The Fall Line: MLK Weekend Events and Snow Forecast, National Safety Awareness Month

Body shots were on served up at Jay Peak Resort this Wednesday 

What a Week!
Vermont received up to 14” of new snow in the last three days while snowmakers were busy taking advantage of perfect snowmaking temperatures. Trails filled in nicely and ropes were dropped, further expanding open terrain across the state. Open terrain has expanded more than four fold since the start of the New Year and Vermont currently has over 500 trails open. We expect to see that total spike, passing 600 this weekend.

Additional snow is in the air as forecasts call for a substantial storm to swing through this weekend bringing more snow to Vermont resorts on Saturday. Plus, stormy weather should linger next week, too, with another storm system in the works for next weekend. Keep an eye on snowfall totals and trail counts as they increase at

Happy MLK Weekend
We’re looking forward to celebrating winter, snow and Martin Luther King Jr. Day with you at Vermont resorts this weekend. There are a ton of events lined up all across the Green Mountain State, so be sure to check them out at For those starting their long weekend a day early, you’ll find up to 4” of fresh snow fell last night. Now, that is the way to kick off a long holiday weekend!

Safety First
January is National Safety Awareness Month nationwide, and Vermont resorts and the National Ski Areas Association have teamed up to educate skiers and snowboarders – young and old – about being safe and using common sense on the slopes.

The highlight of this annual effort is NSAA’s national safety awareness poster contest, in which kids choose one part of “Your Responsibility Code” to interpret in visual form. In Vermont, you can find education on ski and ride related family safety tips, food for fuel, and injury prevention. Fun events, challenges and contests are happening around the state all month long.
