Beautiful skiing today, and terrific grooming. We skied the Onion River loops and the snow was a bit slow but the trails are fresh and the new snow made for great conditions.

I skied Hogback Loop this afternoon with temp around zero using wooden skis with polar wax. Gorgeous trail as the priority sections were groomed with the piston bully last night. Firm tracks and firm skate deck, just beautiful! I hope as many as possible are able to enjoy the trails tomorrow before next snowfall. The plan will be to resume grooming after next snowfall.

Skied Moose Fence entrance to a little past the 6 mile creek crossing, and back completing the Maple Loop. No trails groomed, but well covered.

Pristine ski conditions on the beautiful Sugarbush! Our groomer was out last night with the piston bully creating gorgeous ribbons of corduroy and tracks. Kudos Daren! Firm skate deck, tracks and pole plants, what a joy to be out skiing! Picnic loop and Moose Fence connector planned to be groomed tonight.

About an inch of powder snow on the Tofte ski down made for better skating both up and down it. The Picnic loop was groomed 3 days ago so the winds have drifted that bit of snow over the trail on the north facing sections making it slower going. Once I got to the Onion River Road I was rewarded with fresh grooming all the way through upper Homestead. I came across happy skiers, dogs, and snowshoers on the multi-use Summit View trail. The day was near perfect with bright sunshine and temps in the mid-upper 20s. It was a wonderful 40km ski!

There was just a little bit of new snow on top of a hard crust. The grooming had been recently done, and was good. We skied the Picnic Loop, and it was just as pretty as ever. I was classic skiing and my friends were skating. With the course snow, my wax was gone by 10k, making it really rough going the rest of the way. Don't be like me...carry extra wax with you :)

Beautiful classic ski today at Sugarbush. Skied the Onion River Road to the Oberg Loop then over to the Homestead loop and back to the Onion River road parking lot. Plenty of snow, great tracks. Our group skied on scales, skins and waxables and they all performed well! 25 degrees and overcast. Skied between 1:30 and 4:30. Gotta give it a Magnanimous! Primo grooming!

Skied from Britton Peak to Oberg hitting all of the Hogback and Homestead loops as well as some of the Onion River Road. The skate deck was a little chunky in a few locations but firm, only rarely punching through with the poles. The inch of fresh powder on top made everything feel like butter with total control, but just a bit slower. Hardly a leaf or twig was seen. It was a wonderful morning for a ski with temps in the upper 20s. Kudos to the groomers for the great trail conditions.

All trails except Moose Fence and West Oberg groomed with the new piston bully last night putting smiles on skiers faces in the holiday season. Tracks firm, skate deck firm and solid pole plants. We skied Onion River Road and West Oberg today in vintage clothes and wood skis talking to skiers along the way. So fun!

Pretty decent conditions despite meltdown and re-freeze. Most trails have been rolled and many tracked. Groomer did a decent job with about an inch of fresh snow over thick crust. Trails and tracks are a bit crusty. Snow plowing on hills is a bit challenging, but there are some smooth spots. The west end of the picnic loop had a very crusty snowmobile track which caused us to turn around. Otherwise the inch of snow over the smooth crust would have been quite skiable. The other end of the picnic loop had just been rolled. Not a bad day.
