Happy New Year to y'all! Hope you enjoyed the holidays. Now it's time to get serious about our snow dances!
Northern Vermont got a few inches of snow over the last couple of days. That allowed our closest Nordic center to pack down and rake the trails. So we went and enjoyed an after-work ski.
(Anyone else have a hard time getting back to work on this post-holiday Monday?)
Cold temperatures today have Vermont ski resorts blowing a lot of snow. They are trying to beef up the base while they can. It will get below 0 in parts of Vermont tonight.
Did you see the news about the Covid outbreak at Killington? Remember to mask up and get your shots so we can continue to have a ski season this winter. I recently donned a N95 mask under my buff/neckwarmer while I waited in lift lines and rode chairlifts. It kept my face warm.
Check out our Vermont snow reports page to keep up-to-date on your favorite ski areas, whether they are downhill or cross-country. Also check that page for a link to the SkiVt-L graph of the snow depth atop Mt. Mansfield. (Spoiler alert: It's now well below average.) When you open that web page you'll see a green-filled graph showing the average snow totals through a winter. That's based on data reaching back to 1954. To compare this year, thus far, look to the side for "2021 - 2022" and click on it.
Think snowy thoughts!
