You may have heard about the massive lake effect storm hitting upstate NY right now. What you may not have heard is that Vermont also got hit with about a foot of snow from the same system.
The skiing at Stowe this morning was deep! About 8 inches of fresh on a few inches from the past few days. The snow was light and fluffy. In honesty there was a bit of crust underneath the new snow, but it was still the best turns on the East coast of the season.
We fell asleep on Tuesday night with the plan to do a quick dawn patrol at Stowe. The forecast was for 1-3 inches and our hopes were pretty low, but we wanted to get out and see the sunrise and move our legs. We woke up this morning at 5:30 am to 3 inches at the house. We got excited and pulled into the dark and unplowed Stowe parking lot 15 minutes later.
The skiing was so good I took an additional 2 runs! And at that, I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
