From the Burlington NWS office...a very vague Winter Storm Watch and one 
of the longest time frames I've ever seen them issue for.  Friday morning 
through Saturday evening.  My 6-12" with up to 18" in some spots looks 
good as far as snowfall goes.  Can't stress the wind enough, however.  
Wind will shut down lifts possibly beginning Friday and especially 
Saturday morning.  We need the NW wind to generate the upslope 
snowfall...but you might need to use your own legs to get to said snow.
