Snow in the Morning

Woke up this morning to a beautiful winter scene.  We’ve been lucky to have several nights lately, where the snow falls while we sleep.  And when the sun comes up it looks as if everything has been sprinkled with a covering of powdered sugar.

Snowboarding the Catskill Mountains

With all the snow Nemo left us, me and about everyone else within a 3 hour driving radus of the Catskills landed at Hunter Mountain on Sunday.  With a foot of new powder how could one resist.  The lines were insane, but we got a few runs in.

I think half the fun of the day was the drive. Seeing everything all covered in snow and ice was spectacular.  My friend and I even spotted two, yes count em two, rainbows!  My trusty iPad wasn’t exactly up to the challenge of capturing those unfortunately.
