The White Mountain Report: Feb 16th, 2017
Yet another snow event yesterday and last night brings the Valley total to around 30" in the past 10 daze! WOO WOO... There was another 2 hour delay for the schools as well. Let me tell you, this is getting old. It was clear in the Valley at 9:30, but still snowing like crazy when got up to the Notch at around 10AM.

Selected Ice Conditions effective February 16, 2017
At this point almost everything is IN and in pretty decent shape and I'm raising the ICECon level to a 4. The thing now is simply getting around.
