Thank goodness! Winter has returned to northern Vermont after several days of early springtime.
Last night the rain turned over to snow as the temperatures dropped to be seasonal once again. Ski resorts picked up about 3 inches of snow overnight. This morning it was 5 degrees at the top of the mountain at Smugglers' Notch. Welcome back, Old Man Winter!

This is a holiday weekend, so you won't find many ski discounts as you head out for the slopes. Still, if you haven't checked out my <link post ski-ticket-discounts-for-vermonters-and-vermonter-wanna-bes external-link-new-window>post about Vermont lift ticket discounts lately, you should visit. I'm updating it through the season.
I like a good skiing deal just as much as the next ski maven!
A few of the updates include:
- St. Patrick's Day and April Fools Day ski deals at Mad River Glen
- discount Smugglers' Notch vouchers from area ski shops and $15-off Business Mondays
- advance-purchase ticket discounts at Killington
Have a great weekend on the snow! I'll be with friends doing some nordic skiing in the Northeast Kingdom. I'm hoping they groom the cross-country trails really, really well.
