    Smugglers' Notch, Stowe VT

    Hwy 108 thru the Notch is open and in very good shape. There are a couple of rough patches just above some curves on the south side as you near the summit, but they are easily avoided. No sand or gravel in the curves, and the rest of the pavement looks great. The biggest hazard this time of year are local cagers who don't remember the curves as well as they thought they did.

    Enjoy

    Following our weekend storms I rode back up and have an update.

    There appears to have been a lot of water washing across the road on the southern approach. Several of the curves now have gravel and small rocks in them, as well as small branches and chunks of leaves.

    Once you go over the summit it's looking good clear to Jeffersonville, save for a couple of branches thick as your thumb sticking a bit into the traveled lane at about helmet height and a patch of gravel adjacent to the Smugglers' Notch Ski Resort overflow parking lot.

    Ride safe.
