"It's not quite over yet." So says Sugarbush ski resort, which will open up on Saturday so they can say that they skied into May. The same goes for Jay Peak resort. Both Vermont ski areas are running a lift and a couple of trails for a spring-skiing ticket price of $25.
Sugarbush will run the Super Bravo lift for skiing on the Valley House Traverse, Stein's Run and Coffee Run. They say that skiers may need to walk a bit at the end of Coffee Run to get back to the lift. They'll be serving up a BBQ so you can get a burger to go along with that corn snow. Resort officials will decide on Saturday whether they will open on Sunday.
At Jay Peak, the $25 gets you a two-day ticket, BBQ and music at the base of the Jet Triple. Sounds fun. Jay is reporting that they got two inches of snow in the last week and that brings their season total to 419 inches. Yes, sir, that's why we are still skiing on May 3 in Vermont!
I'll be picking up trash for <link http: www.greenupvermont.org external-link-new-window external link in new>Vermont's annual Green Up Day on Saturday. Many towns are participating by providing bags and hauling away the trash that always shows itself after a long winter. The state will be spiffed up again in no time!
