On the heels of last winter's heavy snows, this season has seemed a welcome relief for many residents of the Greater New Milford area.

For those who love winter's outdoor activities, however, last weekend's snowstorm was a joyous sight.

By mid-day Saturday and all through the day on Sunday, hundreds hit the mini-slopes of our seven-town area with their sleds, tubes and anything else they could muster to experience the joy of whizzing down a snowy hillside.
