LINCOLN’S IAN FORGAYS plows through backcountry snow in an image that appeared on the cover of Vermont Sports in February/March of 2016. The magazine named Forgays Athlete of the Year in 2016. Photo by Brian Mohr/EmberPhoto
Ian Forgays was a backcountry skier: “Skiin’ Ian” as he was known and “Lincoln Lynx.” He wasn’t the type of guy you would see on chairlifts, unless it was the Single Chair at Mad River Glen where he worked as a part-time liftie, manning the summit station. You might catch glimpses of him between the trees, a yellow or red jacket charging down a drainage off the spine of the Greens, a plume of powder shooting up behind like white smoke. That white smoke was an elixir. It was what Forgays, 54, was after when he set out from his home in Lincoln, Vt. for the White Mountains on Monday, Feb. 1....

LINCOLN — A new generation of Lincoln residents is starting to take shape, with young families moving to town or planning to do so in the near future. They have children ranging in age from infants to toddlers, and they have cited the Lincoln Community School as one of the biggest reasons for settling or returning to Lincoln. But with the recent decline in enrollment at the school and a proposal in the Mount Abraham Unified School District to discontinue elementary education at LCS, some are worried they may have come too late. Amaia Perta, who attended LCS in the early 1990s, is planning to...
