Vermont ski resort count for this weekend: 13

More Vermont ski resorts open

UPDATE: Make that 14 resorts. Mad River Glen announced it will fire up a lift this weekend, as well.

----------

We're having a great December so far in Vermont, thanks to Mother Nature. This weekend Bolton Valley, Middlebury Snow Bowl and Pico Mountain will open — joining 10 other ski resorts in Vermont that are already running their lifts. (<link https: www.skimaven.com post _top>See our updated blog post here for exact opening dates.)

Mad River Glen, which relies heavily on natural snow, is still in wait-and-see mode. They said on their website on Thursday: "We are happy to see a return to colder temperatures and lots of the white stuff. Inch by inch we are getting closer to be able to open. The upper mountain is filling in nicely but the problem is the open water bars and the fact that the lower mountain is still quite thin. We need a bit more to be able to crank up the lifts..."

As for Nordic skiers, you should find a few places open with limited trails and likely thin cover (check on Rikert, Craftsbury, Trapps...). Rock skis are being advised at a couple of cross-country centers.
