Ullr Blesses Stowe Mountain Resort's 2011-2012 Opening Day!

Yes, it's true: the Mountain got a dumpload of snow for its once-postponed 2011-2012 season opening day. 8-10 inches of powder made for a snowy first day of the new  season! It continues to snow lightly and the forecast calls for snow to taper to flurries by noontime. The brand new FourRunner Quad opened at 8 and is providing top-to-bottom skiing & riding today. Open trails include Upper Lord, Lord, Upper Ridgeview, Ridgeview, North Slope, Lower North Slope & Centerline for a total of 2.6 miles and over 2,000 vertical feet of terrain. All the terrain has been groomed with the exception of Centerline. There are also two terrain features set-up on Ridgeview. Snowmaking is currently in progress on upper Lord, Lord, and Ridgeview.

Here's what I had to dig out this morning
