The last couple of days have not been record-breaking cold, but it's been frosty enough to break out serious layers and full skin coverage. Usually when the mercury drops this much, it doesn't snow a lot, but we did grab several inches of accumulation this week.
The snow flow is supposed to start rolling again late tomorrow too. Anybody ready for a powder day?
Our snowmakers have taken full advantage of the cold, burying parts of North Lynx, Gate House, Valley House and GMX this week. Temps are going to moderate into the weekend and snow conditions are sweet, especially on the smooth stuff.
Tasty turns this week.
The woods and ungroomed are variable, but the winds have filled in some spots quite well. Pay attention to aspects and elevations when choosing adventures.
The cold has kept the skies pretty clear, the sunshine and views have tempered the challenges of being outside. It's easier to ignore the chill when everything is sparkling and bright.

What always amazes me though, is how many people think it is crazy to go ski and ride when it's like this. We spend all summer hoping for a real winter and now we have a real winter. Celebrate and enjoy! Winter is only so long. These January turns are way better than anything we're likely to see in May.
Race Blazer Willa thinking and looking fast.
With over 150 inches of snow already this season, a solid base in place and the stormiest part of the winter still ahead of us, things are looking really good. Forgive my hubris, but Sugarbush may have the best conditions in the Northeast right now.
Race Blazers don't only bash gates.
