The 3.2 inches of snow that fell in the 12:30 A.M. to 7:30 A.M. timeframe suggests that the snowfall averaged out in the moderate intensity range, but I wasn’t awake to see more than that.  The snowfall wasn’t comprised of massive upslope flakes, but it’s still quite dry in the cold air – which apparently came in with a vengeance.  It was still 27.0 F at 12:30 A.M., so it fell off 20 degrees since then.
 
It’s a little tough to get the event totals for the ski areas on this one, because some areas are reporting just their overnight total as their 24-hour total, whereas at other spots it’s an actual 24-hour total, but here’s where things seem to be so far:
 
Jay Peak: 14”
Smuggler’s Notch: 10”
Stowe: 12”
Bolton Valley: 13”
Mad River Glen: 8”
Sugarbush: 9”
Pico: 13”
Killington: 13”
Bromley: 8”
Stratton: 9”
Mount Snow: 6”
