You Take Your Car, I Take My Skis


I just finished checking in with my staff for the night and grabbed one pair of the employee backcountry skis. I walked out the door of the Nordic Center and proceed down Broadway. At the intersection of Teardrop I noticed the sky began to turn a beautiful pink hue with the mountains in the background. I continued down past the historic Bolton lodge, then all the way down to the “S” turn on the BV access road.

Once I crossed the street to the Catamount Trail, I knew by the ski boundary sign that I was leaving the boundaries of Bolton Valley Nordic area*. Fortunately, the Catamount Trail is very well marked, the snow was plentiful and I knew exactly where I was going. I crossed Joiner Brook later at the snowmobile bridge and stayed on the snowmobile tracks until I noticed a trail with ski track on it. I followed it a unfortunately fell a few inches into a running stream. Those kinds of things can happen when you leave ski area boundaries, but I was well prepared.

After about 2 minutes of banging and scraping my skies together I clipped them back on and proceeded to the trail in front of me. I came out on the switchback and after about five minutes of gliding and pushing, I ended my run at the Smiley School parking lot and walked up the road to my house at the bottom of the Access Road.

What an inspiring and thrilling ski down the mountain, and an amazing commute home.

  25. Key Benefits Of Integrating QuickBooks With Zapier
    After successful integration of these two apps, users can save time by eliminating data re-entry copying from QuickBooks to other applications. It is user-friendly as well as cost-effective as you don’t require the expertise of any developers or code knowledge in building your own app integrations.

  31. "You take your car, I take my skis," a playful phrase, emphasizing different preferences for transportation. It reflects a lighthearted attitude towards individual choices and diverse ways of getting around. The statement suggests embracing diversity in lifestyle and the freedom to choose one's own path, whether it involves driving or hitting the slopes with skis.
