Recently we've been enjoying the snow any way we can — from powdery goodness to challenging crust. 

This morning after a thaw-and-freeze cycle, it was nice to cross-country ski on groomed trails with an inch of super-soft snow on them! The early bird gets the fluff!

Check out the stake near the top of Mt. Mansfield. The snowpack is about 12 inches less than normal for this time of year. But March can be a terrific month for snow. Let's hope it comes through again this year!

Hope you've been spending time out on the snow, too!

TAKE NOTE!
