First Turns of the Season…

It’s late October in Vermont, a time when Old Man Winter starts to come around again after several months away. And while the Old Man might not be settling in for the winter season just yet, it sure is fun to grab the skis again, head up into the hills, and slide around on the nice coat of early season snow he recently laid down for us. – Brian

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.
