Well, it's February 10th, which means that for a lot of us we're right around halfway through the season. I thought it might be fun to have a "check in" and let everyone know how the season's been in our area. I'll get us started.
Location: Stowe, VT and Sugarbush, VT
Overall, we've had a pretty dry Winter. We had some good snow to get things started in late November, which has proven to be crucial to our season so far. Unfortunately though, our normal holiday season drought has lasted a bit longer than usual. This past weekend we did get a bit more snow though, so I'm hoping we've turned the corner and that there's still time for a few more storms. The upside to the season is that it's stayed pretty cold and rain free. Typically we get a few rainy days and some warmer weather just after the holidays, but we were fortunate enough to mostly avoid the days that tend to take away our snow base.
With the second half of the season still ahead of us, I'm looking forward to the possibility of getting a few more snow storms. If we don't I'm thinking I might have to break out the AT setup and get a few hikes in. Sure it won't be powder, but at least it'd be nice to break away from the weekend crowds a few times this year.
So what about you guys? How's the season been where you are? What things/experiences have you really enjoyed this season, and what lays ahead for the second half of the winter? Let's have some fun with this!
