The northern Adirondacks were hit with more snow the past few days, continuing what has been a snowy March.

The fairly deep snowpack means that skiing is great in many places in the northern Adirondacks right now. The Jackrabbit Trail is in great condition and all the crosscountry centers should be in good shape.

The one thing skiers should be aware of that some steep, open slopes may be avalanche prone right now, according to the National Weather Service in Burlington.  You can read a story about that by following the link below.
