Fresh blowing Snow

Snow blowing up over the Summit

Yesterday saw a little over four inches of very dry snow fall across the Northern Presidentials. Right now with winds speeds of 50 miles per hour gusting to 70 miles per hour at times this new loosely packed and very dry snow is being carried up over the northern side of the mountain over the top of the radio towers and back down the other side. As we watched from our office windows today looking northwest the snow was dense enough to limit visibility to only a few miles while around the rest of the horizon we enjoyed 100 mile visibility. Here is a short clip of the blowing snow.

In a little over a week we’ve gone from what was starting to look and feel like spring on the ‘rock pile’ to more seasonal wintery conditions. Don’t be fooled by the longer days and warmer weather down in the Valley because above tree line and up here on the Summit it’s still winter and none of the inside facilities are open to the public yet. down in the Valley because above tree line and up here on the Summit it’s still winter and none of the inside facilities are open to the public yet.
