Snow Keeps Falling on Green Mountains to Set Up Sublime Presidents Week Conditions
Whether you’re looking to float through your own White House of deep powder or launch off features like Air Force One, snow conditions at Vermont ski areas are top-notch heading into the Presidents Week holiday.
As of Thursday morning’s Ski Vermont Snow Report, open terrain at Vermont’s alpine ski areas stood at 94 percent (1,147 of 1,217 trails). Additional snow falling throughout the day Thursday set up even better conditions for the weekend and coming week, on the heels of last week’s storm that dumped as much as 20 inches on the Green Mountains.
“Sugarbush terrain is in true mid-season form,” said John Bleh, public relations and communications manager at Sugarbush Resort – one of three areas statewide with every one of its skiable and rideable trails open to the public. “Not only is the mountain 100% open, but the wooded areas at all elevations are skiing excellent right now as well.”
Burke Mountain and Pico Mountain also have 100 percent of their terrain open as of Thursday, while Killington Resort, Smugglers’ Notch Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort were just about there at 99 percent. Thirteen of the state’s 16 open alpine ski areas were reporting 90 percent or more open terrain.
“With 27" of fresh snow since last Friday and more expected tomorrow into Friday morning, things are shaping up nicely for the peak holiday week,” read an email from Bolton Valley Resort on Thursday afternoon.
