Winter's not over yet

I'll start by noting that the last photo posted by Silver Linings is a bit disturbing. Funny, but disturbing.

As for Winter, I was out on the snow on Monday morning, expecting a 35-40 degree day, since that's what the weather forecast had indicated. Boy, was I wrong. It was just like the middle of February, low 20's, breezy and crystal blue skies.... and snow everywhere.

It was so nice on Monday, I went out again on Tuesday morning for a few runs. The temps were a little warmer, but winter is still here. Which means.......the skiing and riding will continue to be good for the next few weeks. OK, I know, Mother Nature could change her mind. But she's gonna have to work really hard to make all of the snow disappear that fast.

I had the pleasure this winter of taking part in the Innkeeper's Racing series. Sadly, we had our last race on Tuesday. The fun part was, we had a really great End of Season dinner and awards event up at The Hawk Mountain Resort. Great food, music and a ton of heckling, for those people who won 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.....and the team trophy went to Northern Ski Works....nice job! If you know Chris Kleeman, the Innkeeper's race director, say thank you for a great season, without his dedication the weekly races would never happen.

See you on the snow.
