Where Now: Mount Snow, Vt.

Where Now: Mount Snow, Vt.

One of Vermont’s most accessible ski resorts, Mount Snow is four hours from New York City and two and a half hours from Boston.

New owners with a passion for snowmaking put this resort on springtime’s map.

Along Vermont’s scenic Route 100, a local in a red flannel shirt and grease-stained jeans starts his day by kicking the last of his driveway snowbank to pieces, hoping it will melt in the bright sun. It’s only early spring, but some people are just over winter. I am not one of them.

Especially since learning that Mount Snow has invested more than $8.5 million in state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment over the past two years. It’s time to check back in: It’s been three decades since I last visited the mountain so popular with metro New Yorkers.

Loveland Ski Area Starts its Snowguns
The ski season has officially started (well, kind of)

The 2009-2010 ski season is officially on. With temperatures dipping in the Rockies, Colorado’s Loveland ski area turned on its snowguns yesterday—apparently the first resort in the country to do so—and started putting down snow. The omens are good: Loveland fired up its guns a full three days earlier than last season. We couldn’t be happier.

Ski in October: Ski Europe

France, Austria, and Solden best places to ski during the Half-Term Holidays

Tour operators are warning that the February school holiday week in 2009 is going to be tricky as nearly all schools in the UK have the same week off- when usually the holidays are spread over at least a fortnight. The message is that availability will be low and prices high, already visible if you go to a 'low cost' airline website and try to book a flight to the Alps around Valentine's Day, returning a week later. The message from Europe's leading snow report provider, http://www.skiinfo.com target=_blank>skiinfo.com, is why wait?
