"Summer skiing" in Vermont

I went summer skiing on a glacier in Austria once. It was June. It was raining. We couldn't take in the view because of the clouds. The snow was very soft. And the wind was cold and howling — so it was blowing the trash-bag type ponchos we were wearing to stay dry. I can still hear the wild flapping noise of the plastic!

Luckily yesterday's "summer skiing" was nothing like that. Vermont is having some lovely weather for summer skiing this week and weekend.

The Skimeister and I went for a last hurrah cross-country ski at Bolton Valley nordic center. There is still quite a bit of snow up there so if you don't mind really soft snow you can still do some nordic there. Happy "summer!"
