Lake Placid Powder Alert

And Here Comes Spring!


Lake Placid snow from Adirondack Lifestyle 03-03-15

Yesterday’s snow squalls were welcome but windy, as you can see, the trees are bare today.


Yesterday’s surprise band of snow squalls left six inches of delightful fresh powder at 2,200 feet in Lake Placid, N.Y. , and more at higher elevations. The mini-dump was the perfect treat — just what upstate New York needed to refresh skied-out trails.

Factors that include consistent snowfalls since late December, and a colder-than-average February, have created very nice snowpack in the Adirondack Mountains. Skiers and riders looking for a warm trend to condense the backcountry snowpack will be pleased tomorrow when a brief bout of sleet and snow is expected to move through the region, a reminder to fans of Adirondack outdoor recreations to get ready for spring. Speaking of spring, Adirondack maple producers have struggled with the hip-deep snow, but are ready and waiting for the inevitable warm days and cold nights required for the sap to run. Have a look at the springtime-fresh green shades in today’s featured photo, taken this morning at HQ. A word to the wise snow slider — carpe Adirondack diem.
