Skiers and riders heading out to Mount Snow in Southern Vermont this Christmas week will not see anything like they did last year.
There is snow and plenty of it!
In addition to the almost two feet of natural snow in the past few weeks, the snow making crew has been hard at work covering the trails. Fan guns and ground-mounted guns were belching the white stuff all over the mountain leading up to the holiday break.
One skier remarked on the lift that right before Christmas Eve last year there was a small path of snow about two feet wide from Cascade to Canyon. Not so this year; full coverage.
Plenty of exceptional corduroy was prepared for those lucky enough to get out early. Long John from top to bottom was all “corded up” and held up all day.
Over in Carinthia, the coverage was also good with many features and jumps in place. “The Farm” seemed to bloom over night and was packed with its barnyard best features.
Guns had been blazing over on the North Face with over a foot of man-made powder on Challenger which made for some great bumps late in the day.
More work was needed Sunbrook Area but it was coming along. There was full coverage on Cloud Nine and Thanks Walt.
Let us all hope that the weather we have had so far continues. There is still significant pent up demand after last season.
Great out and enjoy the skiing and riding where ever you can!
