seemed safe and appropriately socially distanced.  I'm glad the kids seemed to have a fun and fairly normal night.
