Playing in the soft snow before the rain comes

Skier makes a turn through powder in the woods

We were fortunate to see fresh snow over the last week, so we took advantage while we could!

We enjoyed the light snow in the nearby woods in northern Vermont. The higher we skied up, the deeper the snow. Check out some of our photos from our ski tours over the past couple of days.

On Saturday morning there were 57 inches of snow at the stake near the top of Mt. Mansfield. Come Tuesday, we'll check that number again. That's because we're expecting spring temperatures and rain on Sunday — at all elevations.

Early Monday morning the temperature will drop at higher elevations to turn over to snow. Let's hope it helps the snowpack recover from yet another temperature rollercoaster ride.

Just another reminder to carpe skiem!
