Route: Ski trails

Trails were mostly dry. Some ski trails have not yet been mowed, but most have been. The gravel access road up the ski area is fairly smooth sailing as well.

Not much in way of foliage left on the higher elevation trees, but some past-peak colors at the base and at the pass. Nice colors in the valleys down low. Could see a few patches of snow on Killington from the snowmaking test a few nights ago.

Beautiful, relatively warm weather.
