Christmas Day Skiing at Jiminy Peak.

  Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. The lights. The music. The seasonal drinks. It’s really a great start to a season that is otherwise known as one of the most depressing in the northeast. Luckily, many years ago I have found a way to beat the seasonal depression that affects so many of…

How to Survive a Polar Vortex.

Get ready. Remember the year that it was brutally cold in Connecticut? Okay, well it’s always cold in Connecticut, but I’m talking more so than usual. I’m talking about when the weather of the North Pole makes its way to our state and people begin to stock up on heated blankets and snuggies rather than…

Summer, Where Are You?

There’s no doubt that this has been a long winter for us in New England. The days were cold. The nights were even colder. The snow was, well, let’s not even talk about the snow. The fact of the matter here is, that sometime after forty inches, we grew anxious for spring to come, and…

Outside In: Decorating for Christmas from the Great Outdoors

So this year I’ve been pretty excited about the whole holiday decorating thing. I mean, honestly who isn’t? Every year I, like many of you, unpack and search high and low for every single piece of decor I tucked away since the spring. I really hate that dreaded game. You think you know where everything…

At Mohawk, the Snow is Good!

As of late, I’ve been staying at the local resorts. The past week or so has been pretty dry for the ski resorts in the north country, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for me to spend my hard earned money locally. After all, the folks at these resorts are my neighbors!…

In Drunken Groundhogs We Trust

Spring has sprung says Chuckles, the furry little rodent from Connecticut. Six more weeks of winter our old man Phil proclaims out in Pennsylvania. Who’s right? If you ask me, both rodents are drunk and were clearly pre gaming for today’s festivities. I mean honestly, do they think we’re naive! We’ve stopped trusting those furry…

Social Vixen Heads to Catamount!

Everyone knows I love a good road trip. I mean come on, who doesn’t love to hit the pedal to the medal and jet the car across the open roads of America. What I love even more, however, is a good old fashioned ski trip to one of our many nearby resorts. Skiing takes the…

Winter Thrives at Jiminy Peak

There’s no better feeling in the world then constantly being able to do something you love, and something I love very much is snow sports, skiing in particular. I just can’t get enough of the very sport I was introduced to over twenty-years ago. Since then, I have skied nearly all of the local resorts…

Snowshoeing in Northwestern Connecticut

What is it about snow that brings out the kid in you? It seems for me, each time it snows, a bit of childhood comes back with it. Maybe that’s why I enjoy it so much, then again, I could just be wildly insane. Either way, when there’s a snow day to be had, you…

Day Two at The Dew Tour

I woke up around 6AM this morning, and thank god I did. We got plenty of snow last night! A forecast of three inches was predicted for the area, but for Killington, three inches can easily mean a lot more! Today was the day I planned on trying on my Pantech Element on the slopes,…

A Look Inside AT&T’s Dew Tour Dome

When you want to escape the elements at The Dew Tour, you may want to stop over and visit AT&T’s amazing dome, which looks almost like an igloo, set up right on the grounds of the outdoor village. Oh sure, it may be cold outside, but once you get inside, the heat is on! A…
