A Reminder of the Spring 2015 Season
"Monday, April 13, 2015. Folks, with the temperature at 65 degrees, the snow is now melting at a good pace. Most of the VAST Trail was open through this past weekend, however, as of today, the season appears to have drawn to a close. Thanks for a great year and see you next winter!!"
"After some exciting weather events a week ago we are happy to report that we survived the January thaw and still have some good riding opportunities available for you! The best riding at this time is along trails in Washington, Caledonia, Lamoille, Franklin, Essex and Orleans Counties. These areas were able to maintain the trail base during the thaw a bit better than the southern counties. The trails in the woods and along high elevation summer logging roads are offering the best conditions, while trails in the fields and valley areas are very thin in terms of snow cover. Try to stick to trails in the woods if you can!
All trails have a rock solid base, and new snow throughout the week is helping things out a bit in terms of cooling for your machine. Many clubs have been out grooming in an attempt to get the trails back into shape as best they can. If you head out and ride you will find some good sections of trail and some that could use more snow cover! Expect ice at all times, trenches across the trails in some areas where the water ran during the thaw, open water bars, exposed rocks and other hazards. We are back to early season riding in some areas, while the next mile of trail may seem like mid-winter! Use caution and common sense and take things slow and you will find some decent riding. On the scale of 1-10 most trails are around a 6.5.
Get out and enjoy the trails and be sure to patronize your
11-28-18 Here's all you really need to know: We've picked-up 13-16" of snow since it started falling yesterday bringing the seven-day total to just shy of THREE FEET. Another 2-3" is expected today and more by the weekend. If this forecast holds, word is the tram will spin on Friday. It's time to burn some vacation days.
The Jet Triple will be the lift today. It's scheduled to open at 9:00 AM and run until 4:00 PM
Current lift ticket rates are $59 for adults (ages 19-64) and $49 for juniors (ages 6-18). Check back before Friday for weekend rates - they will change as new terrain and lifts come online. Day passes can be picked up at both our Tramside OR Stateside Customer Service locations. Or, purchase the day before and get discounted rates online. Just a heads up, if you’re looking to pick-up your season pass, please head over to Tramside Customer Service.

Thanks to everyone who came out and celebrated our earliest opening since 1996! Skiers and riders enjoyed great surface conditions Friday and Saturday while Sunday's mixed bag surprised us and wound up turning to all snow at the summit mid day.
Warmer temps will bring more snow Monday evening through Tuesday with another 3-5 inches in the forecast. That will set us up nicely for next weekend where the Mid Burke Express will spin from 9am-4pm both Saturday, 12/1 & Sunday, 12/2.
