This morning we had perfect weather (mid 60s & cool) for our combi ski/run/hike OD. We staggered our group so the boys started first, the old girls started a few K down the road from the boys, and the younger girls a few K down the road from them. Everyone skied through the town of Stratton and up to Grout Pond, arriving within a few minutes of each other. We swapped our classic boots for running shoes and then went up and over the backside of Stratton on the AT and then down the alpine trails back to school. It was great to have Alex and Helena join us for practice!
