Winter sports in Vermont

This weekend we took an extra day (Friday) off to go to Vermont for some winter outdoor sports. On Friday we snow-boarded at Pico Mountain, with temperatures in the single digits (F). The slopes were quiet and the conditions just about perfect.

And on Saturday we cross-country skied from Mountain Top Inn , on freshly groomed trails, in our shirt sleeves (with temperatures in the 30's). We finished off the weekend with a group meal at the Thames Valley Ski club lodge, and were back in Connecticut before dark on Sunday.
Back home the snow is rapidly melting and the yard looks like a big sea of mud! Hopefully we'll get in at least one more trip on ski's/boards before the season is over, but for now it looks like a mild week ahead with no snow in the forecast.
