White Christmas: ski weekend in Vermont

We went skiing at Stowe in Vermont this past weekend, about 500 km N of NYC and only 80km south of the Canadian border. It was a lot of fun. Flew to Burlington, VT then 40 miles by road to ski-in/ski-out Stowe Mountain Lodge - very comfortable and cozy for this time of year. Glorious sunny day Saturday, -2 deg C but no wind on a 60-120 cm groomed base (they've had a lot of snow already this month); overcast, colder and breezy Sunday. Xavi had his first go on skis and obviously his scootering and biking helped with his balance. Paul & Monica found skiing is like riding a bike, straight back on the piste despite not having been for about 5 years - as our ski gear attests! :)
