A lot of sun and SOME great skiing

Good Morning, We have been out tilling some trails and there is surprisingly decent snow cover out there considering the deluge we had Thursday night and yesterday morning. The trails overall have some good coverage but ARE interspersed with some small, occasional bare spots that one will have to negotiate if you want to ski. Definitely not a race ski day. If you want to get outside in the sun, listen to the birds that have come back to town and take in the beautiful scenery then today will be a great day to pick your way down a trail and enjoy the outdoors. We will have a full trail count in a few hours once we are able to check out all places but I do expect to have about 10-15 KM of skiin

Ahhh the weather that's why we live here!

Good Morning, It is a tid bit gloomy out there for sure. We received a real good shot of rain overnight and it has definitely reduced our snowpack a touch. Never fear however. The trails for the most part from what I have seen, still have some great coverage and I am cautiously optimistic about squeaking at least one more weekend out of the white stuff we have out there. I may have to "draw outside the lines" with the groomer tomorrow, but things are supposed to freeze up overnight and then rebound into the mid thirties tomorrow. There are temperatures in the mid thirties forecasted for tomorrow and there will be ample sun. After a groom out on some select trails, the snow should, and then w

Another spring day with great skiing

Good Morning, We remain 100% open and all trails have excellent coverage. Grooming operations will be paused for the day due to the fact that it never refroze last night. That being said we groomed about 30 KM of trail yesterday and it was hardly skied yesterday. The skiing will be great today. I managed to get out on the trails with my family last evening for an amazing soft, squishy and fantastic classic ski around 5 ! The snow has cooled off overnight and has firmed back up some. It will not take long for it to soften back up though so the best skiing will be this morning. It is a great day for a spring classic ski! The ski shop is open 9 AM - 5 PM.

Smells like spring out there today

We got a gentle shower overnight and it has loosened up the snow pack for some great spring skiing today. We have groomed out some core trails today for both skate and classic technique. Including trails # 2, # 3, the # 4 loops all of # 5, # 7 and # 7a and trails # 11. A total of around 30 KM. We have some rain coming in on Thursday night with up to 1/2" of precipitation by Friday morning. The snow pack is holding up great and coverage remains excellent on all trails. I think that we will at least get one more weekend out the March gift of snow we received. Hopefully two more ! We are open 9 AM - 5PM today. See you soon!

Yet another day in paradise

Another beautiful day in the mountains. Calm wind and a nice swath of high pressure still hanging over our great Green Mountain State These are the days at Ole's that keep us in there, despite the less than ideal days that keep us wondering. All trails remain well covered and 100% open. Things are frozen this AM but will soften up and prove to be some sweet skiing. It's going to be a good day. Yesterday was awesome, and we had a few pass holders trickle in and out. I would highly recommend coming up and enjoying the trails today. The sweet snow spot should prove to be anywhere from 10 AM - 2 PM. There is a shot of rain is coming in on Thursday night. It does not look like anything too dramat

Today will be the best spring skiing of the year thus far

Good Morning, With trails 100% open, coverage STILL amazing, blue bird skies and so far no wind, today will prove to be the best spring skiing yet this year. In several actually. In typical fashion, all trails are locked up firm as of first thing this AM. Once that sun comes up, melts up the trails and does its thing we will have some prime spring conditions. My best guess is that the "corn": window will be from 10 AM- 2 PM. The sun is already up and is feeling really warm. Come get it while it is here. These are absolutely the best kind of days to come to Ole's for a ski or a snowshoe. The scenery is amazing and you will have the place to yourself..... Almost. These are the gravy days as t

Another great day of skiing

Good Morning, The trails froze up firm last night and the groomer is being run around the skate lanes giving it a comb. A good track was set yesterday I'm most places. It has a fresh coating of snow in it. An early morning skier could score one of the last days of classic waxing with V30 in the nice track we have out there. Temperatures are supposed to be a high of 35 today. Currently there is good bit of cloud cover and if the sun can't burn through, the snowpack will take a while to soften up. I would think the best window of skiing would be anywhere from 11 AM- 3 PM. All trails are open and have great coverage. Shop is open 9 AM- 5 PM today.

