Heavy Snow in the Adirondack Mountains on Memorial Day Weekend 2013 [Pictures + Video]

Whiteface Mountain Memorial Day Weekend 2013

Even though summer is still a few weeks away on the calendar, the Memorial Day holiday weekend is traditionally seen at the traditional start of the summer season. It’s a time of year when ‘camps up north’ get opened up for the season. Maybe it’s warm enough for a dip in a lake or pool. Not this 2013 Memorial Day Weekend in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks.

The region is banketed by close to two feet of snow.
