March & April Bring BIG Snow to VT

As we wind down another fun season, below are some fun pics from March and April which saw a total of over 5 feet of new snow making for excellent end of season conditions. Great times were had by all!

One of many nice sunsets from the deck

From Dave: Katherine and I at the lookout tower off Grizzly Bear on 4/8. We had 7” of light powder overnight Friday into Saturday and the trees and bumps had feet of powder blown in. Sunday was perfectly groomed packed powder with temps right around freezing.Katherine attended a Slalom focused training camp hosted by SMS on Saturday with video analysis after skiing. I think I picked up more tips than she did. Awesome weekend.

Rochelle and Lynn, one of our guests, enjoyed snow shoeing out to Lookout Bench off the Keith Trail

Rand, John, and Tom enjoying some wings and beers after a great day of skiing

Rand & Brian at Bromley with Stratton in the background. Right - Jack and Katherine compare heights. He may be taller, but as a racer she's faster on the sloops than probably all of us!

Brian falls into some shrubbery while Aidan looks on as they head into doing some tree skiing

L-R: Aidan, Rand, Tom, Brian and J.D. (Brian's friend) at Stratton on a powder day

Tom's new passion - reading some fine romantic novels given as a gift for his birthday.

Katherine Rocks the Racing Circuit at Bromley

Katherine had her best race at Bromley on Feb.11th.  Out of 45 girls competing, she was in 4th place after the first run and, after reversing the start order, finished out the event in 8th.  Her goal this year was to make the top 10 so maybe rain and fog is her thing. Link to results


Early February brought a couple of feet of snow making for outstanding conditions. Below are a couple of pics taken by a Rand on a powder day.

Christmas Week - Great conditions but frigid temps down to minus 20 during the week did not deter us from getting out and having a nice time with Dave, Katherine, the Reinhardts and T1.

Breaking News.... Bromley had a serious fire in their snowmaking pump house knocking out snowmaking to the entire mountain. Click HERE to read their letter. The latest update has snowmaking resuming on January 8th.

From Rand - Great conditions, no lines, parking in the garage at Stratton, seeing old and new friends, made for a nice weekend of Dec. 16-17. The weekend before Christmas is one of the best as most people stay home to do their holiday shopping. Dave, Katherine, and Rand had a fun time.

From Tom - Thanksgiving weekend - Stratton had 5 trails open and was working on opening more….Black Bear, Polar bear, North American, Spruce and the meadows to the base. What was open was in great shape and Dave, Katherine, Aidan and I had a blast. It was good to get out on the slopes.

With Thanksgiving over, it's now it's time to think about winter
and all the fun that comes with skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and snowmobling.

A MUST for snowshoeing or hiking ! Click here to get a copy.
