Big Snow Brings Mountains and Sledding to North End [Photos & Video]

After the third monster snowstorm in two weeks, the urban snow mountains in Boston’s North End continue to get bigger and bigger. The snow banks are starting to rival those not seen since “the big one” in 1978. Everyone is trying to dig out and trying to make the best of it such as the big kids sledding down Margaret Street in the video.

Boston has officially set a record for the most snow received during a 30 day period at 71.8 inches! City and State officials have closed most everything through Tuesday, including MBTA train service. Mayor Walsh might even start dumping the snow in the harbor. Get the latest snow emergency information at CityofBoston.gov/Snow.

So, while you’re not going anywhere, enjoy these snow photos in the gallery below.

  1. MATT, You are the Best. Did you get around by Huskies & Sleigh? Both the City & State stated that the Snow was going to be removed, what the hell are they waiting for??????
    Don’t they know there are other streets other than Hanover, Salem & part of Prince. What I want to know is what did they do with our Real Estate Tax Dollars, Lottery
    Money, Parking Ticket Money & they cut out a Trash Day, which has saved them MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. I know there are worse conditions out of the City, I get that,
    but how much more can this Neighborhood endure? They wasted far too much time. They could have filled the No. End Park, Slide Park, the Gassy & St. Anthony’s Playground, etc.
    and everyone could have enjoyed themselves in those locations, and then they could have removed the snow after those places were no longer accessible. This is a very
    thriving City & State, and that is great, therefore, THEY HAVE NO EXCUSES. Enough is Enough.
