Today we were back at Stowe Mountain Resort for our weekly BJAMS  ski program day.  There was some light to moderate snow during the day for a short time, but nothing in terms of accumulation that established any powder on the trails.  Conditions were still excellent, with packed powder on piste and powder off piste, and while the most popular off piste places had seen enough traffic that they featured packed or tracked snow, untracked powder was easy to find.  We played around in the trees on Spruce Peak and had a good time, even if the powder was a bit old.  The snowpack is well past that stage where the off piste is sufficiently covered, and after finally getting in on a couple of synoptic storms, things are now at the stage where brush is becoming so buried that most hardwood areas between trails, even those that don’t receive trimming attention, have opened up enough for turns.  We were finding that aside from zones with tight evergreens etc., you’d just poke your head in the trees and go.  Click through to get to the full report from Stowe today.
