Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

The weather outside is frightful… in fact the snow is delightful!   The snow has finally fallen and is staying on the ground both in the valley and up on the mountains.   So it’s time to consider outside activities such as skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sledding, etc.

The mountains are topped with snow, the weather is cooler, Christmas decorations are out in the shops AND outdoor ice rinks are slowly opening.   Yup, we are transitioning from fall into winter (already!!).