Skaters dream out there today

Good Morning, Another Saturday and the skiing remains fantastic. The skiing may not get as "springy" as yesterday but the trails have been tilled and things are for the most part soft and edge-able. Temperatures are supposed to hit the freezing mark this afternoon and if the sun can make it through the clouds then things will become even softer even more quickly. Folsom Brook, Cold Springs and the Bundy trails were groomed yesterday when the temps were above freezing. I would think that only one with "True Grit" should ski it before things soften up enough to make it more "corny" then icy. Down in the brook and other northern facing aspects actually have remained on the powdery side and will

Another day with Blue Bird Skies.

Good Morning, Blue skies, warm temps and great snow is the name of the game today. Spring skiing is here and this morning I saw my first Robin of the year and heard a Tom turkey singing his heart out. Re remain 100 % open and the coverage is excellent. Things froze up last night and once temperatures and the sun do it's thing we will have some excellent corn snow to ski on. The day will start with hard snow and finish soft. In the middle will be the best skiing. We have done some grooming but the best skiing will be any where from 10 AM- 2 PM. I would think that things will soften up quickly once the sun gets over the ridge. Once that happens all trails will be skiing fantastically.

Cold start but spring skiing here later today

Good Morning, We had 22 degrees here at the center this morning. Temps are supposed to rebound today to 34 degrees. Where the snow was warmed by the sun yesterday and did some melting it is going to be firm untill the warmth of the day does it's thing. W here the snow pack was shaded on northern aspects or in the woods the sun did not melt it as much and it should prove to still be somewhat powdery. When the ambient air temps reach the above freezing mark we should be into some fantastic spring skiing. Coverage remains excellent and you can not beat the weather here. These are truly the "cake" days at Ole's. Come have a ski or snowshoe. See you soon!

Blue Bird skies today, 100% open

Good Morning, We have zero wind and the temps are supposed to climb into the upper twenties by around mid day. The skiing does not get any better. Come ski things are fantastic.

ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE

Good Morning, Another day in paradise and we remain 100% open in this month of January....oops I mean mid March! We had 5 degrees below zero here at the center this morning and it DOES feel like January rather than March. Well... better late the never. Skiing is awesome, and everything is skiing sickly and as Bill once said to Ted It's BODACIOUS! Thats all you need to know. Come up and have a tour or a snowshoe. You won't be disappointed. See you soon

Good Morning, It is going to be an amazing day here at the center. We are 100% open and the sun is out. We have crystal clear skies and the temps are very Nordic. It is a chilly start but temps are supposed to rebound to 20 degrees by around mid day and with the abundant sunshine it is going to be a great day for a ski or snowshoe. Come up and enjoy the trails. This is the best late season skiing that we have had in quite a few years. Hope to see you soon.

100% OPEN AND FEELING FINE

Good Morning, Today will feature excellent snow, amazing vistas and a trail system that is 100% open, packed and tracked for your gliding pleasure. I have attacked the trail system this week and was able to get all trails open. Every thing will be skiing amazingly. You can not go wrong out there today! Mother nature has truly blessed us with some amazing late season snow. It has been a great week and I love to see so many people utilizing and enjoying my trail system. Trail picks of the day will be Trails # 5, #8/12 and #7 and # 6 loop. The outer loop of trail #6 is open and an afternoon skier said it was just fantastic. It is for advanced skiers but anyone else can get a taste of it by avoi

The trails are already in great shape and the conditions will only be improving here with each little flake that falls. It is sure measuring up to be an amazing march. All trails were groomed this AM and it is a firm base with fresh snow on top. After the snow builds up a bit we will bust out the groomer again and freshen some of the trails up. The BKL kids ski club meets here today at 3:30. We finally have some snow for the little squirts ! Come ski and say hello.
