Roller Coaster Weather
Skiers and snowboarders rode Mother Nature’s weather roller coaster at Vermont resorts this week. Resorts across the Green Mountain State saw more than a foot of fresh snow and a bump in open terrain before temps dipped, rose, and then flipped again. The good news is more snow is in the forecast for this weekend and again in the middle of next week. While we wait, snowmaking and grooming operations are keeping trails fresh and fun. for up to date trail counts, open lifts and new snow accumulation or sign up to receive the daily snow report each morning.

Ski Vermont Programs Still Available
