A relatively wet weekend with 1.5″ of precipitation falling Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The rain was welcomed as it got very dry after the snow melted off. Wind, very low humidity facilitating the drying process. The woods are starting to come to life more and more each day with wildflowers and buds on the trees and saplings.
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″. 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. We continue with trail tuning 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.
