Not hard to Decide...

Thursday, February 25, 2016

No doubt about it, I am canceling the ThursdaySki this week. The weather just won't give us a good snowstorm this year.
It has been amazing how good the xc skiing has been considering all that we have been dealt!!

I don't see that a WednesdaySki alternative is worth posting. It might be good to get out at about 8:00 am to enjoy the snow before it changes to sleet then freezing rain in the afternoon. Each forecast I see has a different tiing on this. You might see me out on the Ellis tomorrow early morning in the snow.

I hope for better next week!!

ThursdayBike might start up earlier than usual this season.

Speaking of Biking....
Anyone thinking about the C&O Canal-Great Allegheny Passage Bike Tour this September?? We have 8 participants. We need 2 more for the second set of 5 to get a 20% discount (Adventure Cycling does discounts in groups of 5). September 17-24. Check out the tour on www.adventurecycling.org.

Also, a closer to home tour:  Cycle Massachusetts has an interesting route this year the goes along the southern MA border to the northern RI and CT borders, out to NY and the Berkshires. July 30-August 5 with shorter options possible. www.cyclema.com

Ski Some Jackson Trails

Thursday, February 18, 2016

The snow should dry out at set up today and tonight so that skiing should be good on Thursday. Let's check out the trails at Jackson. We will pick the best option from Thursday morning's groomed list. Hopefully it will be something new and different!  Meet in the lodge at 10:00 am, ready to ski!

Bear Notch Ski Touring, 10:00 am

Thursday, February 11, 2016

A few inches of snow since last week has freshened the trails. Jackson and Bear Notch continue to have good skiing. Let's meet at 10:00 at Bear Notch Ski Touring to check out their trails. We can also see what the conditions are like on Bear Notch Road and the snowmobile trails in the Experimental Forest.

Bring Skate and/or Classic skis!  We will ski the riverside trails, these are excellent for easy skating, so bring the skate skis for practice! Switch to classic, if you like, for the hillier trails.

Afterwards, we can enjoy a soup and fresh bread lunch!

See you at 10:00, near the bread machine!

ThursdayBIKE 1:00 pm CANCELED

I am CANCELING this biking idea because the roads are still too wet and may be salty. This is just not good for the shiny parts on our bikes. The day is beautiful, and I lan to take a walk in the warm sunshine!

Thursday, February 4, 2016

Due to all the rain and warm weather it may be better to bike than ski this Thursday. Forecast says sunshine in the afternoon and 45 degrees. Yikes.

Meet at the Scenic Vista parking lot in Intervale, at 1:00 pm. We can do the short, slow and flat ride down Route 16A then up Town Hall Road to the part that gets steep. The river will be rushing after the rain and snow melt, with a look-see.

Bring a mountain bike or hybrid or a bike that you don't mind getting sandy.

We will ride about 10 miles.

Think Snow for next week......
