Summer Solstice

One of the most depressing days of the summer to some is this Friday, the summer solstice.  We eagerly await summer after the dark winter days and often wet and cool spring ones, and then it arrives with the longest day of the year.  So just after we get to 6/21, the daylight hours already start to get shorter...

Spring Greening

As we bid our very busy 2018-19 winter adieu and look forward to mountain biking, hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, gardening, and other summer pursuits, we turn our attention to our annual spring clean-up activities while we patiently wait for temps to rise, trails to dry and waters to warm. One of these annual spring clean-up activities is Green Up Vermont, which has been a Vermont tradition since 1970 when Governor Deane Davis launched the statewide initiative...

My Thanks for an Incredible 60th Season

Recently, Lili and I traveled to San Diego for the annual National Ski Areas Association conference and then to Omaha, Nebraska for the annual Berkshire Hathaway meeting. Unfortunately, that meant that I missed the final two days of the season and have ended up with 148 days on the slopes (so far) rather than my goal of 150. I say “so far” because I might still slip away in the next several weeks for a couple of days to either Killington, California or Utah where there is still lift accessed skiing to be had...

Setting Goals for Your Golf Game

Whether its hockey, soccer, or life, goals are what we should strive to achieve. I think a great way to start the 2019 golf season is to sit down, relax, and think about goals for the summer. The goals don’t have to be many in numbers or exact.

A Tale of Two Snow Conditions

Once again it was a tale of two snow conditions last week. We saw wonderful skiing and riding midweek and then rain came in and messed everything up.  Saturday was probably the worst day of the year...
