Winter isn’t just a time for movies and popcorn by the fire. For me, it’s about the snowy mountains of Dover, Vermont. I visit there a couple of times a year with my aunt, uncle and my two older cousins, Nicole and Dylan. They have a house right on the mountain.
The views are breathtaking. My brother, Jake, and I go tubing while everyone else is skiing and snowboarding. It is always so much fun. For hours we would go up and down the mountain. My brother and I would always have races. I always won!
After lunch my cousins would come and join us. We would always race and have snowball fights. At the end of the day we would get chocolate waffles and drive back home to watch the sunset off the mountaintop.
I will never forget these trips to Vermont with my family and always cherish the great memories we have made.
