Few quick pics from a trip through parts of northern Vt. this weekend. Cannon on Friday was a cue ball, best remembered for clear skies, good scenery, and a few passable runs on the edges of hard bumps off the Zoomer chair. Burke on Saturday was very enjoyable but oh so thin in the woods. Jay Sunday had far better base and surface than Cannon or Burke, with very nice snow in some of the glades. Son of ski buddy is an instructor there and he chaperoned us around for a few hours. Mad River today served up a surprise powder day, with about 3 inches of dust on crust near the bottom, but more like 6 - 8 on parts of the upper mountain. Lynx - Beaver and Lower Antelope were particularly fun.
