People choose to live in Vermont for a variety of reasons. Some pursue their dream job. Some choose to raise their kids in the safest state in the U.S. Others want to stay close to family. For many, it’s the lure of the mountain–whether you’re skiing on ice or enduring “loud powder,” Vermont’s ski mountains will give you a thrill, every time. It’s best to stay close to that kind of happiness, which is why Vermont skier/blogger Connor Davis stays close to Mad River Glen.
