Rikert video

Our ski friend Mike Hussey is the new Nordic Dr at Rikert, the Middlebury College Nordic Center.  Long -time Director John Rubright retired in the fall and Mike started in early winter.

The Middlebury College Magazine Blog did a nice piece on the people of Rikert.  Click Here And see if you can spot the couple photos that I took of Mike and his daughter at a BKL Race at Bolton last winter.
