Bartlett Cross Country Ski Trip

Thursday, February 08, 2024 8:24 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The skies couldn’t have been bluer, the snow couldn’t have been better and even the temperatures were just right. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was just about a 10!

Twenty-one members trekked up to Bartlett, NH to stay from February 6-8 at the Laurencian Ski Club. The club is comfortable and roomy and ski club (and TOHG) members Maureen S, Joan W and Paul M went out of their way to welcome us. They were always there to pitch in to help and we couldn’t have done it without them!!

After everyone arrived, we gathered for the traditional happy hour. This year, unlike in 2023, we didn’t lose electricity for hours due to downed power lines!! We feasted on the many delicious dishes everyone brought at a potluck supper. We could have fed an army!

Next day about half the group set out for Great Glen in Gorham for some truly outstanding XC skiing. Others skied at Bear Notch and others snowshoed. One group of showshoers were challenged with some very tough uphills, but in Top of the Hill style, they powered through and returned tired, but triumphant.

Hungry as bears after all the exertion we filled up on pizza, salad and lots of tasty leftovers. On the way home many took advantage of the still gorgeous weather and conditions and got in some more exercise.

If the members of the ski club will have us, we’ll be back!!!
