The summer solstice is, by our thinking at NYSkiBlog, the farthest point from the ski season in New York. From this day forward we move closer to winter. We smile just a little bit wider as the days get shorter.
Eleven years ago, for the first time, we published our Ski Season Calendar, a list of milestones for skiers on the longest day of the year. It’s become a tradition to feature it on the home page and update it as necessary. Last year at this time we naively predicted (hoped) that life would return to normal by the time it started to snow. But this past year was clearly different. Still, mixed in with all the rules and reservations and distancing we had some excellent days.
