Montpelier, VT (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
In like a lion, and out like a lamb. With snowstorms in the forecast to add to Vermont's already stellar snow pack, early March is living up to its tagline. However, March also marks the beginning of longer days, warmer temps and in turn, spring skiing and riding in Vermont. By the end of the month skiers and riders enjoy soft spring conditions and outdoor entertainment, so prepare to loose the bulky mid-winter layer and take advantage of the late season offers and events. With the state’s 80% snowmaking coverage and the plush snowfall we’ve received this season, we’ll all be skiing and partying right into April.
March is typically one of the snowiest months of the year. While enjoying the conditions, take advantage of some of the great events including a Nantucket Weekend with various businesses from the island, pond skimming, Sugaring Time Festival, and others.
