Editorial: Finding that perfect gift
If you can’t find that perfect gift, think of something that’s not wrapped up in a box. Think of an activity that gets them outside for the next four-to-five months of winter.
The best local gift we know of is skiing at either Rikert Nordic Center or the Middlebury Snow Bowl. Buy them a season pass, or a four-pack of day tickets to get them started, along with a day or two of rentals. If they’re too timid to try skiing, they can rent snowshoes or a fat bike at Rikert Nordic Center.
Or if skiing is out, join one of the local fitness centers — or join a walking club in your town (or form one) and take regular walks outside.
Whatever you do this winter, stay active and embrace Vermont’s winter as much as you can. It’s invigorating, fun and keeps you healthy and happy — what better gift could you give?
