Bring Sunscreen.

Skies are partly cloudy this morning, and the mercury is already creeping into the mid-50s; we’re expecting today’s high somewhere around 75F. Ski or ride this morning on 16 trails with 2 lifts spinning to get you there. The Jet Triple is slated for a 9:00 AM start, with the Taxi Quad spinning starting at 8:30 AM. Last chair today will be at 4:00 PM. Snow conditions will be very soft and surf-like, and sounds like our Grooming fleet did minimal maintenance in the night, in an effort to protect our late-season snowpack.

With just shy of 500 inches of snow for the season, we are now one of only two resorts in Vermont still spinning the lifts seven days a week. And despite warm temps and the occasional sogginess, we expect to keep skiing and riding until May 7 (maybe even longer depending on if any of us up here are still standing and can turn on the lifts.)

End of season lift tickets are currently $35 for Juniors ages 6-18 and $49 for Adults ages 19+.

TRAM AND SPRING LIFT UPDATE: The Tram has closed for the winter season. The upgrade project is underway and the Tram is scheduled to re-open this summer. Stay tuned for video updates of the $5 million project throughout the spring. As for the rest of the lifts on Tramside......they're closed too. The Stateside area of the resort will remain open seven days a week until....well, until we're tired of skiing and riding.

Looking to stay with us? Spring lodging rates are $115 for 2 people and $135 for family of 4.These are valid April 27-29 and May 5-6. Give a call to our Reservations Team at 800-451-4449 to learn more.

First Flakes

By Andrew, on Mon, Feb 16, 2015

Growing up with four seasons grants direct entry to several different sides of nature throughout each year. For those of us raised in them, we become accustomed to the cycle as an embedded part of our lives, but to those looking from the outside in, seasons are something to be sought out and engaged. 

Can we look back and remember our inaugural winters? Moments like that first flake touching down and melting on exposed skin, or the first handful of snow impulsively squeezed into a ball? These moments may marginalize as our minds bury them in time, making it difficult to recall the very first snow in our lives, but we can remember the ways we enjoyed it. Experiences like building forts and digging tunnels into snowbanks or trudging through the deeps to pack down a sliding trail as it stretches further with every pass; it's these cultural customs that stick to the head and the heart.

Although we can't physically go back in time to relive those first experiences, we can appreciate them through the eyes of others. Recently, we had the pleasure of meeting the Castro family. Residing in Florida, Steve and his wife Cindy decided it was time to take a family trip with their two children, Olivia and Andrew, to show them winter for the first time. We caught up with the kids at the moving carpet for some of their first turns on snowboards, and here's what they had to say about winter.

JPR-             What was it like feeling snow for the first time?
Andrew-      "It's nice and fun. I think of it as cold sand."

JPR-             Cold sand huh, never thought of it that way. What are some things you like about it?
Andrew-      "I like making snowballs, and I get to throw them at my sister."

JPR-             Are you going to miss it when you leave?
Andrew-      "Ahh, probably."

JPR-             What's it like being in snow for the first time?
Olivia-          "Cold, it's cold, really cold. I'm from Florida so..."

JPR-             What have you done so far?
Olivia-          "We built a snowman, went sledding and snowboarding, and I like to have snowball fights. I had one this weekend."

JPR-            So it's cold and you've tried a few activities now, what do you think of snow?
Olivia-         "I like it. You don't get hurt in it."

 

As we grow, our memories build around experiences that in turn shape our perceptions of the world and how we act in it.  When we think back to recall early moments in our lives, our minds tend to reconstruct these pieces of the past based on our present perspectives, so our memories are subject to change in time. The word memory originates from the Latin term memor, meaning "mindful", and if we don't remember our first snow, it's ok. As long as we stay mindful of our collective winters, we can continue traditon and trigger old memories, while making new ones together in the snow.
