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!

First, let me make this clear: Even though I skied on Stowe's closing day, it doesn't mean I'm done skiing! ;) Saturday night's temperatures looked like they would be cool, and Sunday looked to be…

Late-spring midweek skiing at Jay Peak in Vermont

As fewer ski areas remain open in Vermont, and warm temps continue to melt away our precious snow, it's important to take advantage of nice days to make some spring turns! We flexed some work time…

Boy, that headline has a lot of "S" words! Spring has sprung. Big time. After last week's snowstorm, the weather soon turned warm and rainy. Sunday morning brought sunshine, so it was time to hit…
