When you live in a ski town, winter is a particularly celebrated time of the year. There are many universal reasons to enjoy winter – hot chocolate, skiing, sledding, building snowmen, snowshoeing, decorating for Christmas, and eggnog (with rum, or without). It seems that every person, regardless of their love for winter — or lack of it — can find one thing about this season that is special to them.
For many of us, there is a long list of cold weather pleasures. Certainly, few can deny its inherent beauty. After a fresh snowfall, a thick, velvety blanket covers the ground, silencing the earth’s vibration beneath it. The purity, before any footsteps or paw prints etch their way across the great expanse of white canvas, is breathtaking.
