Sunrise and Snow

Our snow reporter arrives at the mountain pretty early every morning – probably before most of you are awake. This morning, he was lucky enough to witness a spectacular sunrise. At approximately 6:30 a.m., the sun – which had yet to rise over the White Mountains in the east – began to cast a brilliant pink glow over the high clouds above the mountains.

Those clouds signaled the outer edge of a band of snow, which enveloped the mountain several hours later. The snow that fell was heavy and accumulated quickly. Here’s a shot taken at 10 a.m. on Lower Flume.

It looks like we could get even more snow this weekend, with the potential for another nor’easter. It’s still a ways out, so we’ll keep you posted.
