The snow is timed perfectly ahead of the weekend, which should offer excellent snow conditions for skiers and riders. It will also help the ski areas to stay on track for their spring events calendars, which for some, go into mid-April.
But rather than out like a lamb, Ski New Hampshire expects March to go out with a bang. Visitors to the Granite State will find spring like conditions on the ski trails in the coming weeks, comfortable temperatures and plenty of events, such as pond skimming, 80s days, and cardboard box derbies to ring in spring.
“We’re excited to see this huge amount of snowfall after this season’s up and downs with the weather, but there’s nothing quite like spring skiing. The events all have such a celebratory atmosphere, the sun is shining, and our ski areas make sure that conditions are fantastic,” says Karolyn Castaldo, Communications and Marketing Manager for Ski New Hampshire.
