It Snows and Then It Melts. It Snows and Then It Melts.

Wild Wings Trail Map

We will not be opening again for the weekend. 

Prospect Mountain, in Woodford, VT, east of Bennington on Rt 9 is still open. They had double the snow that we did during each storm in March. Ian, Heather and Graham skied at Prospect on Wednesday and had a great time and a great ski. They said the snow is great.

Season pass holders can ski here at WWXC…no grooming, and sticks and debris and bare spots exist but the skiing is pretty nice. ...

Middle Blue Jay, the first mess.

We lost part of an old grandfather maple on the Goshawk and another huge!!! sugar maple uprooted and tipped over. ...

This is going to be a fun summer, filled with more changes!! ...

Let Spring Begin!

Closed, 15º at 7 am and sunny. A blue beautiful sky. Forecast 35º and partly sunny.

Every skiing grandparent wants to be able to bring the grandkids skiing!  And everybody both admires and is a little sad when the older person can’t keep up anymore. Ian was in second grade when he could ski faster than me. But even to this day, he slows down and just skis with me as we chat. When he was 8 we probably talked about how much he wanted a Nintendo. Now we talk about which trees should stay and which tree, when removed, would improve the skiing. ...
