Winter is a harsh season here in northern New England. Sub-zero temperatures, heavy snow, strong winds, and freezing rain are just a few tough conditions that can be experienced during the winter months. As harsh as the season can be, there’s a lot to respect and appreciate about it. Many enjoyable things like skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, and snowshoeing would not be possible without the cold, snow, and ice of winter. So what’s the science behind it all? Why are snowflakes all different? What causes big snowstorms? Why are only the tops of the mountains white sometimes? Come learn the answers to these questions and present your own winter queries! Bring your sleds to zoom down our hill and also explore the winter landscape by snowshoe. There will be some hot beverages provided to enjoy and warm yourself up!
