Storm Dumps 3 Feet Of Snow On Whiteface
A Memorial Day weekend storm has dropped three feet of snow on Whiteface Mountain.
Whiteface spokesman Jon Lundin says 36 inches of white powder blanketed the nearly 5,000-foot-tall Adirondack mountain.
That has forced the Olympic Regional Development Authority to close Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway on the backside of the mountain.
Lundin says the snow began lightly falling Saturday and steadily dropped Sunday, finishing in the evening. He didn't know if the three-foot snowfall was a record for Whiteface.
Burlington, Vermont, National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Muccilli says the mountain experienced steady snow and gusty winds throughout the weekend.
He says Mount Mansfield, in Stowe, Vt., had 13.2 inches of snow Sunday, the latest in the season it's ever had a foot or more.
