New England residents are battening down the hatches for a winter storm that will arrive Friday night into Vermont.

Maine resorts have put out the call for locals to grab their powder boards and at Sugarbush Resort in Northern Vermont, it's officially on.

Over the last few days, the resort has received 18 inches of new snow and is expecting 12-18 inches in Saturday's storm.

Sugarbush was even able to re-open Castlerock, an infamous and steep run and accompanying chairlift, that is beloved. Being able to re-open Castlerock is a seriously awesome thing.

Said Sugarbush on Instagram on Thursday, "Snow so good we're even reopening the Castlerock chair tomorrow."

The storm extends to Southern Vermont, where Stratton is also forecasting up to 18 inches of snow--which makes sense because on Saturday the Powers Retro Pipe contest is running at Homesick, and what's a pipe contest without dumping snow? Classic East Coast!

This winter has been a roller coaster of warm temps and a lack of frozen precipitation for the Northeast, so this storm is a welcome addition to the season. A true Miracle March for the region.
