As 2011 began its descent into the history books, my family stood on a snow covered mountain eagerly awaiting the New Year’s celebration at Jiminy Peak Ski Resort. Just as I put a stop to a fierce snowball fight, the crowd cheered the dimming of lights.
It’s an eerie feeling to stand in the dark with a crowd, but that’s what made the arrival of a long line of skiers bearing flares down the mountain that much more dramatic. Even the fireworks display at the end couldn’t hold a candle to the Torchlight Parade.
Wishing you a happy new year filled with bright lights, warm thoughts, and enriching journeys!
