There’s no denying it; it’s ski season. All of this piled up snow makes me think about heading to the slopes for a long weekend…or even for a week. If I can find the time to get away, I might even stay longer. All I have to do is select the state I want to go to and the type of skiing I like best. I could choose to go anywhere, from Connecticut to California, from New York to Nevada. Whether it’s the powdery, sleek slopes of Aspen, or the blustery mountains of Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont, the feeling of the fresh packed snow under my feet and the sight of those beautiful winter landscapes around me are sure to make me invigorated and refreshed. Sometimes I think back to a winter many years ago, skiing as far north in Vermont as the Canadian border. We cross-country skied the gorgeous trails all day, and then settled in for the evening in the lodge by a roaring fire. I think it might be there where my love for this season first began, right up there in those mountains, surrounded by snow-covered trees. When I look outside, this season brings back those memories and compels me to make some more.
