Heading up to VT for some family skiing this coming Friday-Monday, and am looking for snow condition feedback from VT locals or others who have skied there since the storm Sunday.
From what I've been able to gather from online reports, it looks like resorts south of Okemo got clobbered by rain and sleet, whereas Killington and northward got 1-2 feet of snow over the last 3 days.
Will the south be as bad as it sounds?
If so, is the snow at Killington or Stowe light & plentiful enough to warrant a complete last-minute overhaul of our travel plans?
We've booked a place near Magic Mountain & had planned to ski there and Bromley, thanks to 3 days worth of lift vouchers from the recent Epic VT promo.
Magic's website features a rather grim statement about torrential rain, but says that it wasn't a "total washout" (not exactly a reassuring qualifier).
Magic is listing 5" as their present base, and is closed through Friday.
That sounds like mud & rocks to me.
I'm considering other "emergency" measures for saving the extended weekend, including bailing on the vouchers, if needs be, and heading north for Okemo (30mins from our cabin) or Killington (60mins - a long ride with little kids though).
There is also the option of cancelling our lodging with penalties, and heading even further north towards Stowe, but this will essentially triple the cost of the trip, so I'm reserving this thought only as a desperate last measure.
Your thoughts, guidance?
