Especially during these toasty warm days of mid-summer, it’s refreshing to pull out the skis now and then, make sure the red squirrels aren’t chewing the bindings to bits, and even slide around on them a little bit – be it on a rain soaked hillside, around the yard, or better yet, on the fast …

Winter reached an unforgettable crescendo over the weekend after 10-20″+ of perfect-density powder snow piled up in the preceding 48 hours across many high elevation Northeastern locales.
