Kelly’s Blog: 100% Open

Happy first day of Spring!  So far this month we have been blanketed with over 3 feet of snow, including the 19″ we’ve received since Monday night.  I don’t know about you, but my legs have been getting a serious work out!  And this weekend should be epic.  Ski any trail (they’ll all be open), the woods and then take in the hilarious costumes and creations during our Duct Tape Derby and Sink or Skim.  All while listening to Reggae music.

Last year on this day Vermont hit a high of 80 degrees.  What a difference a year makes.  I encourage you all to take advantage of what is turning out to be a fantastic March.  Any skier knows that you have to grab it when it is good and savor every turn.  That is what gets us through the summer.

One of the best powder days and I am stuck in meetings! I asked Jack to grab a few pictures and he happily accepted the task. Wonder why?

I wonder what that fog disc says? Beware of Snow!!!

Enjoy the snow and the first day of Spring!

 

I’ll see you at the Duct Tape Derby – don’t forget to wear your tie dye.

P.S.  At the end of the day, Denise asked me if I was up for a snow shoe.  YESssssss!  So I made it out on the mountain after all.  It was just us and a few groomers and it was so beautiful I felt privileged to have the experience.

As we started up Illusion Denise stopped to chat with Jeff, who was making his last run of the day.   It was still snowing.

 

 

The woods are loaded up with the softest snow. We pledged that we would buy skins for next year. Skiing down would have been the icing on the cake.

Denise showed me some glades I had never been in. Can’t wait to give them a try on skis.

Heading home I caught this in my rear view. I love that his first pass was right up the middle.  I later found that Brendan left this signature stripe.
