Base Depths: 12 - 20"
Woods areas are Open!
Sledding Hill will be open & Skating Pond is closed
The Nor'Easter came through in a big way with almost 2 feet of fresh powder! This weekend we will be open with truly EPIC CONDITIONS, so if you don't have any plans, you should make tracks up here to take advantage of Mother Natures bounty! The entire mountain will be open with all the trails packed and groomed, but there will still be lots of fresh powder to be had in the fields and trail edges, not to mention the wooded areas. We have not had a snowstorm like this one in years, so come on out and take advantage of the conditions while you can!
The Cross country trails on the golf courses have been groomed up after the snow and will be in excellent condition as well. Section 5 will be packed on Wednesday and probably tracked on Thursday so the skiing/snowshoeing should be great out there as well. We will pack the sledding hill for the weekend but the Ice skating pond is not safe to clear and therefore, will remain closed.
Make your plans to join us for this outstanding late ski season weekend!
We may open next weekend depending on the weather forecast, so if it looks like it will be nice we may be open. Check back with Membership services mid-week for an update!
Happy Spring !!!
Skiing & Riding Off Designated Trails
Please Use Extreme Caution and Good Judgement
If you ski or ride off the groomed trails or in the woods, you leave the open and designated trails at our Club. The Quechee Lakes Landowners’ Association is not responsible for any damage or injury to any person who utilizes the ski area facilities to access terrain outside the open and designated trails. [12 V.S.A. 1038.] Vermont law also states that you may be billed for search and rescue activities for your rescue.
Woods Skiing and Riding: Open and designated trails at the Quechee Ski Area are generally within the groomed edges of trails. All other areas, including woods that are accessible from the Quechee Ski Area facilities, are not part of the designated trails. If you choose to ski/ride in the woods (or in other non-designated areas), please know that these areas are not opened, closed, inspected, marked, or patrolled in any way by the Quechee Ski Area.
The woods (and other non-designated areas) will contain countless hazards and can be life-threatening, including the possibility of being severely injured in remote locations and/or becoming lost and freezing to death. Search and rescue operations are conducted
in Vermont woods each winter for lost skiers and riders who choose to leave the designated terrain and ski or ride in the woods. These searches are not always successful. If you do choose to ski or ride in the woods, or otherwise leave the designated trails, please be sure you are prepared to endure extreme conditions. Never ski or ride in the woods alone and never enter the woods after 3pm in the afternoon.
Pets, including dogs, are not permitted at any time on QLLA common land, including golf courses, ski hill, Clubhouse and beach areas. Pets are permitted on our Section 5 hiking trails, and we ask that you properly dispose of their waste.
