Vermont’s first major snowstorm of the season arrived late Tuesday night, and I realized this morning that I am woefully unprepared for winter. My snow tires are still sitting in the garage, I need a new pair of boots, and my winter gear is packed away somewhere in storage.
At least I got around to ordering some winter sweaters and outerwear for Phoebe last week. But otherwise, my prep for the season has been pitiful. Still, it’s nice to have some snow on the ground just as we get into the holiday season.
The ski areas are gearing up as well. Stowe, Okemo, Sugarbush and Jay Peak are all opening this week. They join Killington, which opened in late October. You can find details and the latest conditions at www.skivermont.com. Whether you’re out on the mountain this weekend or spending time with loved ones at home, I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
