What's Happening This Weekend

Spring Thing Weekend and Pond Skimming, March 25-26

 

There are few words to describe what the past few days have been like. Winter Storm Stella rolled in with a vengeance Tuesday with copious amounts of snow. It may have passed now, but not before leaving behind a jaw-dropping 58". The Weather Channel has pegged us with the highest snow totals in the Northeast from the storm. I may be young, but personally I've never come close to experiencing the deepness of the snow and face shots that were to be had yesterday. Myths of powder that's so deep you have trouble breathing have been uttered in the James Moore Tavern before. But yesterday that myth became a reality. Thanks to another 13" last night, conditions are fantastic once again. Check out this video that was shot today.

I want to say a special thank you to all the people behind the scenes that got the mountain accessible and up and running both yesterday and today. From Groomers, to Ski Patrol, lift-operations, lift mechanics, plow drivers, maintenance members and everyone who helped shovel yesterday. It was truly a full-on Bolton Valley effort. Case in point, as I walked down to my car, shovel in hand there were several people already working on it. I can't tell you how many people were offering to help shovel or give a quick tow. Moments like that remind me why I'm so happy to be a part of this community.

See you on the hill,

Tucker
