Snow Storms Hits Northern Maine As Well

FasterSkierOctober 28, 2005

Yesterday we posted an article on early season skiing in New Hampshire.

It appears that the storm continued eastward and also dumped over a foot of snow in Northern Maine as well.

On Wednesday we received this email from Brian Olsen:

We received a healthy dumping of 12-16″ of snow here at the 10th Mountain Ski Center in Fort Kent, Maine overnight. The snow started around 4 pm last night and kept at it throughout the morning. Grooming might commence here in an hour or two, but there are a lot of downed trees to clean up.

Gary Colliander and myself, both natives of Bloomington, MN, but living in northern Maine as part of the Maine Winter Sports Center, enjoyed a long ski this morning. We both used old waxless skis. It brought back memories of the Halloween snowstorm that hit the Twin Cities in the early 1990's in which kids trick-or-treated on skis wearing white plastic bags as costumes.
