XC Skiing - Charleston State Forest

With snow promised later today, we joined the regular Tuesday morning ECOS ski trip this morning. Several people had pre-skied Charleston SF yesterday, and found several inches of new powder from a recent lake-effect snow event. With its higher elevation, Charleston has also held on to at least some of its base, so the skiing was pretty good. Snow was falling the entire time we were skiing, which has been a rare sight this winter. We skied for about 2 hours before heading back to the cars and starting a slow, slippery drive home.

We're expecting 3-6" of snow here before this ends overnight, and tomorrow, we're going back to Vermont at the invitation of a friend. Several of us will be staying at her house in Andover for a few days and skiing both groomed and ungroomed trails in the area. Southern Vermont will likely be the bulls-eye for heavy snowfall from this storm, so backcountry trails should be well-covered, unlike last week when we were there.
