The snow's been falling here in Vermont; 51 inches now at the stake

OK folks, while our economic recession is still trying to find its bottom, here in Vermont we're in a rebound of sorts.

After a warm-up around Christmas time, we've cooled off and enjoyed some significant snowfall. The base is growing and that makes me forget about the year-end retirement account report I received in the mail today. Well, mostly anyways.

The word on the street points toward a bullish recovery:

  • 51 inches of snow at the stake near the top of Mt. Mansfield
  • At Killington: 12 inches of new snow in last 24 hours; 17 inches in last 48
  • At Bolton Valley ski resort: 8 - 10 inches in last 24 hours; 13 inches in last 48
  • At Stowe Mountain Resort: 8 - 11 inches in last 24 hours; 13-18 inches in last 48
  • At Jay Peak: 12 - 14 inches in last 24 hours; 20 inches in last 48
  • At Craftsbury Nordic Center: snow depth of 10 - 20 inches; packed depth of 4 - 16 inches; and 5-6 inches of new snow in last 24 hours.

I'll be able to give a first-hand report tomorrow, when I plan to close shop early for an afternoon backcountry ski. The sun is supposed to be shining by then. Sounds good, doesn't it?
