Sunday spring skiing, and UVM wins NCAAs!

— Bolton Valley, Alpine / downhill skiing, Ski racing

Very fun to play in the woods at Bolton Valley today!

First, the really exciting news: The University of Vermont ski team has won the NCAA championship! This is their first championship title since 1994. Yes, this has been a long time coming!

We've really enjoyed following the team over the years and watching some of the racing in Stowe. Both the nordic and alpine skiers excelled at NCAAs, but the women probably clinched the deal for UVM. Women skiers from UVM were often in the top five of their alpine or nordic races.

Here are the top-5 ski teams at NCAAs:

U. Vermont – 832 points
U. Utah – 671
U. Colorado – 670
Dartmouth C.– 590
U. Alaska Anchorage – 519

And the other great news was the mighty fine spring skiing that the Skimeister and I enjoyed this morning at Bolton Valley. In the woods there was four inches or so of soft powder — no joke! It was really fun to play in the trees off of the Wilderness Chair. And the weather was warm and sunny!

Get out there and ski while it lasts!

I like to keep my eye on the weather — especially this time of year. We had that wonderful dump of snow last week. It was then followed by some rain. Looking ahead, we may see rain again on Thursday.…
