Wednesday, January 2 Nordic Update from Gigi:

Finally SNOW and our first day of skiing together. Twelve Nordics gathered on this cold morning. It was 12°F when we left and had “warmed up” to 13°F on our return. We welcomed several new Nordics this morning; so great to have you with us! We stayed at the South End and skied Snows Brook up to Sloppy Joes which was not yet open. We turned around and skied back, some via Figure Three and HB Highway. Because of my chest cold I got a little woozy on the way back and had to rest shortly before returning. Thanks to all of you caring for me so lovingly. Back at the Center we were joined by two more Nordics for lunch and goodies.  Our xc-ski clinic on January 16 will include a review of basic techniques as well as snow plow and herringbone. Clinics are limited to 10 people. If 10 or fewer people sign up we will have one class, if there are more there will be two classes back to back. Please send an e-mail to Patty if you would like to join or sign up next Wednesday at the Nordic Center.

Patty will have a sign-up sheet at the ski area base lodge for those interested in the Jan. 16th Nordic clinic, or email Patty to sign-up.
