It's a bit on the arctic-side this morning, so do some serious bundling up, but worth it if you want to ski. Conditions are pretty good up here--the season's wonders never cease. Snow is granular and some of the outer trails have narrowed, track is often shallow but the skiing is good!
Due to the cold and windchill, Nordic Kids is cancelled for the morning. It will resume next week and kids will have the option to participate in the paintball biathlon immediately following their ski (we may even incorporate it into the program, depending on timing).
A heads up for skiers tomorrow: the Granite State Snowshoe Championship will be on the South End trails tomorrow morning, the race starts at 11:00am.
Beginning tomorrow we will also be welcoming Special Olympic athletes for their games which go through Tuesday.
And, it's the repeat: I have events listed below, but there's some that shouldn't be missed: Paintball Biathlon on the 11th & 12th (ski, shoot at targets with the paintball gun and ski again...) and if you ever wanted to take your skinny skis on the alpine hill you'll have your chance when Nordics take over Leroy's Loop on the 26th, and play in some terrain (ski up and go through a course of banked turns, a jump or two if you want--just for us!).
That was a long sentence, but you get the idea, let's enjoy March!
