"Its been a long December and there's reason to believe, maybe this year
will be better than the last?"

Last year was a nmad good one. This one started out with a powder day.

On the quad at 8:05, after fighting sanding trucks and lines of cars
through Waterbury Center and Stowe. It rained most of the way to Waterbury
on 89, then turned to snow near the exit. A slushy inch through Moscow,
turning drier and deeper on the access road. 2-4" at the parkinglot and
snowing heavily.

Four top to bottom runs, no stopping when time is of the essence. 5" in
drifts, 0" where the howling wind happened to bust through. Soft, medium
density snow, not too wet, certainly not too dry.

By the time I left at 9am, the open trail(s) were tracked out and starting
to get a little choppy. Snow turned to rain around the Matterhorn and roads
were clear and easy back to work in Waterbury Center.
