The summer solstice is, by our thinking at NY Ski Blog, the farthest point 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 a list of milestones on the longest day of the year, and it’s become a tradition to update it and feature it on the home page. This past year was obviously different. In the first half of the season we had some excellent days before everything came crashing down due to you-know-what. We’re optimists at NYSkiBlog and as such we’re going to assume — for now — that normalcy will return next season. or the season after that, at the lastest. As such we’re not going to make wholesale changes to the calendar.
