Don't you love it when the National Weather Service reports:
...PERIODS OF MODERATE TO OCCASIONAL HEAVY SNOW EARLY THIS MORNING ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTH COUNTRY...
It's been snowing this week and things are looking white and beautiful again in the Burlington, Vermont, area. The mountains have received several inches of snow over the last few days. Yee-hah!
Burke Mountain Resort sent out a Powder Alert on Wednesday, encouraging people to play hooky from work. Would have loved to, but I've got to pay the bills before hitting the hill this weekend.
Jay Peak is ballyhooing the gift from the snow gods, as they always do, and they are offering a free ski day on Monday if you ski this Sunday.
Mad River Glen is revving up its single chair for what they say will be an "epic ski day." Their marketing folks report: "We picked up a solid 8" overnight. This on top of the 8-10" yesterday, on top of the 4-6" from the day before." Very nice, indeed.
Looks like the Catamount ski touring center has reopened in Williston, Vt. That's good news for Chittenden County nordic skiers.

2/8 POWDER UPDATE
Folks who skied in northern Vermont on Thursday, February 7, were treated to lots of powder. I heard the word “epic” from my coworker.
Grab your boards and go! Here are some stats to tempt you:
- Burke Mountain Resort reports 20 inches of fresh snow since Wednesday.
- Jay Peak reports 24 inches in last seven days.
- Sugarbush says they were hit with 25 inches in last 72 hours.
What's your epic tale?
