    Smuggs/Stowe 2019

    Didn't even crack open the new issue yet. Nice write up. Another tidbit: Smuggs is the only resort in at least VT that has an unlimited supply of water for snowmaking ever since they laid pipe and a pumping station in the Lamoille River 2 years ago.

    Season total so far is 221" and Smuggs tends to underreport. Gonna stay deep for a while, cold air is locked in with a little warm up Tues/Wednesday and a shot at another smaller dump of snow with a sprinkling of flurries. Then resumption of cold air and............................more snow into the weekend. Good time to be stuck in VT. If anyone is thinking of coming to VT, now is about as good as it gets.

    New Purchases... What did you buy so far

    These kicked ass today. I still have to get used to fingerless dexterity, but totally worth the trade off for warm digits.

    Smuggs/Stowe 2019

    Sunday funday, 15-18" with thigh high drifts. Went up early and skied 2 untracked runs off M1, Black Hole to Freefall, Then upper FIS to Dempsey's. Pristine powder, a wee denser than I thought. Temps started at 2 degrees and by the time I hiked over to Stowe it was a balmy 10 degrees. We met at the bottom of the Sensation quad and opted to stay on Spruce, low crowds and less chunder. Skied a run down Sterling and we opted to stick to some glades for less bumpiness. Stowe gets tracked out pretty quickly. Did 4 runs there and headed back to Smuggs. Dennis's daughter is on a race team and was up at Stowe for training. She tweaked her knee and he had to check out and take her home. Took him 3 hours to get to Stowe from S. Burlington; Mountain Road was a Joey show with baloney skin tires. Ryan and I did 2 bowl runs off Sterling to the Notch road. Temps started dropping below 0 and the winds were picking up by the time I got to my car. Still snowing pretty hard right now. I think we will total out over 20" by Monday AM. Now, I'm gonna "serve" Toast with pics.....cuz it happened. Gondy rides were unnecessary due to 10 degree temps and mild wind. So, maybe gondy pix another day. Smuggs conditions are way better than Stowe due to smaller crowds and slowski doubles. Quality over quantity rules. Just my opinion, still nice to be able to go over there. Stowe:

    looking at current models, Blue should get 4-6" of dense with an ice shell.
