Skytop - Dewey - Underhill - Ranch Camp ...

A sugar day in the semi-backcountry (skiing mostly on blazed trails, and with signs at trail junctions) on the shoulder of Mt. Mansfield.

Stellar late winter conditions -- fresh powder on top of a nice firm base.

Skytop trail. There were many people out in the woods taking advantage of the great conditions.
I was the first person to ski around Lightning Knoll at the end of Skytop -- most people just skied off the ridge through the trees.

Heading back to the car via the Underhill Trail, before more tree skiing down to Ranch Camp.

It was a great day to be out, and this has been a good year for snow.
