We are enjoying an ‘Indian Summer’ here at Mount Washington State Park with temperature inversions making it warmer at the highest elevations and colder in the valleys. The resulting high clouds have been making for some spectacular sunsets too.
Many local ski areas are taking advantage of the cooler nighttime temperatures to make artificial snow. As the mountains are mostly brown in color, the ski areas who are making snow and visible from the summit are quite pronounced.
While Cannon Mountain is hidden from our view by the Franconia range they are busy making snow as well and planning to open next week on November 23rd!
For a full list of ski areas making snow and their opening dates please visit SkiNH.com.
Our beautiful late fall weather looks like it will continue for another week or so but come later part of November the forecast is showing a return to winter so we’ll enjoy this weather while we can!
One thought to “Mount Washington State Park 11-16-12”
Jay Peak is labeled correctly. “Killington” is actually Mount Mansfield (I believe Killington’s slopes face north/ northwest, so I’m not sure that they’d be visible from anywhere in New Hampshire.
I believe “somewhere in Vermont” is one of the mountains west of the Mad River Valley. Potentially Lincoln Peak or Mount Ellen.
