Kinda depends on what elevation you're at.

12/19 info from the DEC... "TRAIL CONDITIONS: Trails are covered in snow and ice and may be very icy, or covered in deep snow in higher elevation areas. Many stream crossings are not yet frozen and waters are running above normal for this time of year. All hikers should carry traction devices for use on icy trails and at water crossings, and snowshoes above about 2,500 feet (where there is now 8 to 18 inches of snow in some areas) and everywhere in Southern Herkimer and Lewis counties (where there is 6 to 10 inches of snow). In the High Peaks, snow depths range from 24-36 inches above 3,000 feet, requiring the use of snowshoes. Ice is present on exposed outlooks and summits above tree line. There remains dangerously thin ice on many waterbodies, and some waters remain open."

I've generally found the WeatherStreet snow model maps to be pretty accurate- with the exception that it does seem to take ~24 hours to finish updating after a significant storm.

Thanks.

I was trying to also check out present satellite photos but couldn't figure out how.

yesterday the jackrabbit trail to Mackenzie pond in Saranac Lake was barely ski-able with roots and rocks sticking up, while the bloomingdale bog trail was very nice skiing with one wet spot, though I didnt measure the snow depth off trail. Paul Smiths is about 15 minutes away has significantly more snow. The Jackrabbit trail from Jones Pond rd to Paul Smiths VIC had about 8 inches of powder on an icy base when I went on the 18th. I suspect it's still great skiing out there.
