Spring At Stowe…

This is what the ground looks like in front of the Gondola… wait… I take that back… by now it’s probably dried out.

 

So it’s been a strange spring here in the Northeast. We’ve had unseasonably warm temperatures, just destroying all of the previous records, and it’s been wreaking havoc on the snowpack. A couple of weeks ago we weren’t sure whether or not we’d make it to the official April 22nd close date… but know we’re not sure we’re going to make it to the end of March. As of today the Gondola only has one day left, and the entire operation on the Spruce side will be closed down on Monday. That only leaves the Four Runner Quad and the Lookout Double. 

The thing is… despite the conditions there’s still a lot of fun to be had out there on the slopes. When was the last time you could go skiing in shorts and a T-shirt and were too hot. Yeah… this doesn’t happen often. So, I’d say grab your shorts and your board or skis and get it while the gettin’s good. There’s probably only one week left and after that there’s nothing you can do but wait till next season. 

Later.

Not much left on Gondolier… 

 

 

Lookout  has also seen better days…

 

 

Here’s Liftline still looking pretty good. There are a couple of thin spots, but coverage is pretty good and the bumps are soft and the snow is good

 

 

After a long day there’s nothing like tailgating in the parking lot and enjoying the sun…
