Yesterday we did a ski tour at Breadloaf (Middlebury). Half the team was on skate skis, and we skied up to the Beaver Ponds. Justin lead the other half on classic skis down from the top of the Middlebury Gap, and eventually onto the Catamount Trail and then to Breadloaf.
Today we visited our other home trails, Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe. We put a base-layer of blue klister on our classic skis, but it turns out we didn’t need it as there is 6-8″ of powder on the trails! The snowpack in central-VT is solid, and it looks like we are going to get at least another 2-weeks of Nordic skiing!
Winter’s back! 100K
A Stunning day!
The sun is bright and it is just 18 degrees this morning. There has been 6″-7″ of new powder during the last two days and skiing is excellent. Mike is grooming all 60 kilometers today with the big cat and the tracks look superb. The temperatures will remain cold for the next ten days, so winter will be with us for a while.
And the weather for the next 5 days is all teens- and twenties:
