Hibbard had long been interested in snow-covered landscapes, and at the recommendation of fellow Boston artist and Fenway Studios resident William J. Kaula, he first traveled to Vermont in 1915 and was immediately taken with the mountains, valleys and charming residents of the region. Bondville, Vermont shows the peaceful village and frozen Winhall River nestled beneath the impressive peak of Stratton Mountain. It is a scene Hibbard would have encountered often, having wintered in Bondville for several years before moving a few miles southeast to Jamaica.
