Skiers eager for Northeast snow
WESTFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -- A midwinter storm headed for Massachusetts on Friday could drop more than a foot of snow, setting up a busy weekend for skiers and snowboarders.
Because of the storm, kids at Nashoba Valley Ski Area are planning on a closed school and an open mountain.
“I might go Thursday night ‘cause we might not have school on Friday ‘cause of the snow,” said Billy Queally, a skier.
“It’s going to be a lot of powder and it’s going to be a lot of fun to ski in,” said Molly Queally, a skier.
The ski area could get anywhere between 16 to 24 inches as the storm moves through Friday night into Saturday morning.
“I know there are a lot of people that don't want to hear about a lot of snow, but we love it -- skiers and snowboarders love to hear this stuff so we are really looking forward to it,” said Jon Damon, Marketing Director at Nashoba Valley Ski Area.
Nashoba Valley has gotten about 20 inches of snow this season, but the ski area could get that much in just 24 hours.
