Vermont ski season underway after delayed start

Weekend snow helped resorts open more trails for skiers

Areas of the Upstate of New York and interior New England saw their first significant snowfall of the season, which couldn’t come at a better time for ski resorts.

The region generally saw upwards of a foot of snow, with isolated locations seeing more.

The ski season got off to a delayed start due to warm temperatures and a lack of snowfall. 

Despite the recent snows, several major resorts and ski areas in Vermont remain closed due to the lack of help from Mother Nature.

THIS IS WHAT BRINGS ‘GOLDILOCKS STORMS’ FOR SNOWFALL THAT’S ‘JUUUST’ RIGHT ON THE SKI SLOPES reported only around 5% of the trails statewide were open as of Saturday.

Major ski areas such as Bolton Valley, Smugglers’ Notch and Mad River Glen all have announced openings in December, if Mother Nature cooperates in helping with fresh snow.

The Vermont Ski Areas Association estimates that more than 4 million winter weather enthusiasts visit the state each year.

The Green Mountain State’s ski season typically runs from November into April.
