A brisk day to say the least, -16F to start the day; temps won’t be climbing just yet, -20F will be the day’s low around 12PM. If that isn’t a problem, we have a whole lot of freshly opened terrain and a bunch of new snow. Over the past 7 days 20” fell on the mountain, it’s been a bit windy as well, however, that wind has been helpful in redistributing the snow into the woods for our enjoyment. So come up for a great day of skiing and riding in Northern Vermont.
We advise you to bring extra layers today. Temps will be negative for the entirety of the day and wind chill will be a big factor as well. Any and all extra layers you could need will be available at Provisions or either Stateside or Tramside retail locations, hand warmers are available in these locations as well.
Today ski or ride on 69 trails serviced by 7 lifts anticipated to spin. Upper mountain lifts are scheduled to spin starting at 8:30AM and include The Jet Triple and The Bonaventure Quad. Lower mountain lifts, slated to spin starting at 8:00AM include; The Taxi Quad, The Metro Quad, The Village Double Chair, The Tramside Moving Carpet and Stateside Moving Carpet. As always, last chair is at 4:00PM.
**Trail and lift status may change today due to weather, we will know more as soon as Patrol and Lift Maintenance are finished assessing.**
Lift tickets for adults (19+) are $79 and kids 6-18 are $62. Tickets can be purchased at both Stateside and Tramside Customer Service Locations.
**Jackie Greene plays the Foeger Ballroom on February 20th. Get the details here.**
