The sky popped blue this morning and we were greeted with a beautiful sunrise. Yesterday’s brief precipitation medley in the morning left us with some crust at all elevations, but up high continues to deliver the best turns. North facing slopes that are staying protected from the wind continue to deliver good turns but overall conditions are quite variable. With powder in the coveted sheltered spots, wind effected and loaded snow in others as well as crust and a firm conditions, be prepared for a wide variety of conditions from top to bottom. Down low is primarily all crust and wind effected, so be ready for some technical skiing. With no new snow to report in over 4 days, you really have to look long and far and explore the many nooks and crannies to find uncut powder at this point, but it is out there. We do have some snow forecasted for this evening as well as a mixed bag of freezing rain, sleet and plain old rain for later tonight. Hopefully the upper elevations will deliver all snow, at least a dense snow that will bond and stick to the present surface.
On the event side of things, don’t forget about our weekly Wednesday Rise and Grind community skin tomorrow at 5:45am in the Midway parking lot at Stowe Mountain Resort. Meet at the Mountain Ops van for a 6am frim departure time. We are also offering free Dynafit ski, binding and boot Demos for tomorrow’s skin if you call us at the shop today at 802-253-4531 and reserve a set up, we will adjust to your boot size and will bring them to the hill tomorrow morning for you. As an added bonus for participating in the demo, you name will be entered to win a free pair of POMOCA SKINS as part of a raffle prize. So try some Dynafit gear, win a pair of skins and get ready to climb the Nosedive headwall bright and early tomorrow with us! Fingers are crossed for a powder day.
