Just People Watchin'

It got to be about 3.00 pm and my in-for-the-weekend riding comrades still had a hunger for a few more runs. As they should—all things considered—conditions were exceptional. Here’s twenty-five plus shots of just people watchin’ that I believe are worth sharing. Nothing says, “Come to Central Vermont” like smiling faces, [...]

Interview: Lance Richard of The Snow Angel Tavern

We all know and appreciate that Vermonters are a special breed. Honorable, persistent and rare to back down from a challenge. While the rest of the country whines about “the new economy”, the Snow Angel Tavern and owner/chef Lance Richard are perfect example for the rest of [...]

Yes! There's Snow in These Here Hills

Whether it’s emails or Facebook messages, the question that comes up the most often the last last couple weeks isn’t “Will it be Mitt?” or “When will Linsanity end?” or even “Why can’t the Pats beat the Giants?” The question that keeps repeating is: “Is there snow up there?” And the answer? Oh yes! Come and get [...]

Winter Dew Tour 2012: Photos Day 4

Over 700 images in just four days. And those are just the one that made the cut. Damn, that’s a lot of shootin’. Agreed, shot by shot some could be tossed out. But as a collection of images aiming to capture the ebb and flow of a moment, sometimes just-okay shots help to establish pace and plot for the killer visual [...]

Snow bunnies? Sno! Bunnies!!

Different strokes for different folks, as they say. And even in the middle of Dew weekend, the adage held true. The tour guide for the evening—aka yours truly—spelled out the usual Saturday night options and drew blank, if not slightly cold stares from the weekenders. So I paused, dug a bit deeper into the ol’ bag of tricks and shuttled the crew off to Santa Fe for some Myk [...]

Winter Dew Tour 2012: Photos Day 3

Dew Day 3 started where Day 2 left off—at Jax. The NJ-ites were a bit off on their E.T.A. so fashionably late meant a post-midnight arrival. Not to worry, Ms. JH & her band of bunnies wasted no time warming up to the dance tune covers of Jamie & Aaron Audet. As for the day’s day at Bear Mtn, it’s was pretty damn Dew-licious. [...]

Winter Dew Tour 2012: Photos Day 2

In retrospect, yesterday might have been a bit too good to be true. Mother Nature pushed back a bit on Day 2 and that push-back took the form of wind, wind and more wind. She squashed one of the slopestyle events and came close to doing the same in the super-pipe. Sarah Burke and the risks of going extra big were on the minds of many. Once again, let’s cut the chatter and roll the [...]
