With over 5 feet of snow so far this month and cold powder-preserving temps, March 2014 will be remembered as one of Sugarbush's finest winter stretches. The heavy natural accumulations have significantly expanded the available terrain, opening uncommon off-piste lines.
The deep homemade base that our snowmakers painstakingly placed on the trails should keep us running strongly through April, possibly into May. While it was below zero at the summits this morning, we expect more traditional spring-like weather to arrive this evening.
March 2014 has brought some really tasty snow!
The weekend is packed with fun events and even with some damp precipitation predicted for Friday, the turns should be excellent. We expect a dry warm Saturday, then snow in the evening into Sunday.
Mt. Ellen's last day may be powder-filled. Next week's outlook is hinting at further flakes too.
Moonshine got a rare roll last night.
The seasonal changes have not really started, there haven't even been any major maple sap runs yet. For contrast, the local sugar houses are usually winding down operations by late March.
What a week! The snow just kept falling.
So although it is still wintery now, the bittersweet feelings are beginning. Powder is the most precious snow condition and the last fluffy floats of 2014 are likely to be gone soon.
It's a win-win-win.
Dropping into Lower Birdland.
The smiles say it all.
Clean mountain air.

Join us for the Mt. Ellen Closing Festivities this weekend!
Be sure to get out and enjoy the peak pack while it is at its deepest. Absorb some of winter's cold comfort now to ward against the hot summer days to come too. The weekend is going to be sweet ... better be here!
