Taber said one reason March has a reputation as the snowiest month is because "we can get some of our bigger storms in the month of March."
"So we pulled it out, which was awesome," he said.

Despite that handicap, Mad River spokesman Eric Friedman said business has improved over a year ago with revenues up "several hundred thousand dollars."
Besides the well timed snowstorms, Hathaway attributed the improvement to increased snowmaking and better grooming something that skiers and boarders have noticed.
One area of concern for the resorts is that the midweek business during Presidents' Week was off from historical numbers, especially for resorts in the southern part of the state, Riehle said.

"Certainly, much stronger than last year and what we're hearing is on par with previous good years for the Presidents' Week holiday period," he said.
"We've had some major thaws in January, which really set us back," Friedman said.
Of the state's ski areas, Mad River Glen in Waitsfield is a rarity relying almost entirely on the kind of snow that falls from the sky. Because the resort has a grand total of three snow guns, it puts the only cooperatively owned ski area in the nation at the mercy of nature.
"Definitely on track to surpass last year," said Parker Riehle, president of the Vermont Ski Areas Association.
If the weather holds up, he said, Magic should be open into April.
to the season, Magic Mountain in Londonderry has seen a pickup in business with a very strong February, said resort spokesman Geoff Hathaway.
won't be answered until March, a month that can be fickle when it comes to the weather. Three of the last four years, March has been a snow bust of sorts. Last year, summer like weather in March effectively put a quick end to the season for many resorts before the month was out.
Friedman said Presidents' Week was "decent." He said business picked up midweek after the ski area received 18 inches of snow.
The ski area, one of the smallest in the state with 43 trails, didn't open until Christmas, then one of its two chairlifts was forced to shut down during the holiday.
With two thirds of the 2012 13 ski season in the books, Vermont's ski areas have already rebounded from last year's disappointing season. The only glitch so far was the hangover from Superstorm Sandy, which curtailed visits during the usual February school break.
Riehle said Presidents' Week was another strong holiday "for visits and very positive numbers," including lodging, food and beverage and lessons.
Riehle said how March plays out will determine whether Vermont has an average ski season or an above average season.
And while March has a reputation for being the snowiest month of the season, January is the snow leader, averaging 17.2 inches, followed by December and February with 15.7 inches.
That was good news because after a record breaking Christmas, January and part of February were rough months.

Jersey had to make up for cancelled school days and "dialed back or curtailed their February vacation periods this winter," he said.

"Since we had the Herculean effort to get that back up and going in January, things have been really very good," Hathaway said. "We could have used a little more snow in January, but February has been just great for us."
So far this season, the state's 18 ski areas have reaped the benefit of well timed snowstorms over the three major holidays Christmas/New Year's, Martin Luther King weekend and Presidents' Week.
So far this season, 65.4 inches of snow have fallen on Burlington, 5.2 inches above normal, according to Brooke Taber, a staff meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
"The mountains and ski areas are doing pretty good," said Andy Nash of the National Weather Service. "They're going to get the jackpot with this storm."
A winter storm last week gave Vermont ski resorts a boost with 7 to 10 inches of new powder.
With 45 trails and two main lifts, including the only remaining single chairlift in North America, Mad River expects skier visits will total between 80,000 and 85,000 for the season.
Last season, Vermont logged 3.9 million skier visits, a number that fell below the historical average of 4.1 million per season and well below the 2010 2011 season's 4.3 million skier visits.
During a normal March, the state can expect to receive an average of 13 inches of snow. Last year was an exception, with March snowfall totaling only 5.9 inches.
He said business at Magic Mountain is running "well ahead of a year ago," which was an off year for the industry.
