It didn't feel like mid-December today in the backcountry trail network at Bolton Valley. While there isn't a very deep base of snow, there was plenty of light powder to make turns through.
Bolton Valley, with a base area that sits at 2,100 feet, says they've received 15 to 18 inches of snow over the last week.
The Skimeister and I both got our tele on today. It was such fun for our first backcountry outing of the season!
