Did you hear our highest peaks got snow last weekend? That's always cool to see in October. It gets us excited for skiing!

We've been hiking to get our legs in shape for all those left turns and right turns. We've been doing a "tour de ski areas" of sorts. 

You get a new perspective on a ski area when you climb up it when there is now snow. The trails seem much steeper when you don't have skis or a board on your feet.

In the fall, you can check out the trail mowing progress and take in the colorful views.

Can you guess the Vermont ski areas we hiked as seen in the photos?
