First Weekend on Snowboards

We made our first trip to Vermont last weekend. The temperatures were very warm the week before and the snow/trail report didn't look good.  However, we arrived on Friday night to some light snow that continued to fall through Saturday afternoon.  We had some great riding at Pico on Saturday afternoon.  Some "freshies", small crowds, friendly Vermont locals and a quiet weekend with the Thames Ski Club made for a great weekend.  We headed home Sunday as there wasn't enough snow for XC skiing in the woods, and our legs were not up to another day on boards.

The falling snow didn't do much for action shots on boards, but we did manage to catch a photo at the The Farmer's Diner in Quechee, a favorite spot.  We learned about The Farmer's Diner when reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver.  The locally sourced bacon, fresh eggs, breads and jams can't be beat!    We especially like the mugs that say "As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists." - Joan Gussow.
