So the higher peaks in Vermont have been covered in snow and social media has been buzzing with shots of people skinning and hiking for turns. After a rainy work week, we really wanted / needed to get some exercise so despite the rain this morning we headed out to earn some turns at a closed ski area here in northern Vermont.
For me, the tele turns weren't pretty in the now dense, heavy snow, and I had to pick my way down to avoid wet areas and rock slabs, but I can now say for the first time in my life that:
“I HAVE SKIED IN OCTOBER!”
It felt great to be on the hill. Let's hope this early snow is the start of a phenomenal ski season!
