STOWE - Terrain Report: December 14th, 2010


The past week has been a weather nightmare!  We’ve gone from almost 30 inches of blower pow to warm temps and rain.  Last night that rain turned to snow and added up quick… well, at least I thought so.  I woke up bright and early in hopes to get some sick freshies at the mountain.  The roads this morning were a disaster because of the mix precipitation we had over the night.  Cars were all over the road.  I’m wondering when people with SUVs will realize they aren’t invincible and drive safely!  Probably never.  Anyhoo, I eventually made it up to Stowe, laced up and went to the Quad since the Gondola wasn’t open.
