  2. I was invited to The Hermitage Club for the grand opening of their new clubhouse, and to experience what it's like to be a member. My wife and I drove up from Boston, it a three hour drive. What we experienced was so amazing that it's going to make all our other ski trips, in the Northeast, pale in comparison.
  3. We drove out the Mass Pike and then up 91 North. It's basically a straight shot.

  22. I loved these boots and skis. At the end of the day, my feet were not sore or cold.
  23. We rested our skis on a ski rack before starting the day. This is what it looked like all day. It was like we were skiing on our own private mouontain. And we were. No lines. No people.
  24. Skiing was so much fun. No one was there. Juat us and the groomed snow.
  25. The fresh snow an the trees made for an unforgettable experience.
  26. Snowmaking equipment could star in the next Star Wars movie.
  27. This fireplace thows off a lot of heat.
