On the FIRST day of Bretton Woods, 8 intrepid TOHG members arrived at the AMC Highland Center to find a warm welcome and strict mask and distancing rules.
On the SECOND day of Bretton Woods, we braved an overcast sky and a 5º temp to remember how to put on ski boots outdoors and how to ski wearing a mask without fogging up the goggles.
On the THIRD day of Bretton Woods, 6 survivors gloried in the warmth of 15º and 6 inches of fresh snow and tried the new café at the top of the gondola.
On the FOURTH day of Bretton Woods, 2 of the remaining 3 members tested new x-country equipment before driving home on freshly cleared roads.
The burning question: Is it safe to ski during the pandemic? Our response: The Highland Center AND the Bretton Woods ski area are doing everything right.
We won’t hesitate to return.
Two chair lifts and the gondola were running. And yes, we enjoyed sharing Pat P’s 90th birthday. She skied with style and grace, unlike some of us simply pushing snow down the Hill!
Looking forward to Vermont in January.
