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!
