The places I've been, the things I've seen...Since 2006.
Ricker Basin in winter: Stark grey January
Ricker Basin, from Waterbury Reservoir (best viewed large).
While Burlington Vermont is enjoying record snow cover (there's almost four feet of snow on the ground), where I live, about 25 miles away and in the mountains, it's pretty much just cold and dry. The mountains need more accumulating snow before it will be safe for backcountry skiing.
