Winter is back

Winter is back. ALL the eastern resorts are getting dumped on. Nice. Mark, you can always fly out to Stowe, or your old stomping ground jay.

LOL. Not to mention that it's in the Northeast. ;-) I'm actually flying to New England on Saturday but I won't be bringing any ski gear.

Then you be missing out. VT could end up with 30 inches by then.

Actually admin should consider taking ski gear if he's going East anyway. But my guess is that when he's done with family business he'll leave immediately.

Yea, we had about 20" of new snow (although hard to tell exactly. Was very windy and snow drifted all around). And it was dense (but not "wet"), wind-driven snow but it should be good for the NE ski areas once they get it all groomed out. Will be cold the next few days and perhaps some more snow on Saturday. Will definitely help the late-season skiing around here. Although I would NOT lug my skis from Utah to ski for a day or two!

I've lugged my skis for a 3 day getaway to Utah for a long time.
And, Stowe and Alta have about the same vertical. Although Alta has 5 times the acreage. Western folk might feel a bit claustrophobic.

The key word there is "Utah".

When you live in the East, any ski trip is a lug. As Larry David once said " skiing, its such a shlepp"..

The reach of this storm was impressive -- even Sutton hit the 40-inch mark. And it doesn't look like cement:

That's trail acreage of 500 or so at Stowe. JSpin will remind us that Stowe is 2,500 acres boundary to boundary. In terms of ski reality, I believe Stowe skis about like a 1,500 acre western area. The local woodchucks will say I'm too conservative with that estimate.
