Hermon Mountain sees busy weekend, prepares for more snow

HERMON - Skiers and snowboarders are enjoying excellent conditions following the area's latest snow storm.

Hermon Mountain was really busy this past weekend, the fresh snow brought lines off people out to the ski resort for packed powder and a weekend of winter fun.

All trails are open and will most likely remain open until the end of the ski season.

With another snow storm headed our way mid-week, skiers, snowboarders and staff alike are saying bring it on.

"I'm really excited and maybe I can go skiing on one of those days, maybe after school," says Jacqueline James, a skier at Hermon Mountain.

"What can I say it's a beautiful day out here, just shredding the gnar," says Joseph Jordan, a snowboarder at the mountain on Sunday. "I don't want to shovel it per se, but it will be great to get out there and snowboard."

"When I start plowing and grooming it, I'll be very very happy," says Bill Whitcomb, Owner and Manager of Hermon Mountain Ski Resort. "If it comes, great, if it doesn't, there's plenty of snow, so either way."

Whitcomb says Hermon Mountain will close at the end of March.
