From fast grass, to snow, to stick season once again

We've had a little bit of everything in Vermont as of late. Winter was here in fits and starts for a few weeks there, and we were able to get some sweet turns on thin cover.

We even scored some sun here and there.

Last Thursday though, things began to look a bit different. Snow came down pretty heavily, and we were pleasantly surprised to find 3-8" of fresh snow as we hiked up under moonlight Friday morning.

By the time we got to the top the sun was out, and we were pretty sure it was going to be a pretty sweet descent.

Sure enough the powder brought big smiles to our faces. 

There's nothing like fresh tracks.

A big rainstorm Sunday into Monday has things looking more like this in the mountains again, but a storm rolling in later today might change that. Fingers crossed.
