Ski season

Beginning in the 1930s, New England ski trails quickly expanded. Many of the early runs were cut by the Civilian Conservation Corps, a Depression-era government work-relief program that provided jobs for unskilled laborers. And while some of those runs remain extant, skiing in New England isn’t the quaint small business it was then, with Vermont alone enjoying a $750 million industry. Climate change threatens the future of skiing in New England, but the past lives on as a snowy wonderland through these images. - Lane Turner and Lisa Tuite
