Spring's roll up the mountain flanks has been rapidly accelerating this week, with full-size leaves bursting from branch ends and colorful blooms emerging faster than you can count them. 

Spring ahead.

Patches of home-made snow are still sticking in the common spots, but these last remnants of winter will soon be gone.

The BrewGrass Fest is coming up quickly and 75% of tickets are already sold. Be sure to get yours now, before they sell-out. Check out our Facebook page on Fridays for the BrewGrass Trivia contest. Know beer. #BrewGrassFest.

Outdoor fun has escalated this week, too. The entire Mad River Riders' and Mad River Path networks are now fully open, with more than 40 miles of free multi-use trails throughout the Valley. Well, "free" is a major exaggeration, but they are free to use. Help maintain and grow them by supporting the work.

Many thanks to GMVS and all the volunteers who make it happen!

All this hard work is being recognized by one of our biggest partners, the US Forest Service. They are awarding 10 local individuals and organizations for promoting recreation in the Green Mountain National Forest, including Win Smith, Sugarbush Resort, the Mad River Riders and yours truly.
