January was the month of stealth snow. We didn't get the big storms that hit New York, Boston and other areas south of us. But somehow over the course of the month, we accumulated over seven feet of snow at the higher elevations. I say "higher elevations" because we probably had at least two feet more snow at the summits than at the base.
The mountain is in great shape. We have put down more gallons of snowmaking than this time last year and are ready to shut down for the season (unless, of course, we experience a thaw).
February is historically our snowiest month, followed by March (what happened the last two years?). And, right on cue, Mother Nature is going to deliver this week.
I don't want to jinx anything but I think it is safe to predict that by Wednesday morning when the Lincoln Limo leaves at 7AM, we will be skiing powder. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this week are all going to be fanatastic skiing and riding.
Nothing more needs to be said. Get on up here. We have been waiting all season for this storm!
So what would you expect a former Executive Vice President of Merrill Lynch to do when he retires? Lay low in the islands? Nope. He moves north and works seven days a week right here at Sugarbush. Check out what he's been thinking.
