Northern New England's snowfall was above normal during the winter, new research shows.

The period between December 2007 and February 2008 saw some locations post all-time record winter snow totals, according to scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Centre in Asheville, North Carolina.

Overall, it was the coolest winter in the US since 2001. More snowfall may have made for better skiing conditions in certain parts of the country.

Concord, New Hampshire, received 100.1 inches of snow - 22.1 inches above the previous record set over 100 years ago in 1886-87.

Meanwhile, Burlington, Vermont, broke its previous record of snowfall by 6.3 inches - set in 1970-71 - as it received 103.2 inches.

Some of New England's skiing resorts include Stoneham, Whiteface Mountain and Canaan Valley.

According to Ski-Guide.com, Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia still has "great conditions" for skiers and snowboarders despite the arrival of spring.
