Winter Storm Quinn just brought a ton of snow to southern Vermont. The hardest hit (we'd say luckiest) area in New England during the storm is now seeing amazing skiing and riding conditions. So our recommendation? Pack up your car and get there ASAP. Below are the mountains reporting the largest 24 hr snowfall totals and we've provided helpful tips on where to stay and eat too.

Snowfall totals from resort websites for Winter Storm Quinn as of publication

Mount Snow, 27" 
Dover, Vermont

According to their snow report, Mount Snow hasn't seen this much snow in a 24 hr period since 2012 with a little more on the way. 

EAT: Head to Canned after a day on the snow, which features only Vermont-made beers and ciders in cans along with small bites.

STAY: Splurge on the slopeside Grand Summit Resort Hotel or go for the more affordable Snow Lake Lodge just a short shuttle ride away 

Magic Mountain, 25 - 30"
Londonderry, Vermont

Magic's had a rough go of it this winter, but that's all changed now. They're calling it EPIC and we don't disagree. 

EAT: Less than 15 min from the mountain, Honeypie serves up burgers and dogs with a farm-to-table flair. 

STAY: The Inn at Weston offers a relaxed B&B experience or if you're really just focused on the pow, The Upper Pass Lodge at Magic will do the trick.

Stratton, 25 - 30"
Stratton Mountain, Vermont

"Snow Conditions: Powder" isn't something we see enough on the snow report of our home mountain, Stratton, so we couldn't be more excited. Although, on second thought maybe we shouldn't include Stratton on this list and try to save all the powder for ourselves. Go to Mount Snow!!

EAT: Benedict's is a new all-day brunch spot in the village. It's perfect for a hearty mid-day meal after you've been shredding the gnar since early access.

STAY: Book one of the on-mountain condo rentals still available through Stratton.

And if you're curious, just a tad further north, Okemo's reporting 12" - 16" and Killington's at 14".
