Just arrived. Busy. Haven't been to the mountain yet, got in about 5:00 pm. Ran into a couple of boarders at the supermarket who said it was very icy later in the day after things re-froze. There's a lot of snow here, though. Def won't be heading out too early tomorrow,will wait for things to soften up.
Surfinsnow has it exactly right...don't rush to be first in line, give it an hour or so to soften up and things are pretty good. Compared to the rest of vt/nh Stowe is easily in the best shape....really could use a fresh dumping and some consistent cold though.
