No snow at my house, but lots of snow at Bolton Nordic!

It’s amazing how much snow we have at Bolton right now.  Our weather pattern has been very consistent for the last week and it’s more comparable to early February than late March!  There is a great base of snow and with about 12″ of new snow this week on top of the base the skiing is awesome.  The normal spring time obstacles are non existent at this point– NO stream crossings and NO ribbons of snow on the trail.  It’s just plain old boring great skiing!  We want to encourage everyone for get up to this mountain for a couple more skis.

One more sign of spring- UVM Ski Team backcountry practice. On Thursday, they did Raven's Wind on skinny skis.

There are a couple signs of spring up here- daylight is back, the March sun is strong and we are forcing some Hobble Bush and Birch branches to flower inside the Nordic Center.

Today I took photos along the way to work from Shelburne to Bolton on the Hunt for Snow!  Check out the progression:

Is this what it looks like outside your house? Or maybe there is a pile of gross crusty and dirty snow? This is what it looks like outside my house and the Daffodils are up about 4".

Driving through Richmond there is a little more snow!

Prospects looked a little better at the bottom of the Bolton Access Rd . . . some new snow overnight still visible on the road.

On the hunt for snow... at the Bolton sign there is a ton more snow!

New snow on the Bolton car.

2100' in the Bolton base area is covered! I wonder what the trails will look like?

Beautiful dusting of snow on top of early morning grooming!

Old skis with new bindings!
