We're off and skiing in Vermont!

Have you hit the slopes yet? I plan to go on Tuesday; I'll be sure to let you know how it is. It's nice to see that occasional snow is in Vermont's forecast this week, as well.

This past weekend you could choose between Killington, Jay Peak, Okemo, Stowe and Sugarbush. Mount Snow opened today with a line of people waiting for their first lift ride, and Stratton and Smugglers' are opening Tuesday. More resorts are slated to open this coming weekend. Check my post on <link post when-do-vermont-ski-resorts-open external-link-new-window ski areas opening>opening dates for the latest.

Now, if you sport two X chromosome, read on.

The Catamount Trail is hosting its second annual Ladies Nordic Ski Expo on Saturday, January 9, at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. Two morning teaching sessions will offer skiers the option of receiving ski instruction in three different disciplines: backcountry/telemark, skate or diagonal techniques. Ladies' nordic day

Participants enjoy lunch in the Lodge dining room and the afternoon sessions provide participants with video sessions for those who want to have their technique analyzed, a number of backcountry and trail tours, or more hands-on instruction. Skiers cap off the day in the Lodge for an après-ski social with wine, chocolate and cheese.

Check out the <link http: http news external-link-new-window>Catamount Trail Web site for all the details and book soon -- it sold out last year.

So grateful for new snow! At higher elevations in northern Vermont, we've seen quite a bit of fluffy new snow in the last couple of days. Above 1600 feet or so there's often a decent, frozen base, as…
