Southern Vermont was pummeled by an epic snowstorm between February 22 and 27, 2010. It was a 1-2 punch storm, with the first, more powerful storm leaving behind a few feet of heavy, “clam-spit” snow and the second leaving behind a light and fluffy topper. For skiers and snowboarders, it was a week of bliss and sore legs. For plowers, it was a windfall after a dry spell of nearly two months. For everyone, it was a lot of shoveling.
On Saturday I took my good camera with me to Magic Mountain, a small “classic New England” ski resort about 15 miles from the behemoth down the road, Stratton. It stopped snowing as I pulled into the parking lot, and by noon the sun was shining. Surfing and swooshing through 4 feet of virgin snow in the sunshine…. well it’s hard to describe. I’ll let some photos try and do it justice.
