Today is the last day of Summer and we're all enjoying the end of season warm temperatures, but also looking forward to Columbus Day festivities (aka: Vermont's Indigenous People's Day.) I've seen some really gorgeous reds and oranges on the trees already. Peak foliage is just around the corner so if you haven't booked your autumnal tour of the Green Mountains, and most especially the Deerfield Valley, now is the time to start planning your trip to the apple orchards, pumpkin fields and corn mazes. Touring properties for sale is another spectacular way to spend the mild days here and ensures you've got plenty of time to close on that amazing Vermont property you've been dreaming about before the snow flies. The next best thing about fall after apple cider donuts is that winter follows! Mount Snow is hard at work finishing up their capital improvements, including the new pump house with increased snow making capacity and a wider Long John trail. If that's not the best news you've heard lately then you've never spent any time on the previously narrow portion of the beginner trail. The excitement will continue to build as winter nears and hopefully in a future post I'll have more happy news about big fluffy snowfalls in the forecast. Until then Happy Fall!
