Winter Storm Pax is bearing on Sugarbush right now. We've had flakes flying for a few hours, but it really kicked into gear recently. The forecast accumulations are impressive and seem to keep ramping up, now at 18-24" by tomorrow afternoon.
Sweet pow surprises this week. Halley O'Brien from Snocountry scoring the goods on Monday.
This new snow comes on top of a sneaky set of squalls on Monday and Tuesday that droppped 11" at the summits. We were able to open Castlerock lift early this week and Slide Brook should spin tomorrow or Saturday. We'll have 100% of the trails open in the morning.
Conditions are excellent on snowmaking routes, but still thin in natural snow areas. Take it easy while wandering off-piste, until you get a feel for the understory. Hopefully, the storm lays down a very thick base. Winds are supposed to pick up tonight and shift to the north and east. Leeward and sheltered spots are likely to have the deepest cover.

The President's Week holiday events kick off Saturday, with lots of live music and fun festivities. More chances for snow also dot the week's weather, this could just be the start of an epic stretch.
Bear sighting! Bear Simmons ripping the cord.
JR Castlerock competitors. Many thanks to all the kids and parents!
Last weekend was the JR Castlerock Challenge, which had to be moved to Lower Birdland. The young skiers and riders put on a great show. Ten kids earned spots in the main Castlerock Challenge on March 8th. Mark your calendars.

The holiday week looks great!
We've got a chance for almost two feet of snow by tomorrow afternoon. The weekend is going to be incredible. Better be here!
