On the trails– by Liz
I went on one of the best skis of the year this afternoon with my friend Eric Tremble. All these photos are from Saturday.
We went out today with the intention of skiing Telemark and Bobcat– two trails that finally have enough snow to groom. It was a blast and I felt a little bit like we were in the Bill Koch/Rossignol Movie- the Ski Experience.
Art and Eric– discussing the best equipment to use for the Catamount Trail BC Challenge Race.
The kick wax worked great and we had an easy time striding all the way up Telemark. Skiing down Bobcat was super fun– it’s still a little bumpy, but this challenged us to concentrate on balance.
Great view of the alpine trails from Bolton Lodge- from Bolton Lodge we headed up Beaver Pond and Deer Run. The snow on the groomed trails was quite good– and fast with several inches of new snow tilled into the transformed crust.

We bombed down Spruce Run- slid all the turns and checked out views of Camel’s Hump and the BV alpine trails along the way.
Snowbanks on Maple Loop– we couldn’t pass up this photo opportunity. The snow pack is still so deep and we are forecast to get more snow this week.
At the end of the ski I ran into Clem Holden, who has been skiing at Bolton for more than 50 years– he says the conditions are perfect– get out and ski.
