Dear NS'ers,We here at NS would like to take the time to wish each and every single one of you and all your families Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas. As most of our local hills get hammered with that good ol' powdery white stuff that has brought us all together, we hope you enjoy your time off from work, school and the everyday stresses in life in exchange for a wonderful and white Christmas with family and friends. With all the snow that's out there, be sure to pry yourself away from last-minute shopping at the malls, cheek-pinching grandmas, drunken uncles, snooping to see if your folks got you a new set of skis, and eating all the cookies mom has made (you've got to save some for Santa!) for some time on the slopes in what has been an amazing start to the season.As everyone knows, it's been a great year for NS and trust us, things are only going to get bigger and better in 2008. Of course, none of it would have been possible without you, our loyal members and from the bottom of our hearts, thank-you, and we hope you have a great holiday season. Best wishes,The NS StaffDoug BishopChris O'ConnellPaul StanisciJeff SchmuckJason Mousseau
