A spring storm has dumped more than a foot of snow in some areas across northern New York and New England.

Some of the heaviest-hit places are in Vermont. The National Weather Service says North Underhill received more than 13 inches of snow by early Wednesday and Jericho had 12 inches.

The snow began falling Tuesday morning. It's expected to continue through today.

Weather service meteorologists say such snowfall is uncommon this time of year.

The current snowfall has been a boon for skiers in a region largely spared by the massive storms that blasted the rest of the nation during winter. Sugarloaf ski area in Maine still has two ski lifts operating and 24 trails open.

Some schools are closed in northern Vermont and New Hampshire, New York.

Vermont utilities are reporting around 20,000 customers across the northern part of the state are without power this morning.
