We are closed. Even with 10 inches of new snow. We are trying our darnedest to stay put, and practice social distancing. Ian happens to be the best at this with Chuck a close second. Me, staying away from other people I like, is not really what I am good at.
We are still closed because, 1) not spreading Covid-19. 2) We lost most of the base, and what is left is really icy. 3) This is heavy wet snow and it is going to melt fast.
This is how we spent a day last week:
All 6 of us had on skis. We skied a back country loop, 3 or 4 miles. It was hard skiing, crusty snow in spots, icy in other places, soft and mushy where the sun was shining directly on the snow. We skied on leaves, grass, beaver ponds, beaver pond damns, and snow. We crossed two brooks and both times had throw every ones skis and poles over to the other side and then shimmy across a downed tree to get across the water. The photo below is Ian just getting over the first log.
Please be safe friends. This will pass and we will all get to our new normal. We look forward to see each and everyone of you next season.
May you be well, May you be peaceful and at ease. May you filled with loving kindness.
