Spring has really sprung

It really feels like spring out there now. I have seen a few flocks of geese overhead the last few days and even heard a very eager spring peeper calling last night. The trails still have fair snow cover and if your into a slushy spring ski then today is your day. While things are covered right now, earth tones are starting to surface up through the snowpack and with the warm and wet weather scheduled to come our way over the next couple of days, this could prove to be our last weekend for skiing this season.

Best spring skiing ever....

Today will possibly be the best spring skiing we have ever had here at the center. Have the conditions been this good this time of year before? Sure, but it has been a few years since we have been looking at our calendar, seeing March 28th and all of the trail system is not only open, but it is all skiing as good as it gets. It is a nice reminder of how great the skiing really is here in Vermont and at Ole's. This is my 32nd year living in Vermont, I have seen a lot of winter ups and downs and all though we will always endure the routine wash outs, warm ups and ice outs, there is nothing quite like Northeastern skiing. Trails are groomed up but firm as of 9:00 AM. The sun will work the melt

100% open and tracked for your skiing pleasure today

The trails are still under a deep snowpack and we are experiencing the best late season skiing we have had in quite a while! All trails are open and groomed including the outer loop consisting of trails #9,#10 and #6 which was groomed out fresh thins morning and is only open and groomed out for classic skiing. The sun is out and unlike yesterday, where the temps n climbed enough to soften the snow, the highs are supposed to be in the low forties and the conditions should be quite nice. No Fat Biking after things soften up please. Spring skiing is here. Come get it while you can. Looks like a big warm up and some rain coming in the not so distant future. No complaints though, things are as

I was wrong, we got well over ten inches snow

Yesterday's prediction was way off... Instead of six inches in total, we scored eight inches of heavy wet eastern powder during the day yesterday, followed by another couple of inches overnight of super-light dry powder. There is A LOT of snow out there and it looks more like late January rather than late March. Needless to say conditions are excellent and trails are in prime condition. All of the trails excluding the outer loop will be groomed by mid to late morning, around 25 KM, and then the sights will be set on the outer loop. Things do not get much better out there and it looks as though we are set up for yet another great week of skiing here up at the center. Call with questions. Al

A few inches of classic powder and more on the way, gonna be another epic weekend!

Good Morning all, Wham bam just like that we are looking like winter again. We got a fat inch or two of very moisture laden snow overnight and it is still precipitating out. Things are covered nicely and it is supposed to keep precipitating right through tomorrow morning! The new snow is extremely wet and clumpy as the temperatures are around thirty four degrees right now. Things underneath are not frozen and there is quite a bit of slush and mucky muck underneath. The temps will also cause a period of rain later today. Because of all these factors we are going to hold off on grooming until tonight and tomorrow morning. Grooming now will not only bring all the under lying moisture to the sur

Still some skiing hanging in there and some fresh in the forecast... For Reals??

Good Morning There is still some good skiing to be had out there. The # 5 woods out to the outer fields as well as trails # 11, sections of # 2, as well as trail # 1 all have some great spring skiing to be had. There is an occasional bony or thin section but it is surprisingly nice in most places. There is some potential for some big snows to come in from tonight through Saturday Morning. Wow this has been quite a season. We will be open at least through March 31st and maybe a tad longer if conditions permit. Stay tuned! Call with questions.

Blue Bird skies and great skiing here today

Trails are still skiing very seasonable right now. All open terrain right now has great coverage with just the occasional thin or bony spot. As of this morning things are locked up firm form the ten degrees it was here early this morning. As the sun works its magic the frozen surface will turn into the peel away corn that is always so nice to ski. We had several folks come up here and enjoy the trails yesterday and they were all psyched! The best skiing will be this afternoon. The sun is out and the views are killer. See you soon! Open trails include: -Trail # 5 Through the woods only out to the Repeat Hill section and #7A loop. -Trail #4 is also open and skiing nicely with just a few feet o

Beautiful day and surprisingly good skiing here today.

