And We’re Skiing Again

Great day for a ski.

Open, 17º at 7am. Forecast high 33º.

Trails will be packed, no tracks set. It is almost rock solid under the new snow. Not the best conditions we’ve ever had, but a beautiful day to enjoy the woods. And quite a change from Wednesday’s 66°.

2 1/2 inches of snow Thursday afternoon. Fell as wet snow, and has now dried out. Ian is in the groomer and is going to see how much skiing he can get you. Turkey, Woodcock and Snow Goose to start. Then adding the Grouse and Goshawk, and the Lower Blue Jay. Check in when you get here to find out exactly where we are at in the grooming process. Our best guess is skiing today and tomorrow, and then day to day, until we get more snow. ...

Spring Skiing, YES!

Some of the work we do when the temperatures get warm and the snow starts to shrink.

Open  42º at 7am forecast high 54º.

A wet granular spring skiing day. We are glad to still be open. 22km. Turkey, Woodcock, Snow Goose, the easier trails. Grouse, Goshawk, Lower Blue Jay and Chickadee (watch for water holes!), intermediate trails. Middle and Upper are open – water spots will get bigger as the day goes by

Is this the perfect powder day? No. Are we glad to still have some skiing, YES! ...

Really, What Are You Waiting For?

Beautiful tracks and another great sunrise.

Open, 13º at 7am, forecast high 42º. All trails are open, 24 km. Chickadee is still open, what are you waiting for?!

Skiing is really good again today. Ian first set tracks and then skied just to be able to take this picture for your pleasure. Thanks again, Ian.

The picture above is on the Lower Bluejay this morning. The picture below is on the Chickadee yesterday. ...

Skiing Is Great

Open. 24 degrees.  6. 8 inches of snow overnight. What a wonderful way to wake up!

Expected high of 35 degrees. The skiing will be amazing. All trails groomed (today!), it is absolutely beautiful.

This is what you’ve been waiting for. Fresh snow. Warm, pleasant temperatures. The trees have snow sitting in the branches. It’s the snow globe look. The snow muffles the sound and the woods are quiet. ...

C and the Flash (photo doesn’t exactly reflect current conditions)

Open, 38º at 7am, with the temperatures dropping all day with a low of 5º tonight. Looks like most of the day we will be at 35º with snow flakes in the forecast for this afternoon. It got pretty warm yesterday, and didn’t freeze overnight. Please check in during the day to day to see if anything has changed.

22km open. Wet, corn snow base. No grooming today. With the temp falling all day, it will get faster and firmer. Again, check in during the day to see if there are any changes. I am hoping The Thunder Bolt Kid can save us from this weather. ...

Spring Skiing

Open, 22km double tracked, 32º at 7am. Forecast high 45º and cloudy. (The picture above is Mary a couple years ago. I like the picture, it makes me smile.)

Good spring skiing. The snow has “corned up” and the skiing is really good. Corn snow is snow with a rough granular surface resulting from alternate thawing and freezing. ...

Nice Spring Skiing

Nice tracks in the field from Feb. 13.

Open, 18º at 7am. Forecast high 40º.

Good spring skiing on 22 km.  The tracks are in and the skiing is noice. 

I am not a Vermonter, but I can spell “noice” like the best of them, by-jeezum. We did not ski on Monday, letting the rain soaked snow dry out and it worked. Tuesday morning it groomed out nicely. The skiing yesterday was good, and today will be just as good, getting softer as the temperature goes up. Give yourself time to ski a couple of hours, it will be worth it. ...
