Don’t look now – winter is just around the corner. Time to tune those skis, dig up the gear bags, and make last minute hard-shell purchases. This shot was taken yesterday at Sunday River. My sources inform me that Loveland and A-basin have also started blowing snow (and I heard the latter even got some natural over the weekend). Here in the Upper Valley NH temps are below freezing at higher elevations (although not consistently). Its almost junk board time in the northern part of the greens (if you are into that sort of thing). My early season consists of lift served groomers (I’ll hike for turns, but not in November with 4 inches of snow on the ground). See you on the white ribbon!
