Went to Stratton today 12/10

This is for anyone considering going up to VT tomorrow.

Got there around 9.
They had 2 trails opened (one black and one blue) and were making snow on several others.
The snow was so-so, but that was expected from man made snow.
I got some good runs in the morning but there were some rocks and I got a few scratches on my board and called it a day around 1pm.
In short, if you want to go there, go there early and bring a beat up board or consider renting. And expect conditions to degrade rapidly.

All in all it was worth it as I was really itching to get there, but conditions were not that great.

A more recent update: I went there on Wednesday (12-14) and they had 13 trails open, mostly blues and a couple greens and blacks. Snow coverage was pretty good and I only noticed one or two thin spots, no bare spots. As stated above, noticed a few rocks in the middle of the trails and ended up with one or two small scratches on the base of my board, but nothing bad. Snow quality was great and I had a blast. Had 3 or 4 lifts spinning as well. It was a good time overall and I'd probably go again.

Pray for an early start to the season!
