Mount Washington received a sprinkle of snow over the holiday weekend.

Last week, resort staff expected heavy accumulation leading up to and over the weekend.

Seventeen centimetres of the white stuff fell over the last 48 hours, and while not too heavy, did make some fresh powder for slope riders.

Going back to last year’s Christmas holiday, Mount Washington received a whopping 1.5 metres of snow on Christmas Eve.

Mount Washington opened ahead of schedule this year, Dec. 2, because the snow was falling like crazy and temperatures were below normal.

However, December came and the mountain has experienced sunny and dry conditions.

Periods of light to moderate snowfall are expected over the next few days, according to the resort’s website.
