It’s a powder day at state ski areas

Don’t get to say this often … it’s a powder day at Connecticut ski areas.

I’m talking about the kind of snow found in Utah, the dry puffy kind that you can blow away.

The state’s five areas received between 5 and 8 inches of snow. Not a huge dump, but we’ll take it.

Mohawk Mountain has 17 of its 25 trails open. It also has a great deal on lift tickets: $30 for skiing and riding until 10 p.m. Check out its live cam.

Mount Southington has all 14 of its trails open and five lifts spinning. From 10 a.m, to 3 p.m., a lift ticket is 35 bucks.

Ski Sundown is also 100 percent open with a base of up to 50 inches. Cheapest lift tickets are $32 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Woodbury also has all 15 of its trails ready.

And Powder Ridge in Middlefield get a needed boost of some natural snow to open five of its 19 trails.

Areas in northeaster Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire where the biggest winners in snowfall with nearly 2 feet.

Southern Vermont areas like Mount Snow, Okemo and Killington picked up nearly 18 inches in the last two days.

Keep it coming!
