    This is from the Burlington NWS office, so they only have the mountains within their coverage area. The NH mountains are mostly covered by the Portland NWS office. They don't seem to offer the same exact enhanced mountain forecasts (at least yet).

    As for mountain names to ski areas...

    Mt Ellen - Sugarbush
    Mt Mansfield - Stowe
    Jay Peak - Jay
    Killington Peak - Killington
    Ludlow Peak - Okemo

    Once you get further south in VT you enter the Albany NWS office territory. A quick look at their website doesn't show the enhanced mountain point forecasts either that the Burlington office offers.

    I see a lot of bare ground around the base of the Castlerock lift at Sugarbush in the webcam view. Can't really tell much about the mountain itself as there's not too many good views of it from any of their webcams. A view from across the valley shows a lot of grass in the valley itself. The mountain trails are still white from that view, but it is so far away that there could be bare spots that you can't see from that distance. MRG's cam shows a decent amount of snow loss too.

    Anytime widespread fog is in the forecast, the sublimation effect on top of the rain and air temp melted is viscous to the snowpack, especially the natural snowpack!!

    Less than 12hrs and we're back to below freezing temps over most all of ski country.

    Fire up the guns, and let's see who's systems have the muscle to recover quickest!!

    Im going next week. I'll watch ski movies and take care of a 10 hour online course I need to finish while the wife rests off her cold. I imagine the roads will be no fun..at ...all.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Not so much today (at least here at a lower elevation), but definitely last night and into the early morning hours.

    No mountain forecast, but the other offices do have the winter maps.
