October Snow: The 2011-12 Season Is Here!

Our good buddy OLD MAN WINTER is back! He’s been throwing snow at us since Wednesday in many mountain areas of the northeast, and currently, the mountains of southern Vermont are likely scoring the deepest snows in the region, with more than 6-8″ falling in the Killington/Pico zone. Although the snowfall close to home in Vermont’s Mad River Valley was considerably lighter, our first turns of the season on snow were as sweet! as can be – thanks in part to our trusty Marquettes. With more snow falling tonight, we’re looking forward to venturing farther afield on Friday, where we know it’s only getting deeper as we write this. For those of you heading out there – take it slow, make lots of turns on the thin cover…and pray for snow. We’ve got a long winter season ahead of us. And stay tuned!
