Winter is still with us but the snow has been in hiding. Not to worry - February and March are usually our snowiest months anyway.
Even though Vermonters are born wearing skis, back in 'the day,' most didn't spend much time on the slopes. Too expensive. Snowshoeing was the winter sport of choice.
I live in the town where they once made Tubbs snow shoes. Tubbs made the best snow shoes. They're sold by L.L.Bean, EMS, etc. and were preferred by Admiral Byrd and Norman Vaughan on their trek to the South Pole.
I think they've had snow there.
