It's April 6 and there's still a lot of snow in the mountains in Vermont!

Backcountry skiing surrounded by snowy branches

We skied in two inches of fresh cream cheese today. We went in the backcountry trail network at Bolton Valley. The fresh snow clung to tree branches, which started to drip while we were skiing. 

The mountain was stuck in the clouds while we skied. And at the bottom of the trail network, the snow got quite sticky with the warm-ish temperature.

Did you know the snow pack is still very deep?!? There are 118 inches of snow at the stake near the top of Mt. Mansfield. We'll be skiing for a while!

Are you hitting the snow this weekend???
