With 9-11” of new snow today, and snow still coming down it looks like we are gearing up for quite the weekend of skiing. Nordic today had tons of really good powder; it is prime backcountry skiing wherever you go. Saturday, we are expecting early flurries turning to partly sunny skies, colder temperatures in the low single digits and below freezing, with winds from the NW at 25-40mph.  

Tomorrow morning once all the snow settles we'll have a chance to groom the trails and set more track. Until then, I'd suggest renting a pair of snowshoes or taking a skin up into our backcountry where the lines are steep and deep. I've heard a few good things about Stowe View lately. The wax of the day will be Polar.
