I went to Sugarbush yesterday, didn't get there until about 10 because of driving conditions. They claim 2' and I would say that is probably accurate. Everything was tracked out and extremely bumped up by the time we got out there, I was on a board which made that a bit tricky. Trees were deep, knee-thigh through the few untracked lines I found.

We stuck mostly to Lincoln, Heavens Gate was on wind hold all day, Castlerock opened around 1 but the line was close to 30m so we only took one run down there, I regret not sucking it up and riding it a couple more times the snow was much better there. We tried to grab one ride on North Lynx but they had to close it a few minutes early because of a "bad moose".

I was talking to a couple people watching and laughing about the "bad moose" as the patroller described it, one guy said he was bucking and running around in circles, another guy said he got chased by it on his last run and went on to say, "that thing runs FAST"

Snowed hard through the drive home, which took FOREVER, with a stop for dinner it was almost a 5hr ordeal.

Today we hit up Crotched on the ride home, we were thinking about Sunapee or Gunstock but didn't want to chance holiday crowds plus Crotched is cheaper. A quick 15 runs and out, my second time there in 5 years, I think i'll probably wait at least that long before returning.
