The entire state of Massachusetts is virtually closed, with perhaps one exception here in Westford.
Nashoba Valley Ski Area remains open to anyone who can walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe over, as well as those who stayed at the hill during and prior to the storm that has pummelled Westford and the rest of New England.
According to Nashoba Valley spokesperson Jonathan Damon, the storm so far has dropped 26 inches of natural snow onto the resort, compared with 18 during all of last year (10 of which came during the Halloween storm, which was before the ski area was reopened for the season.)
"People started showing up, hiking in the snow, and we had a patroller on the site, so we figured it was best to have everything open and safe," said Damon. "Right now there are more skiiers here than cars."
Damon went on to say that the storm brings Nashoba Valley's current seasonal natural snow amount to 46 inches, very close to the 55 inch average the ski hill will see during an average year.
Currently, the state of Massachusetts is still under a vehicle travel ban until further notice.
