Weathervane Wednesday ~ An alpine skier

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post every week.  I started out by publishing only weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes from all over New England.  Sometimes these weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are very unique.  Often, my readers tip me off to some very special and unusual weather vanes.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #285?  Scroll down to see the answer...

This weathervane was spotted above the Nails and Spa business in Lincoln, New Hampshire.  Lincoln is a year round resort community at the entrance to the Kancamagus Trail and the White Mountain National Forest, near Loon Mountain Ski area.  Years ago Lincoln was mostly a winter resort because of the skiing, but now it is visited by tourists all year long.  Many of the small ski shops along Main Street (Route 112) have become other types of businesses, but the skier weathervane remains above this spa.

This two dimensional copper weathervane still has the shiny patina on the skier figure and the cupola.  I love the details such as the flying scarf, the baskets on the ski poles, and the wire bindings on the ski boots.
