Winter’s back!

I was kinda depressed last week. After some great turns the previous weekend, the Northeast got warm. Really warm. So warm that Lionel launched a new “WTF Weather!?” series. Then it didn’t help to see our western friends with more snow than they knew what to do with (actually that last part is a lie – they know exactly what to do with it!). Yep, all things considered, this past week wasn’t the best time to be a skier stuck jonesing in the Northeast.

Fortunately, the weather changes quickly in New England. Some flurries came in as the temperature plummeted this weekend and Northern Vermont’s Magic Snow (TM) kicked in. By Sunday the snow was really piling up, so after a crack-of-noon start we found ourselves skinning up in a blizzard. Without further ado, here are the pictures! Jackie the black lab came along for her first turns of the season too!

Jackie and Jim

Tom was pretty excited for his first day back on snow this season

Jackie is STOKED. I think she might have been even more excited than we were!

Jim ripping the new snow

I only see one faceshot in this picture...

Rob is back, although this time without a tie!

It was Nick's first day out too!

Thanks for stopping by! It was a great day to be out in the mountains, and things are definitely feeling wintery again! If you get out this week, be sure to check out our weather page, and text/tweet in weather updates using FISWX!

    Jackie def top dog in these shots: more speed, quicker turns, fearless yet smiling….while rock skis are used for early runs they still need sharp edges to shave twigs/vines/reeds/small shrubs they dare to grow on trails. Good Morning FIS.
