Training Center and XC trails closed for the season

Thanks to everyone for a great ski and snowboard season.  This poem written by a Long-board racer in the 1890′s pretty much says it all…..

 

THE SNOW-SHOE RACES

 DOWN THE MOUNTAIN SIDE, LIKE BIRDS IN FLIGHT,

OR METEORS ON A STARRY NIGHT–

BENDING LOW TO MISS THE BREEZE,

FLYING PAST THE STATELY TREES,

RUSHING DOWN TO THE FLAT BELOW,

DANCING OVER THE “BEAUTIFUL SNOW”,

FALLING, ROLLING, SEEING STARS__

THEN HEAR THE LAUGHING CROWD’S HURRAHS.

 

AWAY DOWN THE VALLEYS, WHERE ORANGES GROW,

THEY MISS ALL THE FUN WE HAVE IN THE SNOW.
