Beautiful morning so I took my camera along. Still powder abounds but most trails were skier tracked the day after the epic weekend. No crowds, skied right onto the lifts. Very sweet soft snow.

Had a similar experience at MRG today, weather and all. I think I may have had about 20-30 people ahead of me in line at the single chait at one point, but it was rare. No pics handy on my laptop. Hoping for a great day at Sugarbush tomorrow. All in all, great snow, about as good as it gets at the Glen.

It should be a great day just be aware that it will be a very cold start, -10F-0F.

Sugarbush was excellent yesterday (3/21/2007)

Conditions were outstanding. Bluebird style all day and not a single cloud. I went there with every intent to ski both south and north, but as usual, I got addicted to south and stayed there for the entire day.
Sugarbush is VERY well operated and managed. As part of the new Lincoln Peak village development, the new base lodge is a HUGE improvement over the previous. Little things like; free spring water in the cafe; trash cans at the bottom and top of the lifts; nice new stairway from base lodge to the parking lot make the outrageous price of the lift ticket more tolerable.

I'll elaborate a bit on some of the highlights:

Organ Grinder - Supreme early morning Cordoroy.

Paradise & Paradise Glades - Plenty of coverage. PP. No bald spots. Some freshies still around here and there.

Murphy's Glade - TONS of coverage. PP.

Domino - Another suprise I've never previously bothered with. Full coverage. Excellent glades. PP.

Twist/Lower Twist - Never skied this one before. Solid Northern exposure and excellent glades on the lower half. Full coverage. PP.

Summit Hike - This observation deck has some of the best views in New England. ADK's on one side and the Whites on the other. WELL worth taking off your skis and slogging up.

Spillsville - Best bumps on the mountain. All PP. Many bubbles to be cuffed.

Eden - Very nice, lower mountain, hardwood glade. Not too many treats, but aesthetically pleasing.

Castlerock Double - Not sure when this happened, but the old double has been replaced with a very nice, solid, Poma double. The chairs are still far apart but much more comfortable.

Middle Earth - Excellent coverage. Plenty of time left on this one. It was starting to get corned up in places.

Castlerock Run - Same as Middle Earth.

Rumble - Always love this trail! I skied it at around 2:00 and there was a number of bare spots and some areas were corning up and refreezing. Unless there's another dump, the upper portions of this trail should be closed shut down very soon.

The Connecting Lift - really only used on weekends and holidays, and even then there are many variables that further determine it's operability.

Birch Run and Sunrise - I enjoyed skiing these two. Some places on Sunrise were corning up at around 1:30. Birch Run was not corn.

Sleeper Chutes/Glades - Almost totally corned up.

Jester - Remained PP all day. A good last run.

Yes, it is a new double but the same speed as the old double, so the traffic has not increased on CR. It should be a good and long Spring and the plan is to keep going to the end of April is Mother Nature allows. The next three days are looking good after a few sprinkles tonight!
