No, this post is not dated incorrectly. It is in fact Memorial Day Weekend and the images you see do indeed show fresh snow atop some of Vermont's highests peaks!

After several days of rain (we were ready to build an ark), the temperature dropped and so did some snow! I saw photos of people who hiked for turns. For May, that's pretty cool.

This was also the last weekend for Killington's ski season. It's time to enjoy Vermont in the “off-season” — and there's plenty to enjoy!
