The snowpack is still very much in recovery mode, and an expected half foot or more by Sunday morning will go a long way. Already 2 to 4 inches are on the ground.

The new snow should make for a wild snow golf tournament at Stowe on Monday. Ever putted in powder? The event is part of Stowe’s annual Winter Carnival, a great opportunity to shake off any cabin fever and go a little nuts. After all, the Jagerettes will be in the house.

The carnival continues all week with a professional ice carving contest and snow volleyball tournament.

Down the road, Sugarbush will hold the first event of its “Call Out” series on Sunday. You’ve heard the story of Babe Ruth pointing his bat to the center field bleachers in the 1932 World Series then smacking a home run to center field. This event gives skiers and riders a chance to do the same thing in the terrain park.

Call out your trick then do it. You’ll be judged on whether you complete the trick you call. It’s an interesting format in the ever-evolving world of freestyle.
