Well, the January thaw is on. But luckily we had record snow in December 07 and so far the snow is holding out. The BV online Snow Report says 116″ in 2007 and 145″ as of 1/7/08. We have lost quite a bit in the rain and warm temps Sunday and Monday, but the trails are still covered.
Don’t be scared by the warm temps…. it’s a great reason to ski with no hat and spring gloves. If you come up for a ski this week we recommend skins/waxless in the backcountry and klister/waxless for classic skis or skate skis on the groomed trails.
