No sooner were we back from our wonderful fall-tacular road trip then it began to snow; the very next morning there was a light layer of frosting on everything, ready or not!
But it was not enough to amount to anything ski-able. So…as is customary at this time of year, the local Nordic Center unpacked all the snow it had saved under its great pile of sawdust all through an unseasonably hot summer…and laid a Cross-country ski course for all the athletes who come for miles around to get a jump-start on their training.
It was quite a peculiar process to watch…
But the product made everyone happy–kids and skiers alike!
Then followed some quintessential fall days and we had the grandkids out for the weekend…
Perfect timing, for after that the snow came in earnest!
And now we are able to ski right out the back door!
