The summer solstice is, by our thinking at NY Ski Blog, the farthest point from the season in the northern hemisphere. From this day forward we move closer to winter. We smile just a little bit wider as the days get shorter.
Ten 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 a long one, starting with a Snowvember to remember, and running all the way into June with the latest Killington closing in the last several years. At the highest elevations the snowpack was deep, with the stake at Mount Mansfield setting several records during the season.
