Plenty of Winter 'Round Here!



Weather:
We made it through the wilderness, somehow we made it through. Sometimes it's best to just leave the explaining to the Material Girl. Okay, Monday and Tuesday...well, they stunk. Over 24 hours of warm weather and rain was obviously not our idea of optimal skiing conditions. But the great news is, the weather turned around pretty quickly. By Wednesday afternoon the temps were back in the 30s and the snow was a-falling. Thursday morning we woke up to 2 inches of fresh snow with continued snowfall until midday, adding another inch to our total. The weather will stay in the winter zone this weekend. We're looking at highs in the mid to upper 20s with a mix of clouds and sun. 
Trails and Conditions:
Even more to celebrate is the fact that the snow held up nicely under some unfavorable, early-week conditions. On Wednesday we made a strategic move to keep our trail count low. The mountain needed to dry out and grooming would have only done more harm than good. Wednesday night brought a grooming plan that has already paid off and we're currently enjoying the results. We've gone from 11 trails to 49 today. Snow surfaces are a combination of frozen granular and packed powder. The groomed snow especially is plenty soft, while you may find the ungroomed snow to be firmer or more variable. All in all, we're in great shape considering the date on the calendar and what we dealt with this week, so don't miss out on another great weekend on the hill!
Tavern and  Events: 
Both Friday and Saturday night you can catch some tunes in the JMT. Friday the 15th it's The Woedoggies from 8-11pm. The Woedoggies are a 3-piece string band made up of Vermont music veterans who play classic, simple, honest, acoustic country. On Saturday come on out for Bad Dog, featuring a night of original music with band members Joe Byers, Dan Sharp, Tim Gregg and Shane Roya.
Two major events are going on this weekend as well, including the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge on Saturday and Skier and Rider Appreciation Day on Sunday. Join us for both! We also have events every weekend for the rest of the month. Check out our spring events calendar for more info!
