Spring Brings Vermont Powder Turns

The West Basin features some of the steepest, most technical terrain on the mountain. It served as the venue for qualifiers and day 1. 

Jay, VT, Mar. 30--Spring has sprung in Vermont, but you wouldn't know it from the weather. Snow fell across the Green Mountain state last night, making for great packed-powder conditions. Ski areas from Stratton Mountain to Jay Peak received several inches of snow, beefing up the March snow totals.

The big winner from the latest storm was Jay Peak Ski Area in northern Vermont, which scored 8-12 inches, making for an early spring powder day.

"We picked up over a foot of new snow on the mountain overnight which has thrown us back into mid-winter conditions," said Chris Veillon of Jay Peak. "Hoots and hollers could be heard throughout the resort this morning as people experienced some of the best first tracks in weeks."

The storm was localized to the northern areas of Vermont, but still dusted the southern areas with a few inches.

Jay Peak got 8-12 inches.

Stowe received 4-8 inches.

Sugarbush got 3-10 inches.

Stratton reports 4-5 inches new.
