Last Saturday (4/6/96), the conditions on the intermediate terrain were
excellent.  The sunshine was pretty much unobstructed all morning and in
April, full sun = corn!  Intermediate trails I sampled included Bunny,
Upper Antelope, Quacky, Lower Gazelle and some stuff over in Birdland.  I
can also say that Chipmunk Bowl is pretty much kaput, as well as lots of
the lower double stuff like Snail and Periwinkle.  If there was much
accumulation from the most recent storm(s), it would help the intermediate
stuff out over there quite a bit.

A real cheap place with nice hospitality is The Golden Lion on Route 100 at
the foot of the Sugarbush Access road.  Try the Mad River Barn, too.
