Two feet of snow or more: great for skiing, and sled dogs?

Fresh snow and sled dog racing, too!

This storm has dropped about two feet of snow on many Vermont ski resorts thus far — some are reporting more. The weather is affecting lift operations here and there today, so check my Vermont ski resorts snow conditions page. It has direct links to the resorts' ski report pages.New snow at Sugarbush, Vermont

This stuff is really helping to beef up our base. So happy!

I'm planning on skiing on Friday, so I'll let you know where I end up and you can be sure I'll post some photos and a recap.

Meanwhile, this weekend also brings a fun event over at East Burke, Vermont — home of Burke Mountain Resort. It's the annual Burke Sled Dog Dash and it benefits the children in the Northeast Kingdom. They are putting the proceeds toward building a community center for the kids.Sled dog racing in East Burke, Vermont

Racing action takes place on both Saturday and Sunday on the nordic trails of Kingdom Trails in East Burke. Spectators' children also have the opportunity to participate in the one-dog event if they have a helmet. Cool!

I wonder if the dogs and mushers like having this much new snow?

Woof.
