      Northeast USA snow areas

      Vermont Dec 2, 2016 at 6:09 PM

      I want to take my two nieces, ages 18 and 13, to someplace "up north" in the USA to see snow over the Christmas break. I have skied in years past but no more. And the girls have never skied. So that is not an activity to consider. Just want to fly into a decent main stream airport and not have to drive too far to get to perhaps a ski resort where even if there is no real snow, we will still have the artificial fluff. :-) Vermont offers some darling villages with covered bridges but those are about 2 hours from any airport. Perhaps that will be the case with any of the "guaranteed" snow areas.......a bit of a drive from an airport. So, I am relying on my team of VT experts to point me in the right direction. I am thinking 3-4 nights at a hotel / resort. I don't mind driving. Just don't want to spend much of the vacation behind the wheel. Snow boarding, taking cable cars to the top of a mountain, sledding, horse drawn carriage rides........bring 'em on.

      Have thought of Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New York etc

      Greetings,Happy New Year! Hope all is well up in The hills of VT. Just outside of Chester, I believe to the North there is a Road that you can travel which leeds to Ludlow? Yes I belive Ludlod and then on to Weston. Well at the crest of this cross road was or maybe still is a Dairy Farm, I'ts name was Hill Top Farm. The House and barn are on the right side of the road, with a 3 or 4 bay garage on the left. The Barn sits above the house and looks out over the valley. My Question, Is it still there? and is it still a dairy? I was the manager for that farm owned by the Stiaznee's Family back in 1980, 81, & 82. I never had a reason to go back, even though I left on good terms. I guess life gets in the way. So if ANYONE knows of this Farm Please let me know. I would like to say hello or at least take a road trip down memory lane.Thanks Theo
