Confidence Is Growing For "Long-Duration" Winter Storm To Hit Vermont

East coast skiers from Pennsylvania to Maine are buzzing about a major spring snow storm that could dump as much as three feet of new snow on New England's upper elevations, if the forecasts are accurate.

The storm is expected to hit between Wednesday and Friday of this week. Jay Peak, known for being Vermont's snowiest ski resort, is expecting "1-3 feet" of new snow. See below.

Despite a mostly-mild winter for many ski resorts across New England, Jay Peak is sporting an impressive 331 inches of total snowfall on the season.

If the storm plays out as many meteorologists are predicting, Jay is likely to pass their seasonal average of 347 inches of snow. Regardless if Jay falls short of this benchmark, skiers and riders should be excited -- spring pow is on the way.

Spring snow storms of this caliber are a special treat for our friends on the east coast. April is usually reserved for mud season, rain, and dreariness. Any respite from the bleakness certainly won't go unappreciated. Especially if it means a brief return to powder skiing.

I'll never forget the mid-April trip to Jay Peak that my Dad took me on when I was a freshman in high school.

Rather than going to the beach for Spring Break like other families in Delaware, we packed up the car, drove 10 hours North, and were treated to top-to-bottom fresh powder conditions, without any crowds to speak of.

And people I grew up with wonder why I love skiing so much...

Conditions of that quality are extremely rare for the east coast in the middle of April, but it seems that Jay is headed that way once again.

Here's hoping the famous 'Jay Cloud' does her thing. I'd love to write an article later this week titled: 'Jay Peak Reporting 36 Inches Of New Snow'. Fingers crossed.
