Not sure what Punxatawney Phil was thinking back in February. Ma Nature rules supreme today, and always, with her April 1st snowstorm just pounding the North East with heavy snow. You can't trust a goundhog to weather forecasting, and you can't plan bike rides and golf outings too soon in New England. If you do, then April Fools on you!
Th skiing this weekend is going to be epic...for those skiers that can get to the mountains. Of course, skiers are a hardy bunch, so they will risk slippery roads for snowy slopes 99% of the time.
I have my snowy sights set on Saddleback and Sugarloaf...big Maine mountains with elevation for drier lighter snow of good bounty. And next weekend, perhaps Jay Peak will be the place to ply some late season turns.

We still haven't gotten our spring ski fix, soft corn snow, deck parties and SPF required. Several pond skimming events have been pushed back awaiting more melty temperatures.
So pause those thoughts of planting peas, and grab your skis. The rest of the season may well be the best of the ski season. See you on the slopes!
