Meet the Woman of Stratton – Mariann Spear

By Courtney DiFiore Mariann Spear is our Snowboard School Supervisor and ex-Snow Reporter (which I find pretty awesome, being an ex-Snow Reporter myself).

Indian Summer

By Courtney DiFiore As a symphony of color fills the Green Mountains, the temperature begins to drop, foreshadowing the coming winter months. I begin to anticipate cool mornings and frost covered greens on the golf course but this year I’ve been duped! As we enter Columbus Day weekend, temperatures are hovering in the 60s with sunshine in the forecast too. Mother Nature is being oh so kind and adding an…
