The United States Weather Bureau reports favorable conditions for weekend sports enthusiasts. Increasing cloudiness will settle over all New England with snow expected to fall over Northern sector today (Fri.) or tonight. The supply of snow around Boston which was heavily crusted last week may be covered with the same blanket of snow that skiers are waiting for up North. However, there is a chance that showers will make the prospects in the Southern part of New England gloomier. The temperature throughout the New England States will drop slightly, but will remain around the twenties during the nights. More snow will fall next week in the northern states, providing better skiing for next week-end.
With the coming of New England's greatest snowfall in several years, enthusiasts are looking forward to excellent skiing at all New England sport centers. In contrast to last year's conditions which were universally terrible, reports coming in from the mountains this year give promise of enough skiing for the rest of the year to satisfy even the most rabid enthusiasts.
In order to satisfy those skiiers who have no means of transportation to the mountains, the Boston and Maine Railroad is running fifteen snowtrains to New Hampshire and Vermont, leaving around noon Saturday and returning late Sunday.
In addition to good skiing facilities, there is also excellent snowshoeing and ice-skating.
