Winter Arrives in the Adirondacks

Which Makes This a Very Happy Telemark Tuesday!

Snowy hike 11-25-13

There is currently just enough snow on the ground in the Adirondacks for sledding and skiing.

Last week’s cold and snowy weekend, when temperatures dropped to below zero after a 4 inch snowfall, was just a prelude for the next winter storm predicted to hit the Adirondacks tonight. The experts promise a foot of snow!

Okay, the meteorologists did not ‘promise’ 12 inches of snow will fall in the Adirondacks, but they said it could happen.

Skiers of all genres are delighted. Whiteface Mountain opens for the season this Friday and cross-country skiers are already enjoying themselves on the Whiteface Mountain Toll Road. There is just enough natural snow on the ground for sledding, but conditions should be fantastic after this week’s Thanksgiving snow storm.

The winter storm will cause difficult travel conditions throughout the Adirondacks and east coast. If you were planning to visit Lake Placid this Thanksgiving weekend, good idea. But you’d better get on the road immediately, and don’t forget your snowsuit.
