I don't think I need to tell you how good the snow is right now. Awesome!  No crowds, bright sun, a tad cold, but who cares! Get out there if you can!

    Great photos, Betsy-- it truly was a "hero" day-- we had people all through the woods having a great time! It looks like you had no lift lines at all.

    I have never waited in a lift line at the Snow Bowl. Well...maybe 5 people in front of me if that counts!

    I love The Bowl...thanks for the pics. Bailey Falls lift serves some awesome terrain.

    Very nice Betsy, particularly the teardrop Poma chair is my favorite.

    I was there Saturday.  What fantastic conditions, and the place was crowded.  Wind didn't help as the front side lift was on hold for a while, but I actually waited in a 5 or so chair wait on Baily's.  Never saw that before, and I had to park almost at the road with my pathetic noonish arrival. What a great day!

    Wow!!! The only time I ever see it that crowded is when there is a race! Even then, it's the lodge and parking that is crowded, not the slopes.  Glad you had a good day! If you ever heard there again let me know and we can meet up for some turns.....

    Will do, but I most likely won't be back this season.  Middlebury is usually a once or twice a season trip, as it's a pretty long day trip from Southern NH, but worth it every time!

    Sounds like the security line at the Burlington airport.
