Closing day of the 2012-2013 ski season at Nashoba Valley Ski Area.
March 10, 2013 marked the end of the 2012-2013 ski season at Nashoba Valley Ski Area. Festivities included BBQ and the Pirate and Naval themed annual Pond Skim. Male, female, yound and old participated in this chilly event; even owner Alan Fletcher Jr. took a turn (and made it smoothly to the other side)! Following are some shots from the day's festive event.

The Boston Globe, WCVB, and other news outlets are reporting that a 14-year-old female was involved in accident on Sunday morning at Nashoba Valley Ski Area.

The snow totals more than doubled last year's entire seasonal amount.
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…

Two big storms this weekend have eclipsed the entire natural snowfall total for last season. What will be the final total?
During the 2011-2012 season at Nashoba Valley Ski Area, there were approximately nine inches of natural snow, excluding the Halloween storm (which had 10). Over the past few days, we've been told that number's been nearly eclipsed already. Today, we want to ask you: how much natural snow will Westford see on the slopes this year? Will it be up to the 110 inches in 2010-2011? Will we be stuck after this latest storm? If it's a number in between, how much? Let us know your prediction in the comments section. We'll check back at the end of the season to see who was the closest. Oh, and one more thing.
