The Northeast ski season, for the most part, has ended and people are now focused on planting gardens and swimming.  The season began strong, tapered off and then saw a resurgence of natural snowfall. Looking back, experts say the ski season appears to have been better than average for the region’s resorts.

It is the transitional season as winter begins to intrude on autumn.  The colors of fall foliage linger as temperatures drop and leaves begin to fall from trees.  Occasional snow flurries tease cold weather to come.  This past weekend as early snow dusted Northeast mountains, some ski areas scrambled to be the first, and earliest, to open trails.
