Cabin fever strikes? Go skiing

Cat Wants Out It may be Spring but our cat wants nothing to do with going outside just yet. She longs for the day she can prowl for moles, voles and mice without getting her paws wet. If kitty could don a pair of ski boots she wouldn’t mind so much.

Even with the annual X2 pass dangling from my ski pants, teasing me of savings, I only had the chance to ski twice this year. That changes on Monday when I fly out to Utah for GoNomad on a press trip in Park City.

To get my quads in shape again, I skied Stratton last Friday. The next day I read that a Mass. youth died after crashing into a sign near 91 Trail. The 91 is an easy run – no glades, super wide trail and beautiful conditions. It was the 16 year olds first time on snowboarding.

As sad as it is, hopefully, it doesn’t tarnish the thought of Spring skiing when the weather does improve. More than just a resort, the Stratton Foundation has been raised monies local Vermont in-need programs for youth by selling the current gondolas to make way for the comfy new rides next season and a benefit “24-Hour” ski event last week. Live music, fireworks, lighted ski runs and sunrise on the mountain was enjoyed by 70 teams that attended.
