    West Coast Mountains Get Monster Snowstorm in Time for Presidents Weekend

    California Mountains waited all winter to get a classic snowstorm with 4 to 6 feet of fresh snow and they finally got the big snow last weekend. Sierra at Tahoe, the childhood snowboarding home of Olympic Slopestyle Gold Medalist Jamie Anderson picked up more than 6 feet of fresh snow since this time last week. Many California resorts doubled their terrain after the last series of storms.

    Utah mountains like Snowbird and Colorado resorts like Arapahoe Basin and Crested Butte wrap the week with more fresh snow and powder skiing with 4 to 6 feet of fresh powder over the last two weeks. Their snow depths run anywhere from 6 to 9 feet so steeps and bowls have extremely strong coverage.

    The parade of snowstorms marches on in the Northeast and the Mid-Atlantic. Camelback in the Poconos and Windham in the Catskills enjoy their third substantial snowfall in just over 2 weeks. Sugarbush and Stowe in Vermont and Bretton Woods, New Hampshire kicked off the week with a powder day and several inches of fresh snow. Thursday's storm delivers more fresh powder at those mountains with strong snowfall possible for Mount Sunapee, NH and Mount Snow, VT. The fresh snow leaves its mark and clears out before the 3 day Presidents weekend.
