Powder on the mountain

A skier in fresh powder on the slopes of Windham this morning. Last night's snowstorm added 14 to 18 inches on the mountain, and has added 10 trails to Windham's open territory.

The other Catskills ski mountains are rejoicing in fresh powder, too. Belleayre's open terrain has doubled overnight, thanks to about 14 inches of snow. Hunter lucked out with the timing of its "Demo Day" event today, when skiers get the chance to try out new ski and snowboard gear from manufacturers. And the folks at Plattekill are thrilled to have gotten 10 inches, and more still falling.

With temperatures expected to hover in the 20s in the Catskills high peaks for the next few days, it's shaping up to be an epic ski weekend.
