March 13, 2018 – Morning Report
Here we go again! Another big storm has arrived in Stowe and it’s now snowing steadily. This snowfall is expected to continue through Thursday and the current forecast is calling for 14-32 inches by Thursday evening… and it’s not even necessarily supposed to stop then. Snow showers could even extend through Friday night, although it appears the storm will be tapering off by then. Just today we’re looking at 3-7 inches, so conditions will change throughout the day.
To start the day conditions on the groomers were perfect packed powder. Liftline and Nosedive were both groomed last night for those looking for smooth steep turns. As the snow continues to fall throughout the day that groomed corduroy will start to get buried by powder, and by the afternoon there likely won’t be anything left resembling a groomer, but we’re certainly not complaining.
Off the groomers there is still soft snow lingering out there from this past storm and it’s only going to get better and better. This storm is really going to help fill in tracks and refresh conditions in ungroomed terrain. It’s also going to continue to help build our base, with the Mansfield stake now sitting at 71 inches. That’s starting to get pretty deep! Upper mountain lines that haven’t been skiable all season are going to start opening up, so grab your powder skis and get out there the next couple days! It’s going to be awesome.
See you on the slopes!
