Ski Games and Activites

On Friday, January 9th under a clear sky complimented by setting sun and rising full moon the Mt. Mansfield Nordic Club BKSL Skiers and UVM Ski Team joined forces for a great afternoon of ski games, jumping, dual slolom, obstacle course with rollers, Stick in the Mud and a relay race at the end. After the sun had set everyone headed inside for homemade goodies, hot chocolate and poster signing by the UVM Ski Team. [read a little more about this on the UVM blog]
