Photo(s) of the Week: Dreaming of a White Halloween

Green Mountains, VT

While a heavy dusting of snow lured at least a few of us into the mountains last weekend, some beautiful surf out on the coast, courtesy of Hurricane Gonzalo, kept many of us out of the mountains altogether. Fast grass? Or chest to head high peelers? Either way, it was hard to go wrong. Some …

It’s the view out a two foot by two foot domed skylight above the pantry in our home, while buried by more than two feet of freshly settled snow on the roof. It’s pretty cool to …

Photo of the Week: Sweet Powder Snow

Wednesday’s storm treated many mountain areas of the Northeast to 6-12″ of fresh snow, and the off-piste skiing, especially, has improved dramatically. There’s still little to no base in many mid to lower elevation zones, but in some areas higher up, it’s finally starting to look a bit more like mid winter. Here’s an image …
