We sent off 2016 with another ski today! This time we clicked into our skinny cross-country skis and did a loop on the groomed Nordic trails at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.
The snow conditions were really good on the less-traveled trails that we ventured on. There were about 6 to 8 inches of fresh snow on the sides of the trails. It was lovely!
Trapps had set classic tracks on all the trails we hit. After missing out on a lot of cross-country skiing last year because of a lack of snow, it felt great to be back in the tracks!
We were surprised to do much of our skiing in the sunshine today. (Bonus!) By the time we returned to the Nordic center, snowflakes were falling and there were a lot of people around. Again today, it was best to get out in the morning to avoid the holiday crowds, and to choose the paths less traveled.
Happy New Year to all!
