The Fall Line: What's in store for the upcoming Vermont spring ski and ride season

 Snow and sun await your arrival at Bromley Mountain

 
Lion vs. Lamb
March has arrived, which means our favorite part of the season is rolling in. In the last week, Vermont resorts reported up to 18 inches of new snow while continuing their extended snowmaking efforts. Cold temperatures today are preserving the trails for this weekend’s anticipated sunny days and more comfortable thermometer readings. Soft snow and spring-like conditions are right around the corner and, thanks to resorts’ epic snowmaking efforts this season, spring skiing and riding is expected to last into May at some resorts. (Read up about Vermont’s current snow conditions in the great articles linked in the text.)

A long spring season means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy long sunny days, lots of soft turns and tons of fun events at resorts across Vermont. Resorts organized an endless schedule of events this month with something fun happening for everyone in your group: choose adventure races and competitions or hone your skills in one of many types of clinics – celebrate the season’s holidays with events to help ring in Mardi Gras, St. Paddy’s Day and Easter -- soak in the season with pond skimming, 
cookouts and live music – or tap into maple sugaring season. Find details on these and more events at skivermont.com/eventsand visit skivermont.com/deals for sweet savings.

You'll want to keep an eye on the conditions and trail updates at skivermont.com/conditions. This winter has been a wild ride, but there is still lots of ski and snowboard season left to be had here in the Green Mountains, with perhaps the sweetest days yet ahead of us.
 

Sugar on Snow
The sweetest season is right around the corner. Long daylight hours and soft snow make spring our favorite time of year to ski and ride. This sweet stretch of ski season pairs perfectly with Vermont’s other sweet season, maple sugaring time. Vermont resorts and sugar makers across the state team up each spring to bring maple treats slopeside for skiers and snowboarders to sample mid-slide. Enjoy maple-themed events, cooking demos, dinner pairings and, of course, samples of our world famous maple (make sure to try “Sugar on Snow” with a pickle!). For a list of maple events at resorts around the state, visitskivermont.com/events

Be sure to visit the remaining stops on Ski Vermont's Specialty Food Tour, which features local maple producers who often bring along the mobile sugarhouse. Find the March tour dates and stops here. Then, don’t miss the opportunity to extend this sweet season – visit Vermont sugar houses for a first-hand experience with the sugarmakers during Maple Open House Weekend coming up in April.
