Is it possible for a fourth Nor’easter in as little time as two and a half weeks here in the north country? It is not only possible, but according to the National Weather Service, it is probable! Based on two weather models, another major storm system will organize in the southeast and turn up coast creating another Nor’easter for New England and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Timing of the storms arrival to our region is now anticipated to be late next Wednesday with the storm raging throughout the day on Thursday.
After Winter Storm Skylar pulled out of the region earlier this week, persistent snow showers have contributed to an additional 4 to 6 inches of accumulation on top of the nearly 2 feet of snow left from this storm. In fact, the snow gauge in my backyard is now totally buried – which means the natural snowpack on the ground there is over 32 inches deep! With another Nor’easter, we may not see the snow gauge for weeks to come!
Every year during the third week in March, I take a ski vacation. My wife, Lisa and I had planned to take a trip west this year. When time came to make travel plans, the western ski resorts had very little snow. Thank goodness we did not book. Instead, we are going to enjoy a ski staycation here in northern NH. With all of this snow and more on the way, the best skiing in the country is right here in northern New England! We will ski Sunday River, Wildcat, Bretton Woods, Loon, and Cannon Mountain. We could not have picked a better time. And, you can too!
Why not take advantage of these snow conditions and plan a last minute ski get-a-way to the Royalty Inn? We still offer discounted tickets for Wildcat, Attitash, and Bretton Woods. The snowmobile trails are also in excellent condition and have been freshly groomed. Do not miss out on these fabulous mid-winter conditions in March. Welcome to the Royalty Inn!
