As if seasonal snowmaking temps and a little Christmas day fresh weren’t a good enough start to the holiday week, Ma Nature had to go and do something like this… and totally redeem herself! Following a whopping 24-hour storm cycle, we’ve seen tons of fresh natural snowfall — over 2 feet at Sugarbush and Jay Peak – across the state as Euclid crept his way over the 8-0-2. (Remind us to buy that dude a beer.)
We got ours yesterday during the heart of the storm on Mount Snow‘s North Face, but don’t worry, we saved a little for you. It was awesome barreling down unplowed back roads yesterday, riding the lift in the driving snow and finding our last lap’s tracks already filled in by the time we made our next run down. It reminded us of how awesome winter can be and brought back that same excitement about the snow we felt as kids. But enough weepy reminiscing.
Peep the 48 hour storm totals on the Mountain Report at the right and grab your powder sticks — there’s plenty of sunny, soft turns out there today so get out and claim yours.
