    Stratton 11/21/2018

    Date(s) Skied: 11/21/2018

    Resort or Ski Area: Stratton Mountain Resort

    Conditions: Variable

    Trip Report:

    Closed the Dental office early this week to hit opening day at Stratton.

    Went out at 2pm after a morning cruising around on lower mountain with my 6 year old. Even on Yodeler, there was a good amount of ungroomed powder on the sides.

    After I got up top later I realized how much snow had accumulated. The snow was adding up as the afternoon went on. Woods are all in play in between or adjacent to the snowmaking trails. Snow squalls were adding up and the sides of the trails were chopped pow/pow bumps.

    I was expecting to hit a few things as I went into tree land but it was just mostly bottomless powder. OK, maybe hit a root or two but it was super nice for 11/21. Coverage looked mid winter.

    Anyway.....going with the oldest tomorrow early for a few runs before turkey..... Probably see what all the hubbub is about at Magic on Fri super early and then bring the oldest on Sat when the lifts spin.

    Happy Thanksgiving y'all.


    Really great opening weekend here in So VT.

    Sorry the pics are crooked. I'll figure it out later. Time for some bourbon
