Fresh Snow in Vermont Area Ski Resorts

February 24, 2012 By: Adam Leposa

Vermont area ski resorts have received over eight inches of fresh snow within the last 24 hours, and the National Weather Service is calling for three more days of snowfall across the state. The good weather comes at the same time as the Vermont House of Representatives unanimously passed H.365, which designates skiing and snowboarding the official state winter sports.
