Again, seasonably cool, mostly sunny and 31* at 11:00
Busy up there today as it’s a nice day and that it is Good Friday so many are skiing Fri-Sat with family obligations on Sunday. The skiing once again was really, really nice. Skier traffic cut up the grooming some, but Superstar was still skiing nicely when I left at 12:45. It never got bumped, just became more granular. This weekend though with warmer temps forecasted there should be some bumps and softening conditions on Lower Skyelark. Don’t just limit your activities to skiing. As a matter of fact, I rode the lift with someone this afternoon who was excited to ski in the morning, golf the front nine at Green Mountain National golf course and go for a bike ride in the afternoon. Now that’s what I call getting after it.
I just poked a look at the long range forecast and next week looks cool with a chance of rain/snow showers Mon-Weds. Cool temps even if it is a little showery will definitely keep the snow pack. How ironic? Winter never really started, now it doesn’t want to leave. I however have no problem with it. I’m sure the groomers of Skyelark>Bittersweet and Superstar will ski very well next week too. Speaking of weather, I stumbled across this from the Nation Weather Service which summarizes the historic march warmth of 2012. I found it pretty interesting, alright, actually downright depressing and shocking, but interesting.
