Southern Vermont ski resort improvements for 2013 - 2014

Recently we recapped central and northern Vermont ski resort improvements for the 2013 - 2014 ski season. Now up: ski areas in southern Vermont. Here are some changes you can expect this winter.  Bromley Mountain Bromley invested in some new snowmaking guns, pipe, an air compressor and a Prinoth BR350 groomer.

A pastor skis downhill with his guitar.

Easter is hopping closer! This year it falls on Sunday, March 31. Vermont ski resorts often have Easter-themed events to get families out on the snow. Some ski areas also hold mountain-top sunrise services, where you can get some first tracks after the service. Call or visit the ski resort websites to confirm that the details haven't changed!

Snowstorm on the last day of official winter

March 20th is the first day of spring and we're in the midst of a snowstorm today, the 19th. While some folks are lamenting more shoveling, we skiers and riders are psyched! This morning Vermont ski resorts were reporting 2 to 9 inches of snow had fallen already. Today the snow continues. The National Weather Service is forecasting a foot or more of snow to fall in many Vermont mountain areas by Wednesday morning. I love seeing double digits on their snowfall...[Read more]

Snow, sleet, rain and Catamount Trail coupons

Well, elevation means everything this week in Vermont. While many towns and villages and base lodge areas have seen rain and sleet, there's been a mix of snow, sleet and rain up higher on the mountains. Yesterday morning 2 to 5 inches of new snow were being reported at many Vermont ski areas. And this morning a couple more inches were being reported at the tops of some peaks. Middlebury Snow Bowl, Sugarbush, Stowe, Jay, Bolton, Burke and Killington were among those reporting snowflakes this...[Read more]

Improvements in snowmaking, trails & facilities at Vermont ski resorts

Last season featured new chairlifts at three Vermont ski resorts (at Burke, Mount Snow and Stowe — read about it here), while this year only Jay Peak has a new lift. Investments were mostly steered toward snowmaking, trails and facilities at Vermont ski resorts for the 2012 - 2013 ski season. Here's a look at on-mountain investments that you'll see this season. Bolton Valley no on-mountain improvements announced Bromley Mountain base lodge renovations for the upcoming season60 new HKD...[Read more]

Farmers’ markets in Vermont's ski towns

Farmers' market in Stowe, Vermont

It’s veggie time in the mountains of Vermont! Vermont's ski towns are among those that have weekly farmers' markets when the snow is not flying. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture produces a handy website that has a statewide schedule of many farmers’ markets. The list includes these markets which I selected because they are located somewhere near a Vermont ski resort or ski town that you may be visiting during the summer months: Northern Vermont Farmers’ Market Schedule In/Near Ski...[Read more]

With whacked-out, summer temperatures, the season is winding down

Vermont has experienced summer-like temperatures over the last week. We've been wearing shorts and t-shirts. The sun has shone brightly as well, and while this makes for lovely weather to recreate in, it hasn't been kind to the snow. Some ski resorts have thrown in the towel for the season, while some others will call it quits this weekend. Some mention that bare spots can be encountered any time and walking may be required at the top and bottom of trails. Others mention that...[Read more]

A few inches of fresh snow, and three more ski resorts are slated to open

Snowy view of Okemo ski resort, Vermont

One to seven inches of snow fell around the state on Wednesday night to help make things look a bit more wintry in Vermont. Today and tonight some areas will see snow showers. Dipping temperatures have helped with plans for three more ski resorts to spin their lifts for the first time this weekend. Bolton Valley Resort plans to open Saturday, as does Mount Snow. Bromley Mountain plans to open on Sunday. Mount Snow will celebrate the "first flight" of the Bluebird Express, its...[Read more]

Farmers’ markets in Vermont — veggies (and more) in the mountains!

After a snowy winter and wet spring, we are enjoying farmers’ market season in Vermont! At recent markets that I went to I saw lots of leafy vegetables, tomatoes, beans, peas, beets and more. Can’t wait until the sweet corn is out, too! The Skimeister and I started our garden a bit late due to an extremely wet May and some early-June travel. But with some recent heat and sun, things are really starting to grow (eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, for example). But I’ve been picking up...[Read more]

When do Vermont ski resorts close this spring (2011)?

Updated 5/10/11 I've been checking in on the dates that Vermont ski resorts are closing. Typically the smaller ski areas close first because of lower elevations and smaller operating budgets. This is not a complete list because the ski resorts don't always announce their intentions in advance. Please check the website of the resort you'd like to go to before you head for the hills! We have links on our Vermont ski resorts page. Closed as of March 30: Pico MountainMt. Ellen side of...[Read more]

Mountain improvements at southern Vermont ski resorts Bromley, Magic and Stratton

Snowmaking improvements on tap at Magic Mountain.

This season it was challenging to get information on Vermont ski resort mountain improvements. You see, I like to write about the on-mountain, skiing-related improvements because those apply to all skiers and riders, whether or not you are dining at or staying overnight at a resort or not. While this year there are some serious dollars being spent here and there on slopeside lodging, ice rinks, mountain coasters and art centers, the skiing-related improvements are fewer and farther between.Is...[Read more]

When do Vermont ski resorts open?

Snowboarding at Vermont's Bolton Valley Ski Resort

<<FOLLOW THIS LINK FOR THE 2014-2015 POST ABOUT OPENINGS>> I received a list of Vermont ski resort opening dates in my email, as reported by Ski Vermont. Of course, these may change, depending on the weather. As you may know, Colorado's Loveland Ski Area was the first to open in the country. They loaded their lifts with skiers for the first time on Wednesday, October 7. (Can you believe it?) It was their earliest opening in 40 years. We're closing in on the 2009/2010 ski...[Read more]
