Busy, busy, busy!
It was so busy at Vermont ski areas today that you might think people hadn't skied in fresh snow for a while or something!
Thank goodness for some snow on Thursday night and Friday! Ski areas around Vermont were reporting between 5 and 10 inches of snow over the last two days.
Some resorts were on social media rather early this morning letting people know that their parking lots were filling up. Mad River Glen let people know they were sold out.
Ski racing is in full swing, too. This included Nordic races at Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton and alpine races at Saskadena Six in South Pomfret.
Knowing it would be a busy Saturday, we weren't at a ski area today. Instead we did a ski tour on an old logging road that meets up with a snowmobile trail. The snow was a dense five inches on top of a layer of ice. We had to skirt around open streams that crossed our path. But the outing was just what we needed. So good to be kicking and gliding with snow-coated trees all around!
Dare I say that Vermont may be in line for more snow this coming week? Let's hope that it pans out! Gotta get more snow in the woods and on the all-natural-snow trails!
