It is no secret that we in the northeastern U.S. had a mighty dose of winter in 2011. Snow events every other week, cold temperatures, and all the challenges that those present to city folk have made many wonder ‘When will it ever end?”
Having grown up in a cold and snowy climate, I know that the best way to beat these conditions is to join them. This would be the winter to go cross-country skiing and give snowshoeing a try, both of which I enjoyed at Mountain Top Resort and Inn in Chittenden, VT. I took a cozy cabin for the Presidents Day weekend, equipped with fireplace and majestic view, and spent my days in the wondrous wilderness of the Green Mountains of Vermont. Those Green Mountains were white all over, thick and deep with snow, making for excellent outdoor sport conditions.
As the weekend came to an end, we approached the finish to February. If I could spend my weekends in winter wonderlands like this one, I would be in no rush at all!
