Vermont really knows how to represent when it comes to the Olympics! There are (if I have my counting correct) about several athletes competing in the Winter Olympics from Vermont. There have been at least 3 medals won by these Olympians a gold going to Hannah Kearney just up the road from Norwich in Moguls. Of course there was the big upset of Lindsey Jacobellis missing out on gold again in Snowboard Cross. Snowboarder Crossers, Kelly Clark ( bronze) and Hannah Teter (silver)also hail from VT.
As you may, or may not know, Snowboarding's roots are in Vermont with one of the pioneers, Jake Burton (as of THE Burton Snowboards), living just down the road in Londonderry, VT. In 1982 the first National Snowboard race was held near Woodstock, Vermont, at Suicide Six Mountain (about 30 minutes from here) and National competitions are held around the state every year.
There are at 7 Ski Areas within 15-60 minute drive from Windsor (Ascutney, Suicide Six, Killington, Pico, Stratton, Magic Mountain,Okemo) so you can come up and try a different one out each day. That's for another post.
More snow in the forecast for today and tomorrow! Nothing like a late season.
