Late-afternoon Nordic ski in soft snow

Posted Friday, February 9, 2024
— Cross-country skiing, Camel's Hump Nordic

With Saturday looking like it will hit 45 degrees at 2,000 feet with possible rain showers in northern Vermont, it was time to hit the cross-country trails today!

We took a late-afternoon ski at Camel's Hump Nordic Ski Area in Huntington, Vermont. This volunteer-run cross-country trail network sits up rather high near Camel's Hump (although you can't see it because there's a small mountain in between).

On the highest trails there was good snow coverage. As you went further down there were more dirt spots and more tree detritus to avoid. But the warmth of the day made the snow surface nice and soft. It was like spring skiing with a warm breeze. We were even treated to some sunshine later in the afternoon, and a bright sunset.

If that isn't a great way to end a work week, I don't know what is!

We look forward to coming back again this season with fluffy snow. There are some great trails here!

On Sunday we'll get back to more wintry temperatures. Pray for snow!

As fewer ski areas remain open in Vermont, and warm temps continue to melt away our precious snow, it's important to take advantage of nice days to make some spring turns! We flexed some work time…
