A Day at the Races

I just had the best ski of the season. The backcountry conditions are just about perfect. Get outside, it's a beautiful day.

Last Wednesday, I was invited to a gathering of the tribes.
Over 60 bright and spirited kids from the Mad River Valley Bill Koch League celebrated Olympic style at the Green Mountain Valley School. Flags a flying, colorful costumes, and smiles a plenty competed in fun filled relay races and casually timed trials. Their energy was infectious, oh to be 8 again. Teams consisting of kids, coaches, and parents skate skied the twisty track around the soccer field to the finish. 

Woohoo! Go Janie!

Awards presented along with really big chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa brought a sweet end to a happy day. Give 'em snow, give 'em skis, give 'em wings.
