Each year in February, our trail club has a ski and chili-eating event at the Big M Ski Area. Today we had a great turnout, great snow, great weather, and a ton of fun! I've put links to other years at the end.
The day started with incredible frost and temperatures near zero, and I'll probably show you some of those pictures tomorrow. But the day warmed, the sun shone, and it was about as nice a winter day as you could imagine.
Inside the warming shelter, there was a cheerful fire going in the wood stove, and big pots of chili heating on top. Several kinds of cookies balanced out the meal.
I got there a little late (I stopped too often on the way there to take sparkly frost pictures), but I saw someone skiing across a clearing. I thought, "that person moves like Josh Schuyler." And I was right! We seem to run into him in fun places, like Whitehall.
There are two easy trails. I skied one of them twice and the other once, for a total of about six miles. What? You say you've never seen me actually on skis? OK.
It was a Quality Day in just about every possible way!
