Sunday March 10 2019 Hardwood Flats (Elmore) XC Ski by Steve and Heather Bailey

Snow turning to rain was in the forecast, causing several people to drop out, but four skiers decided to go anyway. Luckily all we encountered were high winds and some snow which stopped soon after we got there. We did a couple of loops and had lunch in a small cabin with a great view over Hardwood Pond and the Worcester range beyond. Hardwood Flats is a lovely parcel of private land near Elmore which is groomed and open to the public for free. At an elevation of 1600 ft, it often has snow when other places have rain. It has become one of our favorite places to ski.
