Comments CommentsThe April Fool's Storm of 2017 dumped a lot of snow south of Franconia Notch/Crawford Notch, but not too much above. There was roughly 3 to 6 inches of new snow here (as compared to a foot or more in other parts of the state). Though moist, it fortunately wasn't as heavy as stuff in Central New Hampshire.

$29 day brought some skiers and made some lower mountain trails crowded, but the quads were all ski-on. The fixed grip double/triple were not running, nor needed. The Telegraph T-Bar was open.

As far as I could tell, all of the trails were open. With the exception of Sly Fox (steeps scraped to dirt), all had reasonable coverage, though a few steep areas (such as Bode's and lower Granny's Grit) had some dirt showing. Deeper base depths on some of the main trails.

West Mountain skied nicely, with closer to half a foot of new snow. Smoothest skiing was probably off Zephyr, as it appeared those trails were the last ones groomed this morning.

Snow fell throughout the day until about closing time, at which point the sun was trying to break through. Even with temperatures above freezing in the afternoon, it was generally snow with occasional sleet. Observed no rain.
