Foliage Skiing

Although our mountains close to home received a light coating of snow a couple of weeks back, it wasn’t until this past Tuesday’s snowfall that we were tempted to break out the skis and kick off the 09-10 ski season.  Up to 6″ of snow fell above 1500′ in northern Vermont, and with the snow still falling on Tuesday and fall colors still strong up to about 2500′, the skiing was beautiful.  For a few hours each day since Tuesday, we’ve been climbing the older, moss and grass-carpeted ski trails of our local ski areas, and then skiing down lower-angle trails that are relatively free of any rocks and roots.

Enjoy these!

Ski It While You Can!

Weeks of surfing beautiful ocean waves on the coast and running/biking through the brilliant colors of fall in the mountains were capped this week by our first ski day of the season.  By sunrise on Wednesday 10/22, 2-3″ of October snow had blanketed our local mountains – just enough to make our favorite low-angle, moss-laden, rock-free ski runs skiable. We climbed and skied for about five hours…caught up with some great friends…and probably logged a casual 5000′ vertical.

It was a real treat be back on the skis again… Emily is “quite pleased”. If the big brown stripes on the woolly catepillars are any indication, we are in for another snowy winter.

Ski it while you can!
