Bolton Valley Resort opened for the weekend today. While folks flocked to the chairlifts, we skinned into the backcountry to the north of the ski area.
We found a deep snowpack, some open water hazards and thick powder to surf on. The resort was reporting 26 inches of new snow in the last five days. At times I lost my ski pole while pushing in the deep snow. And when I accidentally dove hands-first into the deep powder, it was a chore to extricate myself! It's rather incredible for this early in the season!
