Whilst you are daydreaming of ski slopes . . . check out Brian and Brennan Degan's gorgeous gingerbread rendering of Mad River Glen. I saw the candied creation on December 6 in Waitsfield at the BigPicture Theater & Cafe's two-day "GINGERBREAD HOUSE CONTEST & EXHIBIT."
Mad River opens for its 60th season tomorrow morning. According to a morning conditions report, the skiers' co-op received 8 inches of snow last night.
