    I meant Roxbury Gap and not Lincoln gap. And yes I sent him over bethel gap.

    so I was primed to come up this weekend but the weather forecast is not so appealing. wtf? highs in the 40's will not be spring skiing.

    re:roxbury gap. I had my nephew meet us up for xmas/new years and I gave him explicit driving directions which he of course ignored and followed the navigation which sent him via roxbury in the snow. needless to say his first trip to the mrv was something of an adventure.

    Let me see, it's gonna snow all week and then be sunny and in the 40's? Probably better then most of the non-March weekends this year! Wish I could get up for it.
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Have to give the Bush a lot of credit as most mountains have pulled the plug and the surrounding competition is not looking as good.

    Jay shutdown Tramside and the Bonnie. Only skiing off The Jet.
    Killington looks like they shutdown everything other than the K1 and Superstar Quad.
    Stowe closed on April 15?!? Not so EPIC!!!

    We have A LOT of terrain open and reopening Castlerock is AWESOME!! Throw in reopening Twist, Moonshine, Mall...pretty sweet considering it is mainly passholders and people using up their Quad packs. Very much appreciated!!

    looking better.

    Current snow depth atop Mt Mansfield
    is 90 inches, thinking by Friday we have a good chance to hit
    100 inches again, which should provide excellent late season
    skiing and riding conditions for people like myself looking to
    earn their turns.

    A couple of comments.

    I have taken every possible way here and usually prefer the Roxbury Gap. But this time of year i take Exit 3 on 89 and the Behtel Gap since it is paved. It takes me 7-10 minutes longer than when Roxbury is in good shape.

    If we knew there would be more people interested in skiing and riding we would be almost 100% open but most seem to be into other things. We will be running Bravo, Heaven’s Gate and Castlerock this weekend. CR will be 100% and we might groom a trail or two up there given the depth. We will have over 40 trails open and the woods are still skiing well. Looks like some snow Thursday and Friday and then some warmer temps and more sun, so I am hoping for some more springlike conditions. We are planning on the umbrella bar and a plaza band on Saturday. Sunday Looks sunny and warmer. I would love to stay open midweek. Can you find a few hundred friends? But, we will reopen next weekend and the next, so please let everyone know.

    Oh! Our annual Stein’s challenge is on Saturday - the last winter mountain event. Time to think about our June Brew Grass Festival.

    Pretty crazy that trails that were closed less than a week ago have reopened at this point in mid-April and that we're still getting new snow. Looking forward to the next 3 weekends! As much as the new snow is cool, I'm ready for spring skiing and am hoping for sun and warmer temps.

    As for Brew Grass, I am excited that my sister and her husband are finally able to fit it into their schedule and coming up from Maryland for it this year.
