The Ski Season Begins!

The first significant snow-producing nor’easter of the 2010-11 season dumped 10-30+″ of heavy snow over our highest mountain areas of the Northeast this past weekend (VT’s Greens and NY’s Adirondacks, especially), and skiers have been out since Friday morning(10/15) embracing the return of our good friend Old Man Winter. Below are a couple of images we captured that illustrate the incredible contrast between the world at base elevation in Vermont (approx. 1800′) and the winter wonderland above (2000′ higher) along Vermont’s Green Mountain divide. For more images from the storm, head to our skiing website,, where we posted two batches of photos from the storm and skiing this past week in Vermont: LINK 1 and LINK 2

Yes, the photo above is real – captured on Saturday, Oct 16 close to our home in Vermont!

Thank you Old Man Winter for a good dose of what’s to come in the months ahead.

September Snow in Vermont!

Beautiful, beautiful September gave way to Octoburrrrr last night with the first snowflakes in months floating in from the heavens above.  Up to 3″ inches of snow fell in the Green Mountains last night and throughout the day today, with most of that falling in the Mount Mansfield region.   While the snow is always a treat, we are still looking forward to some warmer weather before Old Man Winter gets his way with us.
