Conditions SaT 29 and SuN 30-

SuN PM– a day to remember. Sun, warm temps and lots of ski friends.  Today was a great ski day.   In the backcountry there is still some powder in the shady, protected areas . . . and the snow is definitely starting to transform into that great corn snow of spring skiing.

SuN AM- It truly doesn’t get any better than this. At 8am the Sun is out and temp is 10– but don’t be deterred by the temps… it’s going to warm up to 30 by early afternoon. Powder in the backcountry, 30km groomed tracks and 100% of trails open.

The weekend is VT Maple Open House Weekend organized by VT Maple Sugar Maker’s Associaiton. This is a great opportunity to meet Sugar Makers, drink some syrup and watch the steam rise.

SaT PM update: I went out to ski late in the afternoon today and was greeted by lots of skiers on their way back in from backcountry trails. Everyone was so happy to have another powder day and I heard only good reports about conditions. It will be cold again tonight- lows 10-12… so it should be another powder day tomorrow. The forecast for tomorrow is warming temps through the day with at high a BV of 30 degrees.

March has been good to us. We received 4-6″ of new snow Friday and Friday night… and it is a beautiful clear, sunny day. At 9am it is 15 degrees and it’s a little windy (but once you are in the woods the wind will be less). The forecast for today is for warming to 20 degrees. 100% of trails are open– 30km skate and classic groomed. It’s perfect skiing– hard to realize that it is almost April.
