Yeah, yeah, I know it’s early, but the chance of some wet snow this weekend, gets snowboarders and skiers like me excited. It won’t amount to much, maybe, a dusting in the higher elevations of the Northwest Hills at best.
On Wednesday, Sunday River in Maine became the first Northeastern resort to open, although they plan to close on Sunday. It’s more intended as bragging rights for being first and good PR . Check out its Live Cam to see for yourself.
Nonetheless, I’ll take it anyway because it gets me thinking about the upcoming snowsports season. And this year, we’re planning something different on the Connecticut Post’s and our sister newspapers Web sites – a page dedicated exclusively to snowsports. The latest snow conditions, blogs, stories, best deals, videos, photos, loaded with links to provide a whole blizzard of information. And there will be plenty of opportunity for readers not only to comment, but participate.
We’re in the process of developing the site and are looking for some suggestions, guidance or maybe you’d like to write a blog for us. So shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com
One thing that we’ll be doing on the site is providing you with the best deals out there. Here’s one that ends today at midnight….$50 lift tickets at Killington in Vermont, the largest ski resort in the East. That’s a savings of up to than $32! Click here for details.
