The Skimeister and I did a mellow tour up on Bolton Valley’s backcountry trails today. You’ll see that it was so sunny and warm that he was in a t-shirt.
Snow is melting very fast in the lower reaches of the nordic trail network, but the coverage gets better when you get up to Bryant Cabin and beyond. Rivers and puddles are showing and it makes you keep on your toes, especially as you descend the Gardiner’s Lane or Bryant trails. While there is quite a bit of snow depth in shady places, the snow is really soft and difficult to turn in.
With super-warm weather on tap for this week, I have a feeling that we had our last nordic ski of the season. Sigh.
