As you may know, Sunday River opened last weekend, and then closed again. Not so great for the alpine skiers, but perfect for us nordic skiers! On Wednesday a bunch of us trekked up the mountain with our skis in search of snow.
It took some wandering to locate the snow, but once we did, we skied until we dropped. Literally. We decided to ski down the black diamond alpine trail on nordic skis. Don’t ask me why. Anyways, we got some quality skiing in at the top (and relatively flat) section of the trail. It was phenomenal – the view was stunning, the sun bright and warm, and the snow deep and fast.
Check out this video, it’s pretty shaky
because I was holding the camera when I was skiing.
