Pretty spring ski tour in a bit of fresh snow

  • Woods covered in 2 inches of new, spring snow.
  • Waxless skis and three-pin bindings.
  • Light fleece layers.
  • Wax to rub on skis to keep the snow from clumping.

Mix all these ingredients for a lovely Sunday ski tour!

Here are a few shots from our ski tour at about 1,500 feet in elevation on Sunday, March 26.

There's still quite a bit of snow depth out there. High on nearby Mt. Mansfield, Vermont, the snow stake measures 78 inches. That bodes well for spring skiing!
