It's Monday, April 25, 2022. Let's take a look at which ski resorts are still open in Vermont!

  • Killington
  • Jay Peak — closed for the midweek — will open for April 30 and May 1 and possibly the following weekend
  • Sugarbush — closed for the midweek — will open for a final weekend on April 30 and May 1

With some recent high-altitude snow, Vermont's highest peaks still have some snow. But the lower parts of the ski runs are melting out, as are the natural snow trails.

I decided to make the switch to biking on dirt roads. I need to get ready for mountain biking season! Luckily the roads I was on in Stowe were not muddy. Maybe mud season is passed now? We can only hope!

Early-bird season pass sales are moving along, as well as some resort announcements. Notably, Stowe Mountain Resort will start charging for parking next season on Fridays through Sundays and during holiday weeks. They got an earful on Facebook for that. Vail Resorts has been rolling out paid parking at other ski resorts because they sell so many season passes that on and off-mountain traffic and parking create big problems for ski towns and visitors alike. (It also doesn't help that a few years back they built high-end condos on top of the large Spruce Peak parking lot.) I guess we'll see how all these things sugar out!

We stayed in and worked while the wind whipped up scary wind chill numbers on Friday and Saturday. By Sunday morning, we were chomping at the bit to be back on snow. We enjoyed a nice ski tour in the…

Hasn't it been great to have winter again? We've been enjoying getting out into the snowy woods for ski tours. It's so pretty! Hope you've been getting on the snow, too!

A snowy afternoon of soft turns!

Just a few photos of an afternoon riding the quad at Bolton Valley Resort in northern Vermont. The snow kept falling through the day and I found some fun, rather deep snow. The ski area reported…
