No problem on that concern. And if you skied this past Saturday at Mount Snow, you would know why. Mount Snow got a great dump just before the weekend. Saturday was definitely chilly, but the sun was shining all day and the snow was p-e-r-f-e-c-t. It was as though we just jumped right back into winter conditions, which I love. And what a treat to get those kind of conditions the last weekend of March. I think that you have to be a real skier or rider to understand the last sentence. But, if you are reading this blog all the way to this point, there is a good chance you are. And by the way, I am glad that you are.

With all this snow, spring skiing here in New England is going to be outstanding, as soon as Mother Nature decides that it is time to have spring skiing.

    Alpine Meadows and Kirkwood are two of the gems on Lake Tahoe! I’m a Vermonter, yet have been able to travel around and have enjoyed skiing at some really great places outside of New England. The biggest differences I’ve found between the West and NE is the amount of sun, otherwise, those folks in the West tend to be spoiled. Seems that many of the locals only ski the back bowls after they’ve been packed down by others, and stick to the groomed trails whenever the snow conditions aren’t the greatest. Fine by me, left the back bowls almost empty every time I’ve been there, but the saying holds true, “If you ski NE, you can ski anywhere!” We New Englanders are a hardy bunch, capable of skiing the frozen crud and ice, etc., which tends to make us appreciate really nice conditions when we find them! Keep those tips up!
