Truffle Hunt Thursday.
After yesterday’s surprise 5” pow-day, we’re going truffle hunting on the edges and in the woods! Patrol dropped the rope on Wayne’s World and Y-Knot, giving us even more glade options to hunt. The best part of skiing and riding the last little corner of Vermont is the long shelf life our pow stashes have. They are fresh for days, not hours. Poking around off piste not your thing? Dreamy groomers are abundant with packed powder corduroy ready for ripping.
Today is going to be a bit chilly so be vigilant and make sure your extremities stay warm and you cover up exposed areas, like nose and face. Masking guidelines help us stay healthy and reduce frostbite!
Need a new neck buff or balaclava (fun word alert), Trailside Shop in the Sherburne Base Lodge or Bear Essentials in the Hotel has a great selection of gear to keep you comfortable on the snow.
Currently the crew is making snow on McHarg’s Cut off and Open Slope, no touring after-hours on active snowmaking terrain.
DO NOT TOUR or SKI WHERE GROOMERS ARE OPERATING. Lots of people disregarding this warning. If those bad apples can’t learn to stay away from grooming ops, especially the winch cat we will be forced to change our uphill after-hours policy. Don’t ruin a good thing, and don’t risk causing injury or killing yourself or a friend. Check our Uphill Policy page here and make sure you have signed the wavier and know before you go.
