The snow is falling

I don't know whats going on in Vermont but I seem to be getting hit with notices to my phone via Ski & Snow app or seeing pics on FB daily about inches upon inches constantly falling up there.
What's going on? Where did all this snow start coming from suddenly? Not that I am complaining. Headed up to Sugarbush and Stowe this weekend actually

Upslope snows.. wind carrying moisture runs into a mountain and is forced upward, rapidly cooling and creating cloud and precip.

Jay ended up with almost 30 last night and Stowe with a foot or so. I'm actually headed up to Stowe tonight as well... looks like we should at least get something Saturday overnight. Not huge but maybe another 6 to go along with the 18+ that has fallen over the past 48.

Yes.. some decent snow coming again, and some promise on the horizon. What day did you ride Stowe? I was there Fri-Sunday. Mountain was in great shape..A bit hard to see Sunday.

I road Stowe on Sunday. Sugarbush Saturday. A bit hard to see is almost an understatement lol. It was a damn whiteout at the summit on Sunday. At one point, exiting the gondola lift (around like 2:45), I really couldn't see more than about 40-50ft ahead of me. I loved it

I'm going to Stowe on Saturday and Sunday. It will be my first time on an actual mountain so I am extremely stoked. Hopefully great conditions await.

Thanks,

Jason

Ha yeah, I may have understated that a little. I went in the trees for a bit where it was a little better seeing... but the group I was with aren't huge on the woods so we went over to spruce for a few runs which wasn't as tough.

I had a pretty solid low vis wipe out on liftline. Upper section skiers right.. directly under the quad. Was moving pretty well through the moguls, kind of lost my line, couldn't speed check, couldn't really see and literally ate a mogul. Thankfully it was soft.

Should be pretty solid.. they won''t get a ton of love from this system but another couple inches and some wind mid-week and what looks like pretty nice riding conditions for the weekend.

Not sure if its your first time this year or ever.. but spruce is always a nice place for some of the more mellow stuff and is usually quiet.

It is my first time ever. I'm going with a couple guys that have been before but I will definitely take your advice and check out Spruce.

I've only been in Indiana and once in Finland. This should be quite the experience for me.

Thanks,

Jason
