Morning Light at Smugglers Notch Resort

Winter finally arrived over the past few days.  We've been waiting for colder temps and now we've got them, I heard it may have been -20°F on the peak of Madonna Mountain this morning.  It's not easy to get out of a warm bed on a day like today; however, I knew that the combination of fresh snow, cold temps, clouds and sunshine would result in a beautiful morning.  I headed for the hill dressed in as many layers I could find.  The frozen hands I endured was worth it to capture these images.

Mount Mansfield and Stowe Resort from the M1 chairlift.

Camel's Hump and Sugarbush from the top of Drifter.

Hopefully my next post will involve some action shots of friends choking on mouthful's of fluffy snow! Check back soon!
