Snowshoes and maple at Morse Farm in Montpelier, Vt.
Montpelier farm grooms trails for fun amid all things maple
On a bright but brisk Saturday morning in early February, Nordic skiers were out in force to take advantage of the thin layer of snow that had finally coated the trails in this virtually snow-free winter. We found slightly deeper cover when we opted instead to follow a snowshoe trail into the woods. Snowshoeing may lack the grace and speed of skiing, but we have come to appreciate the chance to survey the winter landscape at a slower pace.
