"Real snow is a thrill," said Jerry Cyr, who has been skiing for 47 years. "We don't get that much in New England. When we get a big storm like this one, we're thankful."
Christoper Loftus of Berkshire East told 22News that skiers have reason to be excited.
"All skiers live for powder days, and it looks like we'll have some really good powder days coming up and we're excited about that," Loftus said.
