April 24, 2017 – Closing Day Report
And that’s a wrap! Yesterday marked the closing day for Stowe Mountain Resort for the 2016/17 season and boy what a season it’s been! We’ve had some incredible snow, plenty of powder days, the mountain held a solid snowpack all year long despite a couple thaws, and it really was a year to remember at Stowe Mountain Resort.
There’s still a ton of snow up there, so we’ll be keeping this report updated as we get on the snow. We encourage anyone still itching to take some turns to grab your touring gear and get up there. These warm spring days are a great time to get out and earn your turns. You’ll plenty of snow, especially on more sheltered trails like Nosedive. Even trails that receive a lot of sun exposure, however, are still holding snow nicely. With any luck we’ll be skiing well into May and beyond.
Closing day yesterday was filled with sunshine, smiles, and soft snow. Many skiers and riders commented that it was one of the best closing days they could remember thanks to the perfect weather and impressively deep snowpack. As our team gets on snow this spring we’ll be sharing conditions and where the deepest snow is. For those of you ready to hang up the boots for the season and switch to more traditional warm weather activities, we’ll see you next season!
