Ski Season is Upon Us!

Don’t forget the Winter Indulgence Package is available the rest of January and the beginning of February. After an unusually warm Holiday Season, the temperatures have dropped low enough that the ski resorts have been able to open. We expect temperatures to hover in the 20s over the next week or two with no warm up in sight which is great for winter sports enthusiasts. Ice Skating has opened up on the Norwich Town Green as well as other places around the Upper Valley. Numerous places to snowshoe and Nordic ski – including right here in Norwich – are now abundant. Below, find a list of the resorts and conditions as they have been reported this morning, January 9, 2015.
