Photos of the Day - March 25

Season 7: Last day -- and what a beauty it was. We had lunch on "the beach" at our patrol station: hamburgers and hot dogs on our charcoal grill. With that wonderful grilling aroma wafting between our station and the top of the Sensation lift, we were the envy of our guests!

Day 1, Season 7

Preparations and Patrol Refresher aside, today was day 1 of my 7th season. The forecast was for sunny skies and a relatively warm day -- in the mid to low 30s. It was mostly cloudy from home all the way up the Mountain Road, until, near the Resort, there was a hole in the clouds just above Mt. Mansfield. I couldn't take a photo while I was driving, but here's the shot about 20 minutes later, followed by photo highlights of my day: Waiting to Line Check the Alpine Lift, 8:20 a.m. @ Stowe Mountain Resort

Mt. Mansfield Photos of the Day - January 9, 2009

I worked on the Mountain for the last three days. We got 14"+ powder dump on Tuesday night into Wednesday that gave us silky-smooth first tracks in powder above our knees. It was spectacular. Unfortunately, it was overcast and with the snowfall continuing, I didn't get any photos until today. Hope you didn't miss it!
