Happy Mother’s Day!

We heard whispers of 9″ this Mother’s Day morning in parts of Northern Vermont, and couldn’t resist going to check it out (after spending some great time honoring Mom)! Special thanks go to Chuck Wood for the tip, because he was almost exactly perfect with his report… Well, the one thing he got wrong was that the snow was probably closer to 14″ deep instead of 9″. We’ll forgive him though.

Enough snow fell to warrant a closure due to avalanche risk ;)

The quality of the snow varied from wind loaded dense powder, to light and dry powder that wanted to hit you in the face. Here’s Christian surfing the dense stuff.

Here’s KC cruising through some lighter stuff.

I got hit in the face. Sorry for partying.

    This would be four thumbs up if you got a shot of somebody’s mom out there hitting up the snow on Mothers Day!

      I told my mom she needed to come out and play! Alas, she wanted to relax, and you can’t push mom on mom’s day.
