How time flies! September is almost over and the leaves are in full color here on Vermont's scenic Route 100. CC Outdoor Store is anticipating lots of new arrivals as the seasons change which we'll start featuring on our home page. We've started bringing in winter sports backpacks, headlamps for those darker days, and new hiking pole brands for getting around in the snow. Within the next week we're expecting big shipments of Sierra Designs Gnar down jackets and other great outerwear. This should be followed by snowshoes, snowshoes, and more snowshoes.
I know it's a little earlier to talk snowshoes...and you'll hear plenty about them here. So let's turn to another of our favorite topics: Chocolate! What does this have to do with anything you ask...well we feel there is nothing better in the backcountry than the boost you get from real chocolate...not the candy bars that generally pass as chocolate but the kind made with 50% or more cocoa. Whether exercising or trying to get through an afternoon at the office, chocolate is the cure. If you are lucky enough to get up to our area this fall...or any other time; our outdoor store is located only 3 miles from what we consider some of the best artisan chocolate in the world. Go ahead and check out Laughing Moon Chocolates! You'll thank us later.
