Aahh . . . It snowed Saturday in Boston and its surrounding towns. Big, beautiful flakes floating from the skies and for the most part melted on contact with the ground. There were a few flakes that stuck to the grass, leaves, and cars that had cooled off with the air temperatures, otherwise perfect day in the Hub for October 29th. Good stuff.

New England skiing started this season before expected, thanks to an unprecedented early snowfall in October. Both Wildcat and Killington got twisted chairs this past weekend allowing skiers and riders to take advantage of Mother Nature’s blessings.
I am sure anyone who made it up to the mountains relished the opportunity to make some turns on great snow. It is a gift there are resorts that are willing and able to operate when the snow falls, regardless of the date on the calendar. Granted, we are not talking about 100% of the terrain, but how nice it is to see mountains around the region covered in white.
For the record, Wildcat was numero uno! Congratulations are in order. Killington got it together on Saturday, determined to open with top to bottom skiing after a weather window allowed them to blow snow on the lower half of the peak.
It is a long season and there will be much more of this ‘sampling’ to come in the days and months ahead.
