A storm is brewing like strong coffee

Friday: The snow banks are triple overhead, it has taken us two days to dig out all the paths from the nordic center, and it is over 20°. What more could you ask for? The backcountry is in pristine condition and the nordic trails have been groomed since that last storm, but not this morning. We are gearing up for a great weekend, so come check it out for yourself.

If you are new to Nordic Skiing the conditions are perfect right now to try it out.  Saturday’s we have group lessons in both morning and afternoon as well as a Explorer Snowshoe Tour.  Sundays we have a Nordic Kids, Morning Clinics and Group Lessons.  There is a lot going on so  come on up and check it out.  Click on the Lessons and Kids and Families Pages above to see full listing of programs and information.

Thursday: It’s all about powder today. . . the snow reporters at Bolton are saying 17-19″ in the last 24 hours. It will take us a day or so to get all our groomed trails back in action… and until then it’s going to be a little soft. The daytime temps in the next couple days and through the weekend look awesome and should help things get packed on groomed trails.

Wednesday: Down in the Champlain Valley it was pretty quiet this morning, but the realization about how big this storm could be came on the drive up the mtn road when I heard the laundry list of school closings from Addison to Franklin Counties. At the top of the hill at 1800″ it’s windy, snowing and 12 degrees. We decided to take in the flag for fear that it would take off in the wind.

The most exciting part of today is knowing how GOOD the skiing will be Thursday and Friday… and for t hat matter all weekend. I am planning to pay my bills, do my errands and be ready for some fantastic skiing this weekend.

This volatile weather is forecast to dump 10″-15″ with locally heavy snowfall up t o 22″ says they Eye On the Sky. Today conditions are powder on packed powder and windblown snow. We will not have any new grooming today.

Skiing is the new road bike training. It’s a fact that bike racers from Boulder to Boseman and of course Burlington like to do ski training and racing to keep in shape during the winter. But check out this article on Velo News about the Kelly Benefit Team skiing Winterpark. click here

Tuesday: We have heard reports over the past couple days that there is a good sized snow storm heading for VT!!! It is difficult to tell if we will be on the More side of the Less side. But none the less it sounds like 6-10″ of powder. Friday ski day anyone?

Stay tuned for our snow report and photos.
