A warm weekend

Todd testing wax.... red is working well this morning.

Todd testing wax.... red is working well this morning.

Sunday: It was very foggy when I arrived at Bolton this morning, but in the last hour the low clouds have lifted and we can almost see the top of Wilderness lift.  We did have some rain last night, but snow loss on the trails protected in the woods was minimal.

Trail surface conditions are soft granular snow.  We have great coverage, but the top couple of inches of snow is pretty soft.  In the backcountry there is great coverage with soft granular spring conditions.

We are grooming 20km for classic and skate.  Broadway, Picnic, Valley, World Cup, Maple, Deer Run, Beaver Pond… and maybe Bobcat and Telemark.

At 8am the temperature is 35 degrees and the forecast is for warming though the day.  The sun is also supposed to shine later in the day!!!!

Make a Day of It: Today’s spotlight is on the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Cafe and Visitors Center in Waterbury, VT.  Located in the historic train station in Waterbury, this is a great place to learn about the process of making coffee and pick up a great cup of coffee.  Click here for more info.

Beautiful late winter snow.

Saturday: The forecast is for a really nice weekend of spring skiing.  The

Beautiful late winter snow on Picnic Loop.

sun is scheduled to make an appearance today, so get ready.  At 7:30am temps are in the low 30s.  In the past couple days the snow has transformed from packed powder to granular corn snow.  Our trails still have a ton of snow and I think both groomed and backcountry conditions will be great today.  Overnight temps did not get much below freezing, so everything is nice and soft on ungroomed trails.  Groomed trails should firm up pretty well after grooming.

Larry and I are working on grooming this morning- 25km groomed for skate and classic.  The wax of the day is universal klister.

Please check back for updates through the weekend.  -Liz
