and winter begins.
Winter in Wisconsin traces a new path…
charts a new trail.
A season of frosted landscapes…
that last but a day,
icy blue vistas atop the waters,
and deep green pines framed in snowy white.
and it’s a wonder to behold.
A season like no other,
a view of the state like no other –
Wisconsin Winter… From the Air”

This narration featuring the voice of Wisconsin author Michael Perry begins the first segment of the all-new Wisconsin Winter From the Air, coming in November from Wisconsin Public Television.
We all know it’s coming… that first real snowfall. The colors of autumn faded long ago, and a new season begins. Fresh white blankets the ground, and the familiar path becomes a new trail. Everything is changed. Winter in Wisconsin doesn’t really feel ‘here’…until that first snow. There are bound to be many chilly mornings ahead, and more snowfalls to come, but there’s something about that first one, something about a Wisconsin winter that always seems…just a little magical.
As with 2014’s visually stunning Wisconsin From the Air, take to the sky once again to capture the wonder of winter, a season that transforms the state’s landscape.
