enjoyable depends on your level of comfort hitting stuff. The stake on top is at 22 inches, the stake down low is at 16 inches. The snow that is there is super light fluffy dry stuff with basically no give back or support. Even on the fattest skis you are going to hit stuff or worse ski under stuff. Stowe trails are skiing great right now and would stillbe worth coming as if you came to see later in the season with me guiding we would ski very little trails.
yesterday was classic new england blower dust on crust. It funny how every one says we do not get light snow here but the reality we get to much light snow, heavy dense snow helps out our woods skiing better. quite honestly it skied better once it was cut in to crud and bumps. at least I thought so. we will get another fluffy 3-5 inches tuesday into wednesday midday with a chance of wettter storm containing sleet, graupel and snot like snow this weekend. We want this so we can actually ski woods soon.
Early season on trail condtions are the best they have been this time of year in my 5 years of being thanks to the best most extensive snowmaking in vermont, if not new england. Today 12/16 will have amazing groomer conditions and runs like chin clip will have big fluffy bumps on a soft base.
right now the stake is at 22 inches this was 4 months later in the season with 110 inches at the stake. 80 more inches of base is a huge difference.
