Mad River Glen Update on 2/11/16
Localized Lake Effect Storm Re-opens MRG!
10-20" (SERIOUSLY) of fluffy "Champlain Powder" has been delivered overnight and throughout the day and MRG is back in business on Friday! Oh and by the way… still DUMPING and doesn’t seem to be letting up! We have received upwards of 20" of new snow this week so far and not a moment too soon! It’s absolutely blower, the kind of “Champlain Powder” we sometimes get when the lake is unfrozen and the wind hits just right. Weird thing is that there is very little new snow just a few hundred feet in elevation down from the base area – very localized storm – very cool indeed!
And from Sugarbush:
Status update for Thu, Feb 11 1:30 PM
Better be at Sugarbush today, because we've got a full-on powder alert. The squall fall is tall and still dumping, with 3" more today, 8" overnight and 16" in the last 2 days.
We expect powder and packed powder conditions on 84 open trails, with ropes dropping on every trail at Mt. Ellen, except Black Diamond. Spillsville is set to open in the morning and we plan to assess Castlerock for potential opening.
