Trip Reports

Saturday February 01 2020 Ski High Lodge to Craftsbury Outdoor Center by Phyllis Rubenstein

On Saturday, February 1, five of us skied 12 miles from Highland Lodge in Greensboro to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. The trails were in excellent shape and well groomed. In the absence of fresh snow, the down hills were very fast! In any condition this is a challenging route with plenty of long ascents and descents winding through woods and farmland, as well as some more moderate terrain in the woods and along streams. The temperature was a comfortable 28 degrees and there was no wind. We saw coyote scat on the trail near a field bordered by woods and turkey scat on the trail near cornfields For some of us, this route is a favorite, and we hope to ski it a couple more times this season!
