A sunny but windy morning at Bolton Valley, Vermont.

Thanks to a rather long-duration storm, some of Vermont's higher elevations saw 2 feet of snow through Monday. This was a very welcome development!

The first wave of snow was heavy and wet, while the second wave was soft powder. A perfect combination, really, since our base was shrinking.

Before work today, we got out to make some turns in the snow. It was a pretty, blue-sky morning. But the wind had not yet let up from the storm. We ducked into the woods where things were more protected.

We enjoyed surfy powder turns. Such fun!

Thanks Ma Nature!
