Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Today Hugh and I were both chaperoning Winter Wellness groups from Cambridge Elementary School. Hugh sent me these photos of his group catching air in Birch Run Terrain Park. To paraphrase a famous saying “to AIR is Hugh-man”.
Meanwhile, I had three snowboarders in my group and we hit all the blue square (intermediate) and black diamond (expert) trails on Morse Mountain. We even did Upper Morse Liftline… twice!! Former Smuggs Patroller and current Cambridge Area Rotary President Tom Lachance was also chaperoning a Winter Wellness group, and we decided to join forces for a few runs.
After we dropped the Cambridge kids off to catch their bus, Tom and I headed up to Madonna Mountain. The sun was out, there was no wind, and of course all that powder was calling our names. Where would you go when there’s over a foot of fresh snow… the same place we did… BERMUDA! We took Upper Chilcoot to Catwalk to Upper FIS to Lower Doc’s to Ruthie’s to Gary B’s and finally on to Bermuda – one of the great gladed trails at Smuggs. Don’t ask me how it got that name. All I know is that it was a mini-vacation from the world.
