Happy May! A quick change from winter to almost summer like weather (albeit very dry). A welcomed light rain shower Saturday morning to help settle the dust. Amazing how dry it got this past week.Humidity in the 20’s facilitating the process.
The snow has all melted and ice is off Little Sugarbush lake next to Maplelag. The water tables have been restored thanks to the snowfall this season just under 100″. Signs of spring emerging from the forest floor with a handful of wild flowers blooming and the bullrushes in the sloughs starting to emerge. Waterfowl active as ever including loons that are happy to have a ice free lake.
The mountain bike trails are open for riding. Click here for latest update. Maplelag trails are closed to all motorized use and horses. Windy conditions the past few days have brought down a few trees to clear which is part of our year round trail work as we constantly work on the trails for the next ski season and maintain 25 miles of mountain bike trail.
We had a great run of skiing in April, officially skiing on April 23rd capping off a fantastic ski season of 153 skiable days starting the third week of November. Was great seeing so many people out enjoying the special late season conditions. Thanks to everyone who supported us this season and the trails. The fire on October 10th was a devastating event for us and the long ski season helped keep us active, restore and gain clarity as we recover from the tragedy last fall.
Total snowfall this season at 96″ which ranks in top 5 of total snowfall in one season at Maplelag.
