- The Low Lands of Connecticut
Let me preface this by saying I am not trying to be negative but strictly my Observation of my Mount Snow Day. Skied Friday 27th Blue Sky, Light Wind, Beautiful. Conditions excellent even off the Groom only a few spots scrapped down to rocks, surprising for a Friday also whit Boiler Plate later in day. Crowds not bad considering Vermont Kids have the week off. Okay but here it is, after reading the Ski Conditions for the last three weeks (had not been to Snow since Feb 4) saying epic amount of snow over 70 inches since first of Feb I was rearing to get back out, but when I pulled into Parking Lot it was evident No such amounts. I have one of my Ski Poles marked with depth marks on it and when going off the Groomed (so as not to be influenced by snowmaking) I made depth checkes in Glades. The most on average I found was was 30 some inches. I have no idea how they measure to achive 6 foot depths. I always believe no matter what hype a Resort reports divide it by 2. So much for Truth in Reporting.
