This year the East Coast has had record-breaking weather, and not in a way that makes snow-lovers happy. Titus Mountain, along with other east coast ski resorts, have seen little to no natural snow and temperatures too high to make the white gold.
Though the prolific group Five for Fighting sings, “Love can’t change the weather,” it doesn’t stop (and hasn’t stopped) skier and snowboarders from doing everything in their power to bring the pow. Whether we are worshipping the Farmer’s Almanac (who are those guys anyways?) to praying to snow deities to performing snow dances, there are many legends and rituals that are out there.
Are you looking to bring the snow? To get you started, we’re sharing a list of some interesting folklore, mythology, and plain prayers to bring the snow.
A new brand, new events, new logo, new website. Welcome to the 2016 Empire State Winter Games (ESWG), set for February 4-7 in the Adirondack region.
Event organizers met at Titus Mountain in Malone, N.Y., a new ESWG venue, on Tuesday, December 1 to unveil plans that have been in discussion for several years and marks a significant turning point in what is already the largest community-supported collection of athletic games in the nation.
