Saturday March 10, 2018 Cross Country Ski from Highland Lodge to Craftsbury Outdoor Center by Phyllis RubensteinOn Saturday, March 10, 2018, six of us skied from Craftsbury Outdoor Center to Highland Lodge. Thank you, Mother Nature, for the recent snowfall! It is a challenging trip due to the terrain (over 1200 feet elevation gain) and the distance (about 12 miles). But for some icy fields and one skied-off downhill, the trail was in great condition, although grooming on the connector was not as good as grooming at the two centers. We may have grumbled a bit at times, but given the conditions last week, we were very happy. It snowed lightly most of the trip and, although the temperature was moderate, the wind picked up as we returned to Craftsbury, which made for invigorating conditions. We had all skied this trail many times before, and will undoubtedly ski it many times again!
