A huge congrats to Danielle and Nick, who recently married on a beautiful fall afternoon upon the summit of Vermont’s Camel’s Hump.

While there may not be much more than fallen leaves covering the valleys, colder temps have enabled snow to fall in our local mountains several times already this month. With good color still clinging to the hardwood trees, it’s a real treat to out in the snow this time of year. Foliage skiing, as we tend to call it around here, has become an annual pastime…seasonally appropriate adventure at its best. We recently published a short writeup and photo essay on the subject on ESPN.com. You can check it out HERE.

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, AdventureSkier.com, 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.

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.
