Mother Nature came through on her obligation to give this holiday season, from nearly coast to coast. After a dismal 2012 season, which set a scary precedent for skiing's climate change-addled future, the two weeks surrounding Christmas in the Northeast were cause for celebration, jubilation, and inebriatian. In snow, of course.

So, dear readers, feast on some holiday leftovers, consisting of homemade shots of bountiful powder from Vermont to New Hampshire to Maine. Pass the gravy.
