Garnet Hill Xcoutry Ski ~ Mar 6, 2014

Journal entry by Nancy Kimball



Against a backdrop of brillant sunshine, azure sky and snow frosted evergreens, 11 caners spend a glorious day at Garnet Hill Ski Touring Center. The head count varied throughout the day due to certain members who suddenly disappeared then reappeared at surprising locations.

In the morning Group A skiied the groomed trails down to the bus pickup at Roger's Road. Group B opted to venture into the backcountry in the direction of Botheration Pond. All caners found their way back to the ski center for lunch.

There was a reconfiguration of groups after lunch: Group A skiied down to 13th lake and crossed the lake to view the ice formations on the rocks near the trail to Peaked Mt. Pond - no bus pickup so the return was all uphill!!!. Group B explored the variety of groomed trails that led down to Roger's Road and the bus. Everyone agreed the skiing conditions were ideal and made it a memorable day. The Participants of our premier event ( including me) Donna W., Peter W., Fran, Claire, Lynn, Tom, Don, Margie, Gail and Liz.
