Today is my birthday, forty-two! This photo was taken in the winter of 1975 and is one of my all-time favorites: Mom and Dad taking me out on our Ski-Doo sleds by our camp on Benton Pond in Otis, Massachusetts.
At three years old, I was pretty into zooming around out in the snow. And I remember really liking my snowmobile gear – the fun and excitement that this specific uniform enabled, picking out cool patches for my mother to stitch on the cozy one-piece suit, the movement of the fur around the snorkel hood and thanks to a friend of the family – a custom Tweety Bird paint job on my helmet!
Snowmobiling has always been a family activity for us and the first thing that taught my brother and me that wintertime is playtime. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

1/9/1961 Press Photo: CANNON MOUNTAIN, N.H.: The most time-consuming thing about skiing – getting back to the top of the slope you’ve just slid down – is no trouble for Lynn Cutler, of Hamilton, Mass., who zooms up Cannon Mountain, N.H., in the latest of uphill ski devices. The two-passenger, gasoline-powered “Ski Doo” can roar up the Mittersill ski area slopes at a speed of 20 miles an hour.

Miss Devenger, a freshman at the Boston University School of Music who reigned last summer as “Miss Lake Sunapee”, is anxious to try out her skis at the popular New Hampshire ski development which needs another few inches of snow for good skiing.
