Early snow in Maine

Sugarloaf Mountain ski resort has a foot (30 cm) or more of heavy wet snow in places.

“This wet heavy snow is really good early in the season. It sticks to services, it helps us establish a strong base that we can build on later in the season with snowmaking and more natural snow,” says Noelle Tuttle, marketing and communications manager, Sugarloaf Mountain.

    The way things are going, we might have ourselves a White Christmas here in NZ, even though it occurs 3 days after our summer solstice / longest day / official start of ‘Summer’…