Good Morning, The sun is out and yes the Ariport field looks a little barren but.... We are still open with great skiing, riding and snowshoeing! I know some of you may think I am full of it, but the trails that are open are skiing amazingly well. Yes there is an occasional spot that is a bit thin, bony, or scratchy but for the most part skiing is fantastic. We even have a very random visitor from the far north come and say hello this morning. A Snow Goose has mysteriously appeared next to the center and is chilling out in the morning sun. Ok. random but what ever man! Open Trails list includes -Trail # 5 Through the woods only out to the Repeat Hill section and #7A loop. -Trail #4 is also

Dusting of snow over night and the skiing is great

A micro inch of snow fell overnight and the temperatures have also dropped. It has resulted in the skiing being great! The trails are firm, fast but have a nice edge-able dusting of powder mixed in on the top. Trails open include: -Trail # 5 Through the woods only out to the Repeat Hill section and #7A loop. -Trail #4 is also open and skiing nicely with just a few feet of thinner conditions to negotiate. -Trail #11 Rock n" Roll is also open and skiing great ! -Trail # 2 Including the Polo Field. -Trail #1 which will ski amazingly Call with questions.

Still some skiing left

Yesterday's shot of warm air definitely took a toll on our snowpack.. There was quite a bit of melting but I have managed to groom out some trails for skiing. This morning's trail report is: Trail # 2 heading north around the backside to the Polo Field section of # 2 and then continuing out to Trail # 11. Trails # 5 through the woods and out to to the 7A, and # 5 Repeat Hill loop, as well as the loops around trail # 4. Skiers can expect really good snow interspersed with some slushy, thin, bare and some icy spots. These spots for the most part are easy to go around and over all the skiing will prove to be some fun spring skiing. If you want to get outside and have a nice leisurely ski while

Springy out there

Good Morning, Spring conditions here today. We are holding off grooming due to the warm temps. As right now, 9AM, the snowpack is hanging in there. We have a really warm day to get through today and with any luck we will be left with some snow to ski on. Time will tell. Trails are open today for now, but once things get really mushy we will probably close trails to help reduce damage. It will make them easier to bing back to a skiable surface once things cool off again. I will update with new news and please respect the closures. The Airport Road into the center is really muddy and has deep ruts. Low clearance vehicles with poor tires won't cut it. Once things freeze up the hardworking town

1" of fresh overnight, things skiing great, saps gonna flow

Good Morning, Even with the warm spring weather coming in today through Saturday, mother nature still squeezed out a pasty inch of snow and gave us one last sweet coating of snow on the trail system before the warm up. Today trails #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #11, #7 out to the two trail #4 loops, as well as Trails #8 and #12 will all be groomed out for your skiing pleasure, The outer loop Trails of # 9, # 10 and # 6 were groomed out Tuesday and should be nice and firm with some fresh snow on top. Every thing is in prime condition and everyone should come up and enjoy the beautiful snow. Temperatures are supposed to soar well into the fifties today and tomorrow. It will remain warm on Saturday and t

A fantastic sunny day in store today

Good Morning, Tons of sun and tons of great skiing are in store for us today. All trails are open and the coverage and skiing remain excellent. I would highly advise to take advantage of these conditions today and tomorrow as the forecast from Thursday night through Friday Night looks a bit ominous. Come get it while it is here. The snow surface will be frozen but once the sun does its thing and turns it into that nice peel away corn snow we all love, the skiing conditions will be unparalleled. Bring your sun tan lotion, sunning mirror and favorite beverage for hanging out on our deck! See you soon. Ski shop will be open today from 9AM-5PM. VALLEY CUP 2019 RESULTS MEN 1. TK Depres 25:22 2.

Good Morning The snow machine is still on and since this weekend we have scored almost 4 inches of fresh snow and it is still coming down at the center as of 8AM.
