When the Burlington Country Club (BCC) turns from green to white, the members-only rules are lifted and Burlingtonians take to the course to ski and sled.
I brought my cross-country skis to BCC twice this week and enjoyed some quick exercise in a surprisingly nice environment. The course is lovely when there aren't people whacking balls around!
While Sunday was a busy day at the club—especially with droves of kids on the sledding hill—lunchtime on Friday was nearly a ghost town. Because the course isn't groomed, I had a better time on my light backcountry skis than on my super-skinny classic skis. I really need machine groomed tracks for those skinny little things.
My lunchtime ski was just the thing to perk up my afternoon. I'll have to do that more often!
