Bolton Valley, VT 09DEC2018

Although E and the boys weren’t out at the mountain with me yesterday, this afternoon the whole family had a bit of time to head up to Bolton Valley together to hopefully catch some of the weekend’s remaining powder.  Temperatures were much warmer today, nearing the freezing mark in the valleys, and up into the 20s F in the higher elevations.

We got up to the mountain in the midafternoon as the ski resort’s day was winding down, so skier traffic was very light. The Snowflake Chair wasn’t running, but there was still decent access to a lot of the Snowflake terrain, and plenty of powder was available. We did a couple of runs on Cobrass, working our way down through the Five Corners/Cobrass Run area followed by connections to the Snowflake area.  There were a couple of additional inches of fluffy snow overnight, but indeed the powder was very much like we found yesterday.

Temperatures are expected to stay cool all through the upcoming week, so the snow that’s out there should stay quite nice.
