It’s closer to June than it is January, and there’s still some skiing to be had here in the Granite State.

It is quite the turnaround from last year, where 80-degree weather was practically the norm.

As you can tell from the video above, the resorts are having fun with the changing weather. The costumes and wipeouts will be sure to cure some of those Monday blues. Mount Sunapee also had its annual Slush Cup event over the weekend.

The winter weather is still in full swing in the White Mountains. There’s still plenty of snow if you’re looking to extend winter.

Here’s a list of the ski areas across the state. Does your favorite spot still have any trails open? And if you’re wondering what the conditions are like today, here’s what Wildcat Mountain is forecasting.
