Friday and Weekend Conditions

 Sunday Update: More great skiing today.  We have 30km groomed and tracked.  It did get just below freezing last night and there is a dusting of new snow.  Today the forecast for today is flurries through the day and temps around freezing… and for Monday clearing skys and temps in the high 20s.

In the backcountry– the skiing is pretty good.  There is still lots of ice on the trees from the storms last weekend.  It makes the trees in the high elevation trails like Heavenly Highway, Stowe View look like and Ice Palace.  On the trails we have had enough new snow over this past week to cover the crust.  Conditions are definitely varied, depending on what trails you are on and the elevation.  Some place have a breakable crust, while others are pretty hard.  Also keep your eyes out for trees down across the trails– we have cut lots, but there are still more out there.

Saturday Update: No rain here! Plus we got a little snow last night.  Trails are all groomed and tracks are set. Hope to see you this afternoon!

With new snow all week — we have recovered well from the tricky condition last weekend. And don’t be deterred if there is no snow outside your door at home– we have 30′ snowbanks in the parking lot and 40″ of snow on our trails!!!

Today we have 30km groomed and 20km tracked– this includes Beaver Pond, Deer Run, Bobcat, Telemark and all the regulars.

The big question is what the weekend will hold. The weather forecast looks like potential flurries through Sunday, temps in the mid to high20s and hopefully we will get some sun along the way. It’s going to be great skiing.

Event Update: Pond Skimming at BV. The dated is set for Sat April 5. Get out those old skis, Hawaiian shirt and be here for this classic end of season- Spring skiing event. more info
