Compiled from todays totals

We've got an April powder day so come get some turns!! It is great skiing and riding!! In the last 24 hours we have received 5" at the base, 12" of new snow at midway and 14" at the top. Overnight since the lifts closed we have received 2" at the base and 6" at both midway and the top.
Currently we have cloudy skies and it is snowing from the top of Chair 3 to the top of the mountain. We have mixed precipitation at the base. It is 34 degrees at the base and 30 degrees at midway and 26 degrees at the top. The winds are 5-15 mph with occasional higher gusts. We plan to operate Chair 3, 4, 6, pony and the Tram today from 10:30am-5:30pm. Patrol will be working on opening the North Face for later today, hopefully around Noon.

2-4" of snow so far this morning and it's COMING DOWN up here in Pinkham Notch! It's about 32F here at the base, and 21F at the summit, so this snow has some body to it --- it's not super wet, and it'll stick around! We're expecting somewhere up to a foot of new snow through the night, so Wednesday's going to be the Day! The forecast looks great for skiing & riding right through this week! There's definitely "something" going around in case you're starting to feel a bit light-headed, or a scratchy throat . . . Tickets are $29.50pp --- or if you just buy your season pass for 06/07, then it would be $0 to ski right through 'til closing!
