Thursday was the day, Kitchen Sink and Waterfall were epic, by Saturday I was on my GS skis, what a turn of events. You missed nothing on Sunday, don't feel bad. Its setup nicely for spring conditions, just wish cheap-ass Vail would keep the Gondola open longer in April like the good old days, but they got their money up front so what do they care? Remember the days when they used to have a BBQ, beers, band, and jump contest at Mid-Way? I miss that.Missed the storm but was able to drive up to Stowe on Thursday night. It sounded like they got about 30" of snow from the storm. Driving up the sides of 91 and 89 had snowfall but I could tell there was a lot of compaction and melt already.
Friday wasn't bad at all and a lot was filled in but I had to search around for some decent pockets of snow and the really good turns. The main runs were chunky and it was a little on the warmer side so there was plenty to turn on but it was work. Some rain came thru mid day but didn't last too long.

Saturday was a completely different story. The warmer temps and even more rain on Friday night firmed things up massively. Scratchy and blue ice in sections so I only did 13k vertical and that was probably pushing it with the flat light and weekend crowd added to the crappy conditions.
More snow came in last night and we should have gone to the mtn but we had to head home earlier than planned so we just did some snowshoeing from the house so the dogs could get exercise before the 7 hour car drive. My guess it was fun there today and with a sunny 40 deg forecast tomorrow will have some very nice spring conditions - oh well - next time

Hunter is amazing on a powder day, best kept secret. If I wasn't in VT I would have been there.
