Winter is in Full Force in Garrett County

On Sunday, as per the forecast, the skies opened up around 11am and snow continued throughout the day, snowing heaviest between 1 and 4 pm. We ended up with another compacted 5 inches of snow on top of the 7 inches we received Friday. As the evening went on the light snow mixed with and changed to freezing drizzle, making local roads and even Garrett Highway difficult to traverse without four wheel drive.

Also with the recent cold temperatures the lake is starting to freeze over, starting with McHenry Cove. The cold and snowy weather looks like it will stick around for the foreseeable future.

At Wisp, after a busy mid winter weekend, conditions are nearly perfect with packed powder conditions. It is likely the eastern ridge slopes, Main Street, Eye Opener etc. will open this week for the first time this season.
