Stowe Mountain Cross Country Ski

Who'd think that pouring rain could lead to a record-breaking snowfall and terrific late winter ski conditions? Who'd think that March sun reflecting off snow could feel as warm as a day in May? So it was for our Tuesday, March 8th ski at Stowe Mountain Resort where seven people skied on freshly groomed trails stopping at the trail-side Bear Hut for lunch. Some of the group skied around the Burt Trail/Bear Run/Timber Lane loop while others tested their stamina on trails not yet groomed. The sparkling unbroken snow made for beautiful yet difficult trekking through snow-draped hemlocks and fir. The new snow and good company made for a fine outing.
