    Snow Report- Mt. Mansfield

    I just came off Mansfield after a quick scouting hike up to the summit. Things are looking good for October!

    Only about 4-5 Inches down around 2,300-2,400 near the trailhead.

    Up above 4,000 was another story. I was finding fairly consistent snow around 8-10 inches with drifts of 2 Feet+. I'll tell you it really felt good to sink into snow above my knees!

    The wind was blowing hard and it was near white out conditions up top. I dug a pit to measure some of the drifting.

    There's always snow at Stowe was an old saying back in the days before snow making.

    Some things never change.

    Bring your rock boards and mark up that fresh snow for us! Thanks for the stoke. May you have a great season season exploring Mansfield and the Notch!

    That is just plain awesome!

    As hideously overpriced as the lift tickets are, it's still a great mountain.

    Couldn't agree more, still may be my fav in NE. I haven't been in years due to their astronomical prices, and scarcity of discounts. I'm thinking of joining my local ski club, $10, just to get in on Stowe's ski club/ council appreciation days. You can ski for as little as $31.40, five day, $46, single day. http://www.stowe.com/groups/council/

    Just a couple of things on the lift ticket prices. Yes, Stowe is definitely the most expensive on the east costs. However, if you buy a Vermont Travel Club card (I think I paid $40 for it), you get up to $27 off a regular ticket price. Also, purchasing online can save you some money off the regular window ticket price ($98 compared to &84). Not sure if they will do this again this year, but last year the week after president week was on $54 per day (using your E-card, purchased online). I never heard of the club discount appreciation days, but what a great deal. Now I just need to find a local club in southeastern PA to join. Anyone a member of club down here, let me know. Thanks
