Pretty much bluebird most of the day. Temps 30 -35? Hardly a breeze. Thick undercast to the north.

Test of futility not to be able to ski since the storm due to commitments. Made up for it at
Snow today with limited people and some pretty fine skiing. Skied the North Face natural trails for most of the day. Seems to always deliver for me. Run of the day was definitely Jaws.

After lunch did do some natural runs off the front which were in great shape also. Amazing frozen solid base across the whole hill. Can’t remember anything quite like it this early in the year. Unless a severe blowtorch hits, southern Vermont is good to go!



Chute had a weird combination of whales and small bumps throughout. fun and kept you on your toes:





The token photo toward Somerset Resevoir:




Found uneven bump fields at various locations on all the Natural trails. No seeding here.................




Olympic:





Plummet:




Jaws:



Looking up lower Lodge. There were some decent small bump lines on the Front Face natty's also.

That storm with the foot plus of snow and some serious crust that hit Mount Snow last week, while a royal pain for the mountain ops folks with respect to keeping lifts operating safely was about as perfect a base snow set up for natural terrain as you could ask for!

Look for Mount Snow to be very close to 100% open this coming weekend when they are scheduled to open up Sunbrook for the season

Looks awesome Reef! Cant wait for beartrap to open!!

Beartrap and Ripcord went under the guns last night for the 1st time this season! Look for them to open up, weather permitting, by the weekend based on the production they've been getting from all the new low-e guns they installed and the temps predicted the next few days :)
